Gonzo told DOJ investigators that he had "no present recollection of any of this the order" but advised a member of the committee last year who inquired about the order that there was "no question about it," adding, "I had charged Mr. Sampson with organizing and coordinating the effort to gather information and present to me recommendations. Ms. Goodling assisted Mr. Sampson in the discharge or a wide variety of responsibilities."
