A candidate for the Democratic Party’s 2024 presidential nomination claimed the Central Intelligence Agency was involved with John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., told Fox News personality Sean Hannity evidence implicates the spy agency in his uncle’s November 22, 1963 murder.
Mr. Kennedy added his father, Robert F. Kennedy’s immediately questioned if the CIA was involved in his brother’s assassination.
Democratic presidential primary candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., doubled down on his insistence the CIA was involved in the assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, telling Fox News’ Sean Hannity it is a “60-year cover-up.”
Kennedy – the son of Bobby Kennedy, who was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in 1968 – claimed on “Hannity” Monday there is strong evidence the Central Intelligence Agency had a role in a plot that led to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination at the hands of Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963.
“There’s millions of pages of documents; CIA documents, of transcripts, of recorded conversations from the Cuban embassy in Mexico City — it’s hard to summarize the evidence,” he said.
Kennedy said one of the Warren Commission’s leaders was ex-CIA Director Allen Dulles – brother of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles – who was notably fired by JFK.
“[Dulles] insinuated himself onto the Warren Commission and essentially ran the Warren Commission and kept this evidence from the Warren Commissioners. Either way, when Congress, 10 years later, investigated the crime with much more evidence than the Warren Commission had at its disposal,” Kennedy claimed.. “Congress found that, yeah, it was a plot. It was a conspiracy [and] there were multiple people involved.”
“And most of the people in that investigation believe that it was the CIA that was behind it – because the evidence was overwhelming to them.”
RFK Jr. recalled being in the White House East Room while his uncle’s body was lying in wake. He was with his father, Bobby, and aunt Jacqueline, and his mother Ethel.
President Lyndon Johnson came in to inform the group that Jack Ruby had just killed Oswald.
“I said to my mom at that point … why did [Ruby] kill [Oswald]? Did he love our family? – You know that is a lingering question – what was Jack Ruby doing there?” he recalled.
Kennedy said his father, the attorney general, had investigated Ruby and discovered alleged mob ties, including a mob leader he claimed was “recruited by the CIA in the [Fidel] Castro murder plot – so they were all working together in cahoots with the CIA.”
He also claimed his father called a CIA desk officer in Langley, Va., the day JFK was shot, and asked ,”Did your people do this?” Bobby Kennedy also called then-CIA Director John McCone and posed same question.
“It was my father’s first instinct that the agency had killed his brother,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said
The CIA has repeatedly denied it was involved in any way in JFK’s assassination.
