Mr. Chairman, we, in Connecticut, are proud of Pat Gray, and so am I. We, in Connecticut, respect Pat Gray, and so do I.Mr. Chairman, I have known Pat Gray for many years. I have always found him to be a man of outstanding ability, character, and integrity. Every job that Pat Gray has performed he has performed with excellence. There is no question in my mind that Pat Gray is a dedicated public servent who will perform any task assigned to him in a nonpartisan manner. I respect the FBI, and the entire Nation respects the FBI. The FBI is one of the great law enforcement institutions in America. All of us know that when youngsters come to visit Washington, one of the first places they want to see is the FBI.There is no question in my mind that as Director of the FBI, Mr Gray will perform his tasks on a completely nonpartisan basis. In all the years I have known Pat Gray he has never questioned the civil rights of individuals and the protection of constitutional guarantees. My feeling is that only the criminal has much to fear from Patrick Gray, and that the law-abiding citizen has nothing to fear from Pat Gray. He will be a defender of our rights, a defender of the Constitution, and law enforcement in this Nation will be stronger with Pat Gray as Director of the FBI. He has my unqualified support.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
