A renowned Republican strategist and lobbyist has claimed that former president Lyndon B. Johnson set up John F. Kennedy’s assassination, which occurred on November 22, 1963.
Roger Stone, 61, makes the claim in his upcoming book The Man Who Killed Kennedy – The Case Against LBJ which is set to be published in October.
He also writes that Richard Nixon and Johnson had a documented relationship with Jack Ruby, Lee Harvey Oswald’s killer, years before he shot Oswald in the basement of Dallas police headquarters in 1963, reports The Daily Caller.
Stone worked for Richard Nixon’s Committee to Re-elect the President in 1972 and later served in the Nixon administration.
He claims that Johnson, a congressman at the time, instructed Richard Nixon, also a congressman at the time, to hire Ruby onto the House of Representatives payroll in 1947.
Stone claims Johnson ‘micro-managed’ Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade, demanding it pass through Dealy Plaza on the afternoon of November 22, 1963, the infamous day when Oswald shot Kennedy from the overlooking book depository building.
‘Nixon knew Jack Ruby, hired him on House payroll in 1947 at request of … Lyndon Johnson. Newly released documents prove it. in my upcoming book The Man Who Killed Kennedy – The Case Against LBJ Out Oct 1 – order yours today,’ Stone wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
