    My two cent's worth. If we were saying it is because of A, B or C, then it would be a conspiracy discussion. This is more a discussion on the potential causes of an actual event.
    Its a helluva lot more serious than that I'm afraid.

    It would shake the foundation of our nation to its knees.

    The entire belief in our government would be questioned.

    People would doubt every decision our government has made since then and the fallout would be tremendous, up to and including various politicians today.

    You think this investigation against Trump is serious, it would be nothing compared to what would happen if the truth was made public about JFK.

    Only in the uneducated Trump con world. Most others know that JFK was deeply flawed. And most who were politicians then are dead or untouchable now.

    Oh, that's hard to prove. It's more about what I think. This really belongs under conspiracy. I'll give it a crack. The Kennedy's were involved in politics, were filthy rich, and very influential. With what we know about Hoover, into "everybody who is some- bodies" business, they could have been obvious targets. The best president is one you can manipulate. Hoover was all about accumulating power. He probably spied on all the Kennedy's and found boat loads embarrassing information.

    You don't think a rogue Hoover might have surveilled the Kennedy's? There not releasing the files, not because of national security since there is very little worth keeping secret fiftyfive years later, but because they want to preserve the perception of the presidency itself. Why would they reveal what would be so unbelievably damning to their reputation? The powers that be agree that it should be kept secret. And so it is.

    Welcome back Hollywood. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
