Hot How The Russians Helped JFK Win HIS Election

How The Russians Helped John F Kennedy Win His Election

James Wilson, Irish Central, August 2017.

Russian interference in America’s elections is nothing new. In the 1960 election Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev strongly supported Democratic candidate John F. Kennedy and the Massachusetts Senator narrowly prevailed.

The extent to which the Soviets managed to intervene in that election remains unverifiable: but former Soviet agents, Constantine Pleshakov and Vladislav Zubok, write in their book;

“Inside the Kremlin's Cold War: From Stalin to Khrushchev,”...

A KGB agent, according to Feklisov, even tried to contact Robert Kennedy, but met a polite rebuff.

Despite the campaign’s snub, Khrushchev felt his spies had done enough that he even publicly claimed to have help Kennedy eke out his marginal victory.

Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

The authors note that;

“When Kennedy won the presidential election on 4 November, Khrushchev was delighted, and even joked that this was a present to him on the anniversary of the great October Socialist Revolution.

Later, when Khrushchev met Kennedy in Vienna, he did not hesitate to boast that he had helped the Democrat win an extremely narrow race with Nixon.”

Flushed With The Conquest of His Foe Nixon...

Khrushchev refused to allow the release of two US airmen until Kennedy had been inaugurated – thus stringing along the Eisenhower-Nixon White House until the bitter end and allowing the new Administration to bank an easy diplomatic win....
