HIGH CRIMES: The Bush Connection to President Reagan’s Shooting

From Russ Baker (WhoWhatWhy): “Imagine my fascination, then, to learn that John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot and nearly killed President Ronald Reagan in 1981 — an attempt which, if successful, would have resulted in then-Vice President George H.W. Bush moving up to the top spot — was none other than a friend of the Bush family. How strange is that? So strange that it literally caused NBC News’s anchor John Chancellor’s eyebrows to arch as he reported the curious connection. The story was broken by the now-defunct Houston Post, and then picked up briefly by the AP and UPI wire services, and some newspapers, plus Newsweek. Then it vanished without a trace or further inquiry or comment in the mainstream media.”

The financial pressure on the Hinckleys disappears, George H.W.
