Robert Kennedy Jr. repeats claim CIA assassinated JFK, vows to 'break up' the Central Intelligence Agency

Robert Kennedy Jr. repeated the claim that the Central Intelligence Agency assassinated President John F. Kennedy — his uncle. The Democratic presidential candidate also vowed to "break up" the CIA if he is elected.

Kennedy is the son of Robert Kennedy — who was murdered during his own presidential campaign on June 5, 1968. Kennedy recalled that his father suspected that the CIA was behind the JFK assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

"It was my father’s first instinct that the agency had killed his brother," Kennedy said of the CIA during an appearance on "Hannity."

Kennedy said that his father, former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, contacted a CIA desk officer.

Robert F. Kennedy allegedly asked the CIA agent, "Did your people do this?"

"His next call was to [Enrique Ruiz-Williams], who was one of the Cuban Bay of Pigs leaders who had remained very, very close to our family and to my father," Kennedy added. "My father asked him the same question."

Kennedy, 69, said his father then called John McCone, then head of the CIA.

He said his father invited McCone to the family's house, “When I came home [from] Sidwell Friends School, my father was walking in the yard with John McCone, and my father was posing the same question to him, 'Was it our people who did this to my brother?'"

Kennedy noted of JFK's assassination, "Congress found that it was a plot. It was a conspiracy, [and] there were multiple people involved."

Kennedy told host Sean Hannity about the conspiracy theory, "There's millions of pages of documents — of CIA documents, of transcripts of recorded conversations from the Cuban embassy in Mexico City, from — it's hard to summarize the evidence."

"The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder and in the cover-up," Kennedy said of JFK's assassination during an interview with John Catsimatidis on his WABC 770 AM show "Cats Roundtable." "I think it's beyond a reasonable doubt at this point."

During an interview with UnHerd, Kennedy was asked about JFK's alleged quote that he wanted "to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds," following the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961.

Kennedy replied, "I think the CIA needs to be reorganized. Most of the people who work at the CIA are patriotic Americans. They’re very good public servants, and we need them to function. But I think we really need to separate the espionage functions of that agency and the Plans Division, the division that actually does dirty tricks, that kills people, that makes wars, that involves itself in actions."

"The CIA has been involved in coup d’etats and attempted coup d’etats in about a third of the countries in the world, most of them democracies," Kennedy alleged. "So if our national policy as a country is to promote democracy, the CIA’s policy has been the opposite. It has been at odds with the United States."

"You overthrow a government in Iraq, and what happens: you create Isis. You then get involved in Syria, from Isis, and you drive 2 million refugees into Europe, which destabilizes democracy all over Europe and basically causes Brexit," he explained. "That’s the outcome of what the CIA considers a successful operation to depose Saddam Hussein. Is it really successful? I don’t think so. We have a 60-year war with Iran, and that war began when the CIA overthrew the first democratically elected government in the 6,000-year history of Persia. And we are still living with the blowback from that operation."

Kennedy declared, "And there’s no accountability, and these agencies need to be accountable, and I would break up the CIA in a way that would make them accountable."
