Tommy Davis Deposition in Headley Case (extract)

Q (question): So do you have any responsibilities for Sea Organization members who blow?

A (answer): No.

Q: You’re not supposed to follow individuals who have left the Sea Organization?

A: I’m not actually sure I understand the question.

Q: Okay. Do you follow individuals who left the Sea Organization without prior authorization?

A: No.

Q: Have you ever done that?

A: No.

Q: So you have never followed a Sea Organization member that has blown?

A: No.

Now, the following is what Tommy had to say just five minutes later during the deposition:

Q: Okay. So you have been to Texas in either April or May?

A: Yeah.

Q: Okay. And what was the purpose of that visit?

A: I was — went with some friends to see a friend of mine who had left.

Q: Was that individual’s name John Brousseau?

A: Yes.

Q: Isn’t true that you showed up at his motel room at 5:30 in the morning?

A: Yes, it is.

Q: Did he call and ask you to come visit him?

A: He did not.

Q: So when you visited him at 5:30 in the morning, it was unannounced?

A: That is correct.

Q: And you came in a vehicle. And were there three other people with you?

A: Yes, there were.

Q: Had Mr. Brousseau recently blown the Sea Organization?

A: Yes, he had.

Q: How did you know he was in Texas?

A: I was informed by my supervisor.

Q: Did your supervisor tell you to go see him?

A: No, she did not.

Q: So why did you go to Texas to see John?

A: Because he is a very good friend of mine.

Q: But he did not ask you to come visit him?\

A: No, he did not.

Q: And at the time that you were visiting Mr. Brousseau, is it true that there were a number of vehicles that were sent to the home of Marty Rathbun?

A: I don’t know about “sent.” There were some people who went to see him, yes.


Q: Who did send those individuals to Marty Rathbun’s house?

A: I don’t know of anybody that sent them. Nobody sent anybody anywhere.

Q: So no one sent you to see Mr. Brousseau?

A: No.

Q: And were you visiting him as part of your job duties for the church of Scientology?

A: No, I was not.

After Tommy unequivocally swore that he went to Texas to see John Brousseau with three other people at 5:30 in the morning unannnounced and uninvited on his own initiative, not as directed by his supervisor, not having anything to do with his duties in the church, and solely based on his decision as a personal friend to do so, he swore as follows:

Q: How did you get to Texas to visit Mr. Brousseau?

A: On an airplane.

Q: Who paid for your airplane ticket?

A: The church.

Q: Did the church also pay for Angie, Bob and Laurance’s plane tickets?

A: Yes.

Q: And did the church pay for the vehicle that you were driving to go see Mr. Brousseau at the motel?

A: Yes.

Q: What is a blow drill?

A: The only time that I have heard that term was in receiving media inquiries. It is not a term I was familiar with prior to being asked about it by the media. So the definition I have of it is from the media, which is that people leave and there is some sort of drill by which, that goes into play when they leave.

Q: Have you ever participated in what you have an understanding to be a blow drill?

A: I don’t believe I can answer that question, because I just explained that I don’t know what a blow drill is outside of what the media has asked me. So I could not participate in something that I never heard of until I had been asked it by the media.

I am *not* anonymous. I *do* forgive.

That is in link I post, I figured I'd spare people from having to go over to dickhead's blog, just as the person on WWP did, but give them the opportunity to follow the link through if they so chose to.

Dear Chuck,

Please edit your post. There is no need to resort to juvenile castigatory recriminations such as "dickhead".

If you wish to continue posting here, kindly use the much-preferred euphemisms "hubbardhead", "thetahead" or "hoaxhead".

That way, no one gets enturbulated about Marty being a delusional messianic shithead.

I heard they wanted to measure his nose for the record after the deposition but the local home depot didn't have a tape that long.

But I am sure that his mother is proud of him anyway.

I am soooo proud of my son.
He is the Church's top Tech Terminal.
Without him no beings can ever go free!

I am sooo proud of my son.
He is the Church's top lawyer. Without him your son
wouldn't be able to sell his scammy freedom tech.

I am sooo proud of my son.
He is the Church's top spokesman. Without him we wouldn't
know the truth that if your sons have done anything wrong--
he has never heard of them. And that if it is found that they
ever worked for the Church, he can prove that they were
renegade SPs that the Church fired in disgrace.​
