Tucker Carlson broke bombshell news on Thursday regarding long-held rumors and theories about CIA involvement in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Carlson noted that under the Trump administration, “under intense pressure from CIA Director Mike Pompeo, withheld, in the end, thousands of pages of CIA documents.”
“Today, this afternoon, the Biden administration did exactly the same thing,” Carlson said. “That would be thousands of pages of documents after nearly 60 years, after the death of every single person involved.”
“But we still can’t see them,” Carlson said. “Clearly, it’s not to protect any person. They’re all dead. It’s to protect an institution. But why?”
Carlson continued, “Well, today we decided to find out. We spoke to someone who had access to these still hidden CIA documents, a person who was deeply familiar with what they contained. We asked this person directly, “Did the CIA have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy, an American President?”
Today we spoke to someone who had access to the still-hidden JFK files, and is deeply familiar with their contents. We asked this person directly: did the CIA have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy?

“And here’s the reply we received verbatim. Quote, ‘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.'”
“It’s hard to imagine a more jarring response than that,” Carlson added. “Again, this is not a ‘conspiracy theorist’ that we spoke to. Not even close. This is someone with direct knowledge of the information that once again is being withheld from the American public.”
“And the answer we received was unequivocal,” Carlson said. “Yes, the CIA was involved in the assassination of the president. Now, some people will not be surprised to hear that they suspected it all along. But no matter how you feel about it or what you thought about the Kennedy assassination, pause to consider what this means.”
“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. These forces can affect election outcomes. They can even hide their complicity in the murder of an American president.”
Carlson concluded, “In other words, they can do pretty much anything they want. They constitute a government within a government mocking, by their very existence, the idea of democracy. As cynical as we have become after 30 years of watching government officials ignore the voters who employ them, we were shocked to learn this. It’s not acceptable.”
