You are listening to some of the air traffic conversations which took place throughout the afternoon of November 22, 1963. The White House Situation Room, code-named Crown, is providing updated information from the press ticker to the president's air crew in Dallas and to the crew of the plane carrying Secretary of State Dean Rusk. (Rusk's plane here is called "Wayside.") The code name "Volunteer" belongs to Lyndon Johnson.
March 2, 1967: The voice speaking is Johnson’s, the caller was Connally, who phoned regarding the Jim Garrison investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson notes one of Jimmy Hoffa’s lawyers went to one of their “mutual friends” to discuss the Garrison case; warning that Hoffa “would tell all the story” about the JFK assassination after November of ’67. Johnson’s own lawyer admitted, and detailed how Johnson was responsible for the assassination. This, in addition to several damning White House tapes and other powerful evidence available to the public.
