LBJ to Gerald Ford - "CIA is your shop"

What did LBJ mean when he said the CIA was Gerald Fords "shop" in appointing him to the Warren Commission panel?

A rather intriguing & interesting question there, Mr. Down, certainly worth a much closer examination. To that end, I'll delve into researching Mr. Ford's Congressional Committees prior to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to determine IF there was any relationship--remote or otherwise--with procuring funds and/or running interference for the Agency from his early years in Congress (late 1940's--1963).

Given that he is the only person in American history to serve as both a non-elected vice-president & president, we have to wonder if he was rewarded with those positions for his complicity in aiding in a cover-up (amazing what some people will do for 30 pieces of silver). Not sure if Mr. Ford falls into that category or not. At least Senator Frank Church (RIP), the namesake of the Church-Committee made a good faith effort to hold the Agency accountable for their misdeeds; however, with the non-elected Ford in a position of major influence we are left to wonder if his "role" once again was to continue his interference from his days of "service" on the Warren Commission...

Again, let me be clear, for clarity sake, Mr. Ford is innocent until proven otherwise guilty, but what I'd give to know what he was thinking precisely at the moment he avoids making eye-contact with the camera-lenses in the video-image you shared, while looking sideways over towards Mr. Dulles?  Was Allen Welsh Dulles his puppet-master?

Brief excerpt, courtesy of the Gerald Ford Foundation, chronicling his years in Congress...

1955-56: Ford continues to serve on the Appropriations Committee in the House, and in 1956 is appointed to the Intelligence Subcommittee, which oversees the CIA’s budget. He serves on this subcommittee for ten years and learns of programs such as U-2 and Bay of Pigs.

A full decade is certainly enough time to ensure a blank-check is always available to the Agency, while "overseeing" their budget. Did Mr. Ford forge a bond with Allen Welsh Dulles over that ten year period & beyond?

Gerald ' Let's just move the back bullet entrance up to the base of the neck ' Ford ! Oh my , it looks like we have a Magic Bullet ' ! Ford was said to have told J. Edgar Hoover everything that was being talked about at the Warren Commission meetings . If the ' We did it CIA had been pushed by the FBI for the truth ( which was not going to happen ) due to the fact that LBJ and Hoover were ' So Called Friends ' and GHW Bush was spinning his top in the CIA , so both agencies had to eat a little crow while being complicit with each other . Those who believe LH Oswald was a lone assassin of JFK and Tippit are drinking very cheap wine !

Was Gerald Ford the " Mole " who kept J. Edgar Hoover on top of what the Warren Commission was talking about . Who told Ford that it would be " OK " to move the back wound up so the " Lone Bullet theory would line up a little better ( which it didn't ) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
