My name is James Guckert. Well, when you read it, it's always pronounced some other way.
I was given no special information by the White House, or by anybody else, for that matter.
I have always had an attorney on retainer, and now I believe I will have to put him to work.
If I am a Republican shill, wouldn't you think I am the least amount of a threat to the president?
Mr. President, How are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?
As I've said, I've been advised not to get into the specifics out there. Is there some truth out there? Yes. Is there a lot of falsehood out there? Absolutely.
I answered their questions truthfully and honestly, but I would prefer not to say more. I assume the information was routed back and that is why I was not called to testify.
I'd like to get back into journalism. I'm hoping someone will offer me a job as a commentator or one of those political analysts that you see on the news shows all the time.
My employer was never at any time aware of anything in my past beyond the writing I did, because, frankly, it isn't relevant to the job I was asked to do, which was to be a reporter.
Even though it has been very painful, lots of opportunities have come forward journalistically. Once all of this blows over, I think it might actually help that I have gotten this attention.
