Shocking New Tape Reveals Nixon Threatened To Reveal the CIA’s Involvement in JFK Murder

Nixon threatened to expose CIA's involvement with JFK murder - new tape reveals

A bombshell Nixon Watergate-era tape shows Richard Nixon warning CIA Director Richard Helms that he knows of CIA involvement in the murder of John F. Kennedy shortly before Nixon was outed from office.

This new tape depicts Nixon increasingly besieged by Watergate but unaware that at least four of the Watergate burglars were still secretly on the CIA payroll at the time of the break-in, and that the CIA had infiltrated the burglary team.

Recently declassified documents reveal that Watergate Special Prosecutor Nick Akerman was aware of both the CIA’s advance knowledge and involvement in the break-in – but kept quiet about it at the time.

Roger Stone reports: Senator Howard Baker, the Republican Leader on the Senate Watergate Committee and his counsel Fred Thompson himself, a future U.S. Senator from Tennessee, like Baker, stumbled on the CIA’s deep advanced knowledge and direct involvement in the Watergate break-in. Baker and Thompson both knew that at least four of the Watergate burglars were on the CIA payroll at the time of the break-in and that through CREEP Security Director James McCord, had infiltrated the burglary team. Senate Watergate Committee Chairman Sam Ervin stoutly refused to allow Baker and the Committee Republicans including Edward J. Gurney of Florida the right to publish a Minority Report which noted this stunning information regarding the CIA.

Nixon deeply distrusted the CIA because he knew that President Eisenhower had ordered the agency to give top secret briefings to both Nixon and Kennedy after both were the certain nominees of their parties. Nixon was sore that Kennedy utilized the information in their debates, attacking Nixon for being “soft” on communist Cuba, knowing full well that Nixon had chaired a working group as Vice President overseeing preparations for the “Bay of Pigs” invasion. Nixon, of course, could not reveal this upcoming attempt to topple Castro in the details.

White House Domestic Policy Chief John Ehrlichman wrote that when he served as the White House Legal Counsel, Nixon ordered him to request that the CIA hand over all documents pertaining to John Kennedy’s murder. Nixon was furious when Richard Helms, the CIA Director, refused his presidential order to hand them over.

This stunning new Watergate-era tape captures an increasingly besieged Nixon desperately seeking to mobilize the CIA in his defense by threatening to expose their greatest secrets. Nixon also knew that Congressman Gerald Ford, as a member of the Warren Commission, had, at the explicit direction of J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI Director, altered the official autopsy diagram for President John F. Kennedy; moving the marking from a bullet in his upper back to his neck in order to accommodate the single-bullet theory and to conceal the fact that Kennedy had been hit with more than the reported three shots.

Nixon was acutely aware of Ford’s act of treachery in concealing the truth about Kennedy’s murder and the CIA’s involvement in it. White House Chief of Staff General Alexander Haig told me in an interview that “Nixon had Ford by the balls.” The five-star General said, “Nixon had me tell Ford that is he (Nixon) was going down, he was taking everybody with him.”


  1. The Assassination chain of command were the World’s Financiers at the top running through the CIA at the operational level down to the political level as represented by J.Edgar Hoover’s FBI and the Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, who put together conspirators on the local level like the Mayor of Dallas and the Police Chief of Dallas to the Texas oil men like H.L. Hunt who paid the 8 assassins waiting for President Kennedy $50,0000 apiece.

  2. Oh look, something I said 18 years ago becomes a thing. I think Michael Collins Piper said it was the small hats behind all of it. Or someday else, another podcast down the memory hole.

  3. Remember, nothing is what it seems.
    And morons believe nazi propagandas That is as it seems. There were no communists That was a lie There were no socialists They were the other good or bad cop depending on your stupidity to believe manipulations.
    There are no good guys. Well, a time few.
    The vast majority of humanity are corrupt dishonest criminals unfit to. Raise children and deserving “Nothing better than to be enslaved” That’s the truth And the stupid ignorant gullible naive hypocrites don’t even know it.

  4. And NOW you know how the “scandal” that saw him resign got started.
    BTW he had more integrity than most presidents before or since.
