Bolden decided to travel to Washington where he telephoned Warren Commission Counsel J. Lee Rankin . Bolden was arrested and taken back to Chicago where he was charged with discussing a bribe with two known counterfeiters.

As Wofford points out, after the Bay of Pigs: “John and Robert Kennedy committed themselves to counter-insurgency, covert action, and increased military effort as the way to counteract the Cuban defeat and to win in Vietnam.”
