On the Sunday Special episode of Human Events Daily, host Jack Posobiec spoke with political consultant and Trump ally Roger Stone about President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination in Dallas, Texas. Stone is the author of the book The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ published in 2013.
Posobiec read Stone's book while in the service and said, "I read this thing cover to cover, while sitting on a Navy ship, and realizing that there's so much that it wasn't enough for Oliver Stone to fit it all in the movie. So I guess we needed Roger Stone to come out and give us the rest."
In 1991, Oliver Stone made an award-winning film JFK that dove into the conspiracy theories behind the JFK assassination. The movie's central thesis was that the Warren Commission, which stated that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing JFK, was incorrect. Rather it was a conspiracy that originated within government agencies and had the approval of Lyndon Baines Johnson.
"Oliver Stone read my book," Stone explained. "He actually sent me a note, which he said, had he known a lot of the things that I brought to the fore in my book, he would have included them in his movie."
Stone said the director "didn't really understand the central role that Lyndon Johnson played in the murder of John F. Kennedy."
"I make a compelling argument using eyewitness evidence, fingerprint evidence, deep Texas politics, and a huge amount of what I admit to you is circumstantial, but I think compelling evidence that Lyndon Baines Johnson is the man who had the motive means an opportunity to kill John F. Kennedy," Stone added.
Stone then explained that Johnson's motive was related to two unrelated scandals he was involved in, one with Bobby Baker and another with Billie Sol Estes. According to Stone, Bobby Baker, who was a "sergeant of the US Senate'' and "Lyndon Johnson's chief bag man," was in trouble over corruption regarding Senate appropriations, problems that could point back to Johnson.
"Billie Sol Estes was a flamboyant Texas dealmaker. Wheeler Dealer who would ultimately go to prison for his crimes," Stone said. According to Stone, Johnson was a silent partner of Estes' and stood to benefit via kickbacks from "federal green storage contracts from which Sol Estes had made millions."
Posobiec asked Stone about his motivation for writing the book.
"I had a conversation when I was working for former President Richard Nixon," Stone replied.
He said the two men were having "a couple of cocktails" and Stone "asked him, point blank, who killed John F. Kennedy?"
Nixon shuttered and told Stone, "Let me put it this way; Lyndon and I both wanted to be president. The difference was I wasn't willing to kill for it."
