Oh Brother. You will see this kind of stuff all over before November.
Legendary Republican operative Roger Stone claims in his new book that Lyndon Johnson arranged John F. Kennedy’s assassination, and that Richard Nixon and Johnson had a documented relationship with Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby, years before Ruby shot Oswald in the basement of Dallas police headquarters in 1963.
Stone, who worked for Richard Nixon’s Committee to Re-elect the President in 1972 and later served in the Nixon administration, claims in his forthcoming book that Johnson, then a congressman, instructed Richard Nixon, then a congressman, to hire Ruby on the House of Representatives payroll in 1947.
Stone, a flamboyant Libertarian who enjoys posting quotes about himself, has been pushing this idea for a while. A quick search shows this on his “Stone Zone” site back in 2010 where he says: “We don’t know who did murder Kennedy. We have pretty well established it was not Lee Harvey Oswald. We have also established that it certainly was not Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone.”
The new book will be out in October, right before the 50th anniversary of the assassination. Wonder if it will have evidence. Wonder if it will be speculation or supported by sources? Wonder if it will just be hearsay? Nah, can’t say I really do wonder. There’s got to be a lot more to get me interesting than a book with a sensational story for sale.
