President Trump to allow JFK assassination files to be released

Warren Commission Exhibits 2966a and Exhibit 2966b Lee Harvey Oswald distributing

Trump caveated the decision as being "subject to the receipt of further information".

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to announce his administration would be releasing classified documents regarding the November 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) of consorting with Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald right before the shooting. The National Archives is required to release all of its JFK documents by Thursday, 25 years to the day after President George H.W. Bush signed the JFK Assassination Records Act.

That came in a tweet Saturday, which left open the possibility something could still happen to block at least part of the release.

The White House said in a statement to Politico earlier this week that the White House was working "to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released to the public" by next week's deadline.

The files should put to rest any remaining conspiracy theories around the shocking assassination that have long fuelled rumours of darker forces at play.

Trump's tweet appears as though he's leaning towards a complete release documents, but The Post reported that he may stop short of fully disclosing all the information if the security establishment provides good cause. Two Republican lawmakers introduced legislation on Capitol Hill this fall to prod Trump into releasing the last remaining records related to the assassination.

Jefferson Morley, a former Post reporter who has studied the Kennedy assassination records for years, said the last tranche of material is also intriguing because it contains files on senior Central Intelligence Agency officials from the 1960s - officers well aware of Oswald's activities in the days before the assassination.

Ken Hughes, a presidential researcher at the University of Virginia's Miller Center, told CNN the files could shed light on the USA involvement in the attempts to assassinate Castro as well as the US-approved coup of South Vietnamese leader Ngô Đình Diệm in 1963.

That conclusion, however, has not satisfied many conspiracy theorists.
