Paul Bleau Chokes, Part 7

Updated: Mar 4

Paul Bleau's first chokehold is that "the official record impeaches the Warren Commission." He believes that: (page 38 in the Kindle edition of his book Chokeholds)

U.S. investigations into the assassination, statements made by investigation insiders and foreign government conclusions about the assassination prove that there is a strong consensus by the independent investigative authorities that there was a conspiracy in the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

Bleau's chapter then lists out a variety of statements that seemingly prove conspiracy. Of course, Bleau doesn't tell readers the full truth about these viewpoints.

Bleau Assertion: (page 41 in the Kindle edition of Chokeholds)

In 1988, he told author Gary Fannin that "Oswald would never have been found guilty of killing Tippit or JFK at the time of his death."

What Bleau Doesn't Tell You

Fannin claims that Leavelle told him that, at the time of Oswald's murder that "we did not have enough proof to find Oswald guilty in a court of law." I don't know if this is what Leavelle really said. It might be true that on November 24th, Leavelle did not think they had all the evidence.

Bleau won't quote what Jim Leavelle told author Larry Sneed: (page 408 in No More Silence)

But, over the years, I've heard all the stories, and I haven't seen or read anything that has caused me to change my opinion that Oswald acted alone, as did Jack Ruby.
We had convicted many in Dallas on far less evidence than what we had on Oswald.
