In a surprising revelation, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says he believes there was more than one gunman who assassinated his uncle and President John F. Kennedy.
The official findings of the Warren Commission, which RFK Jr. calls a "shoddy piece of craftsmanship," say that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he shot the president while he drove through Dallas in an open-air motorcade on November 22, 1963.
Speaking to Charlie Rose in a Dallas event that kicked off the assassination's 50th year anniversary, Kennedy said his father, who was tragically assassinated only five years later in Los Angeles, privately doubted the Warren Commission's account as well.
"The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman," Kennedy said. However, Kennedy Jr. did not go into any details about his own theory on what happened that fateful day.
According to the Daily Mail, Rose asked if he believed his father, the U.S. attorney general at the time of JFK's murder, had felt "some sense of guilt because he thought there might have been a link between his very aggressive efforts against organized crime."
Robert Kennedy Jr. said yes.
According to the environmentalist, who recently lost his ex-wife to suicide, Robert Kennedy Sr. hired private investigators to look into the phone records of Oswald and Jack Ruby (who shockingly killed Oswald only two days later on live TV).
The investigators apparented discovered an "inventory" of mafia leaders the government had been investigating.
