JFK Conspiracy Fact #46: George H.W. Bush Has A Lot To Answer For

One of the suspects in any honest investigation of JFK’s murder should be George H.W. Bush.  Bush had many tangential and direct ties to the events in Dallas on November 22, 1963.  Most suspiciously, Bush and accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald had a common friend–George DeMohrenschildt.  DeMohrenschildt, a covert CIA agent and an international oil geologist, was Lee Harvey Oswald’s “mentor” in Dallas.  He introduced Oswald to the White Russian community in Dallas, including Ruth Paine who secured Oswald a job in the Texas School Book Depository.
DeMohrenschildt was also well acquainted with the Bush family.  DeMohrenschildt’s nephew, Eddie Hooker, had been George H.W. Bush’s prep school roommate at Phillips Academy in Massachusetts.  DeMohrenschildt and Hooker went into the oil business in West Texas in the 1950s, the same time that Bush was working there as a Dresser Industries employee.
After JFK’s murder, Bush, for obvious reasons, claims to have barely known DeMohrenschildt, but DeMohrenschildt did not reciprocate these feelings.  When he was being hounded about his associations with Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, DeMohrenschildt wrote a letter to his old pal Bush, who just happened to be head of the CIA at the time.  The letter reeks of desperation.  DeMohrenschildt claimed his phones were bugged and he was being followed by “vigilantes.”  “Either the FBI is involved in this or they do not want to accept my complaints; I tried to write stupidly and unsuccessfully about Lee Harvey Oswald,” writes DeMohrenschildt.  At the time, he knew he was in trouble because he was threatening to expose what he knew about JFK’s assassination.
Just a few months later DeMohrenschildt was found shot to death on the very day he was scheduled to be interviewed by the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1977.  The death was ruled a “suicide by shotgun blast.”  Found in DeMohrenschildt’s belongings was the address and phone number of “Bush, George H.W., 1412 W. Ohio also Zapata Petroleum, Midland, Texas.”  I guess Bush answered DeMohrenschildt’s letter after all.
