President Lyndon Johnson 'nearly shot dead' hours after JFK assassination
I did a couplea searches for this, couldn't find any threads about it. Apologies if it's been posted already

President Lyndon Johnson was almost shot dead by an American secret service agent 14 hours after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, it has emerged.

The near miss is described in a new book co-written by the agent, Gerald Blaine, who was stationed outside the new president's house in Washington the evening after the assassination in November 1963.

In the early hours of the next morning, Mr Blaine heard someone approaching and drew his Thompson submachine gun, the book, The Kennedy Detail, explains.

It adds: "He firmly pushed the stock into his shoulder, ready to fire.

"He'd expected the footsteps to retreat with the loud sound of the gun activating, but they kept coming closer. Blaine's heart pounded, his finger firmly on the trigger. Let me see your face, you -------
.

"The next instant, there was a face to go with the footsteps. The new President of the United States, Lyndon Baines Johnson, had just rounded the corner, and Blaine had the gun pointed directly at the man's chest. In the blackness of the night, Mr Johnson's face went completely white.

Yeah, most of the book probably is, because the author Gerald Blaine 'also attempts to refute a widely held notion that Mr Kennedy had an affair with Marilyn Monroe'

Still, doesn't mean the main part of the article is beyond belief, or maybe I just like the notion of an accidental backfire

John W. McCormack would have become president in that case.

He is unrelated to the other John McCormack.
