Asserting that the Central Intelligence Agency was responsible for the death of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. backed up his assertion on Monday night.

On "Hannity" on Fox News, the Democratic presidential contender spoke about the 1963 assassination of the 35th president.

"There's millions of pages of documents — of, uh, CIA documents, of, uh, transcripts, of recorded conversations from, uh, the Cuban embassy in, in Mexico City, from — it's hard to summarize the evidence," Kennedy, 69, told host Sean Hannity.

"There are confessions of people who are directly involved in the plot, who were involved in the planning of the plot, uh, who were peripherals to the plot, uh, there's a 60-year cover-up," he continued.

The late senator and attorney general's son continued by saying that he thought the Warren Commission, which President Lyndon Johnson appointed to look into the assassination, was covering something up, New York Post reported.

He mentioned that former CIA Director Allen Dulles was a member of the commission and that President Kennedy had fired his brother, former Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.

"[Dulles] insinuated himself onto the Warren Commission and essentially ran the Warren Commission and kept this evidence from the Warren commissioners," Kennedy claimed.

"Either way, when Congress, 10 years later, investigated the crime with much more evidence than the Warren Commission had at its disposal, Congress found that, yeah, it was a plot. It was a conspiracy [and] there were multiple people involved.

"And most of the people in that investigation believe that it was the CIA that was behind it — because the evidence was overwhelming to them."

According to RealClearPolitics, the upstart anti-vaxxer candidate, who was 9 years old when his uncle was killed in Dallas, is receiving an average of 19.7% support in the Democratic primary.

RFK Jr. claimed to recall that the CIA was the target of his father's first contact after learning of his brother's murder, asking them whether they were to blame.

"It was my father's first instinct that the agency had killed his brother," Kennedy added.

In addition, the candidate said his father had looked into Jack Ruby, who is accused of being the triggerman in the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald on live television, and discovered that he had connections to crime bosses and casino owners who were "cahoots" with the CIA.

The CIA has continued to deny involvement in the assassination.

Despite studies showing that the majority of Americans think JFK was assassinated in a conspiracy, no convincing proof that Oswald acted alone has been found.

After winning the 1968 California Democratic presidential primary, Robert F. Kennedy was killed at a hotel in Los Angeles less than five years later.

Sirhan Sirhan, a Jordanian citizen of Palestinian descent, was found guilty of the murder and is currently serving a life sentence.

RFK Jr. called for that murder investigation to be reopened in 2018. And also, for Sirhan to be paroled.

"Anybody who reads the autopsy report is — it's hard to believe that Sirhan shot my dad, that his bullets hit my dad," he told CBS News at the time. "Because Sirhan was always in front of my father ... And yet, all shots, all the four shots that hit my father came from behind him."
