    David Francis Powers was more than the best freind of the President and his aid in the white house – he was Kennedy’s secret keeper and procurrer of women for the president arranging his trysts with women while protecting the President. He kept these secrets from Jackie and from the children since that time. He was riding behind the President as he was shot, moved him onto the gurney at parkland and moved his body back to the plane and to the Whte house. He never let go working as the currator of the library until he was past eighty years of age. Now 15 years after his family decides to sell the family home and “discovers” this trove of artifiacts? How did these things remain hidden for the past 15 years?
