LBJ Telephone Transcripts

Recommended Posts

Last week the LBJ Library released 23 hours of Johnson's telephone conversations recorded between April and July 1966. The library has now made available a total of 464 hours of phone conversations. Claudia Anderson, the library's senior archivist, said Johnson was more of a phone person than a writer. In a conversation with Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas - a Johnson nominee to the court - Johnson expressed concern that Robert Kennedy was using polls to suggest a link between Johnson and the assassination of President Kennedy. Johnson said pollster Lou Harris operated at the whim of Robert Kennedy. "He's got everybody raising questions about it," Johnson said. "And 2 percent of them think that I did it."
