How the Obama administration could have prevented the JFK assassination
The Obama administration has admitted to the Kennedy assassination and other high-profile assassinations but denied a cover-up.
The revelations, outlined in a secret court report obtained by Fox News, shed new light on the FBI’s role in the Kennedy case.
The report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was based on the testimony of former FBI director Louis Freeh, who testified in front of a grand jury in Boston in late August.
Freeh testified that he and FBI agent Mark Felt, who oversaw the investigation into the Kennedy murder, lied to Congress about a “cover-up” of the assassination.
The court document was made public Wednesday and described how the Obama Justice Department was aware of the cover-ups but did nothing to prevent them.
The report states the FBI had the “complete ability” to investigate and gather information on both the assassination and the conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy.
The president, the FBI and Freeh all deny the charges and argue that the investigation was not tainted by the coverup.
Freehan told the grand jury that Mueller’s report was not a “fair assessment of what the FBI knew and when it knew it.”
“Mueller’s report is an unqualified and irresponsible partisan attack,” said Freeh in a statement to Fox News.
“The truth is that the FBI did not know of the conspiracy and did not obstruct the investigation, as the president and Felt have said.”
A Justice Department spokesperson declined to comment.
