President Trump is allowing the release of thousands of never publicly seen government documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The National Archives is set to release the material later this week.
In a tweet Saturday, Trump said “subject to the receipt of further information, I will allow the long blocked and classified JFK files to be opened.” Most of the files are said to be from the 1960s and 1970s.
Experts on the Kennedy assassination don’t expect the files to contain any major bombshells. The 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act had set a deadline of October 26, 2017 for the release of the documents in question but Trump could block the release on the grounds that making the material public would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations.
I’m not sure what information we’ll be reading that we don’t already know but it would be nice to one day know the truth. Sigh, right, that will never happen. ~grace
