LBJ DUMPS STOCKS 2.png
 
THIS WAS AROUND ONE P.M. ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, JUST AS KENNEDY WAS BEING PRONOUNCED DEAD. HOLLOWAY WAS HEADING HOME FROM THE OFFICE AND WAS PASSING THROUGH THE RECEPTION AREA. THE SWITCHBOARD OPERATOR EXCITEDLY NOTED THAT SHE WAS PATCHING THE VICE PRESIDENT THROUGH FROM PARKLAND HOSPITAL TO HOLLOWAY'S BOSS, FIRM SENIOR PARTNER WADDY BULLION, WHO WAS LBJ'S PERSONAL TAX LAWYER. THE OPERATOR INVITED HOLLOWAY TO LISTEN IN. LBJ WAS TALKING "NOT ABOUT THE CONSPIRACY OR THE TRAGEDY," HOLLOWAY RECALLED. "I HEARD HIM SAY:'OH, I GOTTA GET OF MY GODDAMN HALLIBURTON STOCK!' LYNDON JOHNSON WAS TALKING ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF HIS POLITICAL PROBLEMS WITH HIS HALLIBURTON STOCKS AT A TIME WHEN THE PRESIDENT HAD BEEN OFFICIALLY DECLARED DEAD. AND THAT PISSED ME OFF...IT REALLY MADE ME FURIOUS."
