Marina Oswald gave George an autographed photograph of Lee holding a rifle, with the inscription For George. Lee Harvey Oswald. Hunter of Fascists, Ha. Ha. ” When he heard that someone tried to kill General Walker, he assumed it had been Oswald and went to their house to see if Oswald had disposed of the rifle. Marina Oswald told the Warren Commission that she heard him rush up the Oswald’s stairs saying: "Lee, how did you miss General Walker? Oswald was said to have attempted to kill General Edwin Walker, a known rightist.
De Mohrenschildt was afraid of becoming implicated. In Haiti, George worked for Clint Murchison and was also a business partner of Mohammed al Fayed and Clamar J. Charles. A man who knew him in Haiti said “I could never figure out what he did” and just assumed he was an intelligence agent.
George said Oswald was a patsy. In 1969, gun-runner Lauren Hall told De Mohrenschildt that he was offered $50,000 to participate in the assassination. In the same year, George told a friend he thought H.L. Hunt was behind the assassination and added that he was the link between Hunt and Oswald. Haroldson L. Hunt had run paramilitary operations before, using CIA men. His assistants heard him say he would like to see Kennedy shot and that the country would be better off without JFK.
Before Kennedy’s inauguration, Hunt’s “Facts Forum” was putting out religious appeals as to why Kennedy should not be permitted to enter the White House. The program had previously attacked Jews and supported Joseph McCarthy. On the eve of the assassination, Hunts various outlets were spewing hateful material about the president. He thought Kennedy was weak on communism and knew Kennedy wanted to tax oil wealth, almost like other forms of wealth. He also viewed democracy as the devil’s work. One of his sons helped pay for a large Dallas newspaper ad attacking Kennedy that prompted the president to say the were entering “nut country.” Some of Hunt’s literature was found in Ruby’s pocket after he shot Oswald.
After the assassination, the FBI briefly provided agents to protect Hunt while he and General Edwin Walker repaired to a Hunt hide-away in Mexico. Hunt was an admirer of LBJ and had strong ties to the Cuban exile community. Hunt had connections with the Chicago mob, and Murchison had a joint business venture with Louisiana mobster Carlos Marcello.Mafia messenger Eugene Hale Brading visited H.L. Hunt’s office on the morning of November 21. He was arrested in Dealey Plaza on November 22 and later released. John Curington, Hunt’s former chief aid, said Ruby also visited Hunt on the 21st.and thatr Marina Oswald met with Hunt on the 20th. On the 23rd, Hunt instructed Curington to look into the kind of security the police had for Oswald.
In 1975, Exhumation of Lee Harvey Oswald by English lawyer Michael Eddowes appeared. It claimed that a Soviet double for Lee Harvey Oswald killed John F. Kennedy. Some investigative writers claim to have establoished that H.L. Hunt financed the book. Hunt was known for his extreme political views and great wealth, taking in about $30,000,000 a year. He spent large sums on political propaganda, and John F. Kennedy was concerned that men like him were using largely tax sheltered money for political purposes. Kennedy produced a plan to raise more revenue by changing tax treatment accorded the oil and gas industry.
In his last years, De Mohrenschildt became fearful that he was being watched and was in trouble with the CIA and FBI. On September 7, 1976, he sent a handwritten note to his old friend George H.W. Bush, Director of the CIA:
"I have been acting like a damn fool.....I tried to write, stupidly and unsuccessfully about Lee H. Oswald and must have angered a lot of people. But to punish an elderly man like myself and my highly nervous and sick wife is really too much. Could you do something to remove this net [of surveillance] around us?"
Soon thereafter, in the same month, he taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital for “mental problems” and was given nine electric shock treatments by Dr. Deloach, first cousin to Cartha D. "Deke" DeLoach , an assistant director of the FBI.
Later that year, he and long-time friend and Dutch investigative journalist Willem Oltmans went to the campus of Bishop College in Dallas. George told Dutch TV journalist that he was afraid of going to jail because he was responsible for guiding the behavior of Oswald; he “set it up.” De Mohrenschildt wanted to get out of the country and that “the interests” –meaning the FBI and CIA were out to get him. He added that so was the “Jewish mafia” because they considered him pro-Nazi.
