Anthony Frank Posted July 7, 2004 Share Posted July 7, 2004 Six months after Warren’s cover-up team completed its task, Gerald Ford made it very clear that President Johnson had no aversion to engaging in a “cover up of wrongdoing.” (New York Times, 3-26-65, page 21) In a speech to the National Press Club on March 25, 1965, “Representative Gerald R. Ford said today that Republicans should be given control of two Congressional investigating committees to guard against ‘any cover up of wrongdoing’ by the Democratic Administration.” Ford stated, “The committees on government operations of the House and Senate, which have broad investigating authority, should be under the control of the minority party.” Citing that there was a Democratic President and a Democratic majority in Congress, Ford also said, “It smacks of legalized collusion when we find the suspect and the District Attorney are blood relatives.” For ten months, Ford was on Warren’s Commission, which had broad investigating authority and it essentially investigated a “government operation,” but Earl Warren and his team were, indeed, blood relatives of the suspect. They claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin because both President Johnson and “the suspect” wanted them to. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
