JFK Assassination: New Questions Raised After Secret Service Agent’s Claims

Recently there’s been a lot of speculation over the JFK assassination. There have been  reports on Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s belief that the CIA was involved. He called it a “coup” and praised Tucker Carlson’s coverage of information from a CIA insider on the matter.

Paul Landis has given information that may change a lot of minds. He was a young Secret Service agent assigned to protect Jackie Kennedy, and he was standing on the running board of the follow-up car at the time of the assassination. So he was only about 15 feet away from the historic event when it occurred.

After the shooting, he and fellow agent Clint Hill had to coax Jackie away from JFK’s body so they could remove the mortally wounded president from the car and take him to the hospital. That was when Landis, now 88, says he saw something that has never been revealed before.

As the First Lady was standing up to follow Hill and another agent, Roy Kellerman, who lifted her husband’s body onto a gurney and raced into the hospital—Landis saw and did something that he has kept secret for six decades, he says now. He claims he spotted a bullet resting on the top of the back of the seat. He says he picked it up, put it in his pocket, and brought it into the hospital. Then, upon entering Trauma Room No. 1 (at that stage, he was the only nonmedical person in the room besides Mrs. Kennedy, and both stayed for only a short period), he insists, he placed the bullet on a white cotton blanket on the president’s stretcher.

Landis left the Secret Service not long after the assassination and suffered PTSD. He tried to suppress a lot of his memories, but had a recurring flashback of Kennedy’s head exploding.

Landis said he believed he had done the right thing by securing the bullet and then leaving it for what he thought would be the autopsy. He assumed the Warren Commission had dealt with everything. But after reading a book about the assassination in 2014, he then realized that the “pristine bullet” he had found was believed to have come out of Connally and that he needed to correct the record. He’s written a book, “The Final Witness.”

He wrote:

“James Robenalt, an Ohio-based lawyer and author of several books of history, has intensely researched the assassination and helped Landis work out his memories of that day. He believes Landis’ book will raise new questions about Kennedy’s death.

“If what he says is true, which I tend to believe, it is likely to reopen the question of a second shooter, if not even more,” Robenalt told The Times. “If the bullet we know as the magic or pristine bullet stopped in President Kennedy’s back, it means that the central thesis of the Warren Report, the single-bullet theory, is wrong.”

Which, he added, could mean that Connally was shot by a separate bullet and not by Oswald, whom he believes could not have reloaded fast enough.”
