Jackie O Tapes Reportedly Allege She Suspected LBJ Involved in JFK Assassination

Soon-to-be-released tapes of Jackie Onassis will reveal that she believed then-Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was involved in the plot to murder her husband, John F. Kennedy, reports The Daily Mail.

The former first lady recorded the tapes with prominent historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. just months after the president’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963. She requested that the tapes not be released until 50 years after the assassination in an attempt, as some reports believe, to protect her family from her shocking assertions.

Mrs. Kennedy, who later married Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, died 17 years ago from cancer age 64.

Her daughter, Caroline Kennedy, has agreed to release the recordings early from a vault at the Kennedy Library in Boston. The move is believed to be in exchange for ABC’s cancellation of its multimillion dollar-drama series about the family, starring Katie Holmes as Jackie, according to the Daily Mail.

The most shocking revelation in the tape is Onassis’ reported assertion that LBJ  teamed up with Texas business tycoons and gunman Lee Harvey Oswald to orchestrate the Kennedy assassination.

Besides implicating her husband’s successor in the Dallas shooting, the tapes also reportedly include Onassis’ alleged affairs with Hollywood star William Holden and Fiat founder Gianni Agnelli. Those affairs are said to have been retaliations for her JFK’s own sexual exploits.

Although the Daily Mail quotes ABC execs as saying the tapes are “explosive,” a spokesman for ABC said reports on the content are wrong. “The actual content of the tapes provide unique and important insight into our recent past from one of the most fascinating and influential first ladies in American history,” he said.

The tapes are expected to be featured in an ABC special in September.
