Carlson said Thursday that a source “deeply” familiar with hidden gov’t documents believed the agency was directly involved in the murder of John F. Kennedy.
- Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on his show Thursday that a source with access to the still-hidden CIA documents and “deeply familiar” with what they contained believes the government was directly involved in the JFK assassination.
- “The answer is yes. I believe they were involved. It’s a whole different country from what we thought it was. It’s all fake,” the unnamed source told Carlson.
- Carlson reiterated the information was not revealed by a “conspiracy theorist” but by a direct source close to the matter.
- “It means that within the US government, there are forces wholly beyond democratic control. These forces are more powerful than the elected officials that supposedly oversee them,” Carlson continued. “These forces can affect election outcomes. They can even hide their complicity in the murder of an American president. In other words, they can do pretty much anything they want.”
- The Fox News host reported that under Trump’s administration, former CIA Director Mike Pompeo also refused to release the documents. “Mike Pompeo knew this. We asked Pompeo to join us tonight, and though he rarely turns down a televised interview, he refused to come. We hope he will reconsider,” said Carlson.
TUCKER CARLSON ON GOVERNMENT DISTRUST FOLLOWING THE JFK ASSASSINATION:
“Americans have trusted their government less with every passing year since the killing of john F. Kennedy. maybe this is why,” Carlson said.
- In October 2022, a lawsuit was filed to compel the Biden administration and the National Archives to make available all of the remaining official records on the JFK assassination.
- The action was brought by the Mary Ferrell Foundation in an effort to make public a wealth of information pertaining to Kennedy’s assassination, which has long been the focus of conjecture and rumors.
- In their suit, the group asserted that the government was not properly implementing the ‘President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.’
- The act was passed without opposition for the purpose of making JFK assassination records public by 2017.
- Biden postponed the release of the documents in 2021, saying that about 16,000 documents tied to Kennedy’s death couldn’t be allowed for public viewing, citing the COVID-19 pandemic.
