That&rsquo;s apparently the thinking of 80-year-old journalist Bob Schieffer on Friday. Appearing on <em>CBS This Morning</em> to bash Donald Trump as like &ldquo;something out of a <em>Godfather</em> movie,&rdquo; he first connected the President&rsquo;s actions in the Russia investigation to the murder of JFK. Schieffer bewildered his audience by suggesting, &ldquo;There are many parallels to Watergate. But I have to tell you, I think all the way back to the Kennedy assassination, to draw parallels.&rdquo;&nbsp; The veteran journalist stretched, &ldquo;I was there, as you know. I have always felt that if Lee Harvey Oswald had been put on trial, a lot of these conspiracy theories that are still circulating today would have been put at rest then.&rdquo;</p>
