I am posting here a blockbuster interview by JFK researcher Tom Meros of Dallas County courthouse worker Dee McCarrell which was taken on 5/15/92 at the Dallas County Courthouse.

This blockbuster interview has never been publicly seen before it was posted on the internet tonight 5/31/11.

Tom Meros interview of Dee McCarrell: http://www.youtube.com/rocknrolluniverse . Interview begins at the 3:50 minute mark (3 minutes, 50 seconds).

Dee was about age 20 in 1963 and she was an employee of the Dallas County Courthouse. The blockbuster news she relates is that the FBI had called the Dallas County Courthouse about a week BEFORE the JFK assassination and asked to see documents of Lee Harvey Oswald and any people's names who were associated with Lee Harvey Oswald.

Reminder: this was a week BEFORE the 11/22/63 JFK assassination. Dee McCarrell gave this interview on May 15, 1992, when she was about age 49 or so, approximately 29 years after the JFK assassination. McCarrell at that time was working as a bailiff in the Dallas County Courthouse.

McCarrell in this interview says:

1) The FBI contacted the Dallas County Courthouse one week prior to the JFK assassination and asked for documents pertaining to Lee Harvey Oswald and the names of anyone associated with Lee Harvey Oswald.

2) That Jack Ruby on Thursday, 11/21/63 came to the Dallas Courthouse and waited all day to see the Dallas County Clerk.

3) That the sound of the first shot she heard on 11/22/63, she thought was a car backfire and that she heard 3 more shots that were on top of one another in rapid succession.

4) That she and many others ran towards the Grassy Knoll and the Triple Overpass and that many folks that the shots came from the front.

Thanks for posting a link to the McCarrell interview. Meros testified to the ARRB about this in 1994 and offered to give them a copy of the video tape. Meros also told the ARRB that Jim Leavelle told him he took notes of Oswald's interrogation. Leavelle said the notes of the interrogation were still in his basement - the Warren Commission never asked for them.

Michael, you are welcome and thanks for the Jim Leavelle information. That is blockbuster information in an of itself, especially the government's non-interest in Leavelle's notes of the LHO interrogation. And last I heard, Jim Leavelle was still alive as of 6/1/11.

By the way, Tom Meros is yet another respected JFK researcher in the "LBJ did it" camp. Not that he thinks LBJ did it alone, but certainly a key player in the 1963 Coup d'Etat.

JFK researcher Tom Meros, like me, believes that Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover were primary players in the JFK assassination. Meros has posted a video to YouTube showing just how close LBJ and Hoover were as neighbors in Washington, DC, literally 3 homes down and across the street, about 50 yards away.

LBJ and Hoover lived as neighbors for 18 years from 1943 to 1961 when LBJ moved to another home after being elected Vice President. Hoover would often come over for Sunday brunch at the Johnsons, sometimes with luminary political bachelors such as Sen. Richard Russell (LBJ's mentor in the Senate) and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn (LBJ's mentor in the House). A young Bill Moyers even attended one of these brunches in the mid 1950's.

Sam Rayburn was the one, along with Hoover, who helped Johnson blackmail, strongarm and intimidate his way onto the 1960 Democratic ticket. Johnson and Hoover were the ones who either facilitated the assassination and certainly covered up the murder of John Kennedy.

Sen. Richard Russell was put on the Warren Commisson because he could be manipulated by Johnson into going along with the whitewash. Russell had huge problems with the single bullet theory (he really did not believe what he was signing on the Warren Report), but the bottom line is LBJ indeed was able to control the old man into going along with the farce.

http://www.youtube.com/rocknrolluniverse#p/u Go here to the 2 minute mark of this video and you will see both Hoover's and LBJ's home and how physically close they were.

Hoover had to pass by Johnson's house every day he went to work and came back home. Hoover and Johnson used to walk their dogs together. And Hoover used to brag that he helped to raise the Johnson daughters.

Meros also has 4 other ten minute videos on the JFK assassination on his You Tube page. I recommend them all.

[...] McCarrell at that time was working as a bailiff in the Dallas County Courthouse.

[...]

Interesting that a bailiff would have known that certain documents had been asked for at the courthouse. Was she also a clerk?

If Oswald was indeed an FBI informant, would it be unusual for the FBI to seek information on him?

Or to put it another way, was there anyone whom the FBI did not seek information on?

They even had a file on me. I was interviewed by an FBI agent in 1964 after applying for the Peace Corps.

In 1992 Dee McCarrell was a bailiff in one of the courtrooms. In 1963, she was a young asssistant in one of the offices, probably county clerk's office. She was probably about age 19 or 20 in 1963. By 1992 she had been working in some capacity in the Dallas County Courthouse for almost 30 years.

McCarrell basically says that the FBI called the Dallas County Clerk's office and wanted every scrap of paper that had Oswald's name on it, and any name that was associated with Lee Harvey Oswald. Occurring a week before the JFK assassination, it is in my mind an astounding coincidence especially in light of the FBI's focused effort post JFK assassination to pin it all on Oswald.

They may very well have been setting him up beforehand and wanted to see what they were working with.

Yes, they would have certainly wanted to know what was in the files of other agencies of government, including Dallas courts.

Robert has read numerous responses to his "blockbuster" already,

http://www.amazon.com/forum/jfk%20assassination?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx1VLRED2TYB89B&cdThread=Tx2XR5MRFJ1OH1R&displayType=tagsDetail

...but he brought it here, anyway. Mr. Meros's testimony before the ARRB seemed more of a tourist, than from a researcher.

Why would Meros, an attorney, present his own ARRB testimony, hearsay in its entirety, when he had such rock solid witnesses as

his sources?

Two Dallas natives reveal their long undisclosed, most sensitive, JFK assassination secrets, to a tourist, a stranger, from Ohio. Why? Because no one

had asked them, before.
