THE HONORABLE SENATOR PATRICK J. LEAHY (D-VERMONT): For the record, please state your full name.

ALBERTO GONZALES: Senator, in, in my mind, I think it's absolutely true that it's important to state my name. I believe that there are some good things about records; however, at this point I cannot confirm what you're seeking.

LEAHY: Well, I'll just read your name and you can affirm that. Ok? For the record, your name is Alberto Gonzales, is that correct?

GONZALES: Senator, I'm, I'm not conceding the veracity of the nature of any such characterizations.

LEAHY: Are you, or are you not Alberto Gonzales?

GONZALES: Senator, I, I don't recall.

LEAHY: You've been Alberto Gonzales all your life. You learned how to drive as Alberto Gonzales, you graduated college as Alberto Gonzales, you were confirmed as Attorney General of the United States of America as Alberto Gonzales. Are you telling me that you don't remember whether or not you are Alberto Gonzales?

GONZALES: Senator, in my mind, no, I do not recall.

(Time Lapse)

THE HONORABLE SENATOR ARLEN SPECTOR (R-PENNSYLVANIA): Thank you Mr. Chairman and Mr. Gonzales. Mr. Gonzales, it's safe to say that you attended meetings in the White House, is that correct?

GONZALES: Senator, yes people certainly work in the White House. The White House is a place where business takes place every day. Was I ever specifically in the White House?

SPECTOR: That's the question.

GONZALES: Senator, I've been searching my mind for the last few weeks, and I can't seem to recall the answer to that question.

SPECTOR: There are pictures of you at the White House.

GONZALES: Senator, I'm not calling those pictures into question. I believe those pictures. I think those pictures are wonderful objects. I do not oppose those pictures, but those pictures and my recollection can be at odds.

(Time Lapse)
