Tucker Carlson, the former Fox News host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, just explained the reason why the administration of President Joe Biden just reclassified documents concerning the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.
According to Carlson, it is because the documents "implicate not individuals, but institutions."
Carlson made the remark during a recent interview that he did with actor and podcast host Russell Brand.
The two touched upon a wide range of topics in an interview that was roughly an hour and a half long.
Toward the end of the interview, this question was put to Carlson: "With all these conspiracy theories coming out as true, is there anything that is still covered up that you think holds weight?"
"Yeah!" Carlson exclaimed.
Biden’s just reclassified the Kennedy documents 60 years after his assassination. No one, even peripherally involved is still alive. So, what could possibly be [the reason?]. The sources and methods that we are supposedly showing the world by declassifying these are so outdated they're irrelevant. They were using disappearing ink in 1963. So, why in the world would we be continuing to hide the truth about the Kennedy assassination 60 years later?
Carlson proceeded to answer his own question, saying, in fact, that "the answer is obvious."
Of course, the answer is obvious: Because it implicates not individuals, but institutions, and reveals them as complicit in a murder, and in the overthrow of the U.S. government. The U.S. government is complicit in the overthrow of the U.S. government. And, that's the truth. I know that for a fact because I interviewed someone who saw the documents.
During his presidency, former President Donald Trump released some 2,800 documents related to the Kennedy assassination.
President Joe Biden, during his presidency, has released three additional batches of these documents, one in 2021, one in 2022, and another in 2023. Yet, additional documents related to the assassination remain classified - as Carlson said, Biden just recently reclassified them.
It certainly does make one wonder what is actually going on here.
Carlson, in the interview, went on to take issue with the modern-day practice of classifying documents in America.
The bottom line is: unless there is a compelling reason that relates to imminent physical security of citizens, we should never hide the truth from the population in a Democracy, period. Becase that is incompatiable with Democracy. Secrecy is incompatible with democracy. How can I — I’m running the government but you can’t tell me what the government’s doing? That’s — that’s not democracy, that’s — it’s something else and don’t insult me by calling it a democracy because it’s very much not.
