Trump says he will let JFK assassination documents be released

Posted October 22, 2017

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

President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he will unseal tens of thousands never-before-seen documents on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

While many have argued his death came at the hands of his own government, there is no conclusive evidence to prove that Kennedy's killer, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted in consort with anyone else.

In May 2016, while on the presidential campaign trail, Trump gave an interview to Fox News strongly accusing the father of his GOP primary opponent Sen.

U.S. -India relations have generally prospered in the past decade, in part due to their shared concerns about the rise of China. China, he said, uses funding mechanisms with countries that "result in saddling them with enormous levels of debt".

In a statement on Twitter, Trump revealed he will be allowing the "long blocked" documents to be opened for the first time.

After nearly 54 years of questions and conspiracy theories, the world may finally learn all that was officially recorded about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

In the days leading up to Trump's announcement, a National Security Council official told The Washington Post that government agencies were urging the president not to release some of the documents.

The 1963 assassination of JFK has always been muddied by conspiracy theories. The 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act required that the millions of pages - many of them contained in Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation documents - be published in 25 years, by October 26.

Trump can withhold the release of certain documents if he believes their release could pose harm to United States intelligence, law enforcement, the military or United States foreign relations.

During the visit, Oswald tried to obtain visas from the Cuban consulate and Soviet embassy, according to documents released in 1999.

Rex Bradford, president of the Mary Ferrell Foundation, which publishes assassination records, was quoted by the CBS News as saying that Kennedy experts also hope to see the full report on Oswald's trip to Mexico City from staffers of the House committee that investigated the assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald was convicted of his murder, with the Warren Commission appointed by Kennedy's successor, Lyndon Johnson, finding he acted alone.
