Roger Stone claims to have played a role in President Trump's tentative decision to allow the release of the classified files related to former President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963, but he dismisses the notion that he levied a "heavy hand" in steering the commander in chief in any one direction.
Stone has also pushed the conspiracy theory that Sen. Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, is tied to Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, which Cruz and his family have vehemently denied.
Stone tweeted at the Washington Examiner that "there is substantial evidence connecting Ted Cruz's sleazeball father and Oswald," and referred Judyth Vary Baker, who claims to have been Oswald's girlfriend.
The Cruz-Kennedy assassination connection was fueled during the 2016 campaign by a National Enquirer report that claimed Rafael Cruz was photographed with Oswald before Kennedy's killing.
