FILE - In this March 19, 1987 file photo, President Ronald Reagan taps his forehead at the White House while responding to a reporter's question during a news conference at which he said he never deliberately lied to the public, despite admitting to a misstatement about Israeli involvement in the Iran-Contra affair. In a 1986 radio address admitting to missteps in the Iran-Contra scandal, the president famously said "mistakes were made" - a passive acknowledgement of wrongdoing that didn't directly implicate anyone.

FILE - This Dec. 17, 1981 file photo shows President Ronald Reagan pointing to a reporter for the next question during his news conference in the East Room at the White House in Washington. About the only thing former Reagan doesn’t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway. Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev. is pushing a bill that would name a part of Frenchman Mountain, located just east of Las Vegas, after the nation’s 40th president. The House Committee on Natural Resources approved Heck’s bill on Wednesday by voice vote, but not before some Democrats on the committee had some fun with the issue. (AP Photo, File)

FILE - In this Jan. 9, 1986, file photo, President Ronald Reagan hugs Elizabeth Brinton, 14, of Falls Church, Va., during a meeting at the White House in Washington. Brinton who has held a Girl Scout cookie sales record for decades says she has no problem giving up her cookie crown to an Oklahoma girl who broke her record. Brinton set the one year sales record of 18,000 boxes as a teenager in the 1980s. She sold outside Metro stations in the Washington area and in 1986 even sold cookies to Reagan. Now a mother of two living in Alabama, Brinton says the new cookie queen, Katie Francis of Oklahoma City, called her to ask for advice. (AP Photo/Charles Tasnadi, File)
