Trump Will Allow Release of Secret JFK Assassination Files

(Zero Hedge) Following years of delays, President Trump announced on Twitter on Saturday morning that he will allow the release of more than 3,000 of classified documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The unexpected announcement means that a trove of previously unseen documents will be released by the National Archives by October 26.

In 1992, Congress mandated that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, unless the president asserts that doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations.

The still-secret documents include more than 3,000 that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been released previously, but with redactions, according to CBS.

Trump’s decision means that thousands of formerly classified documents related to Kennedy’s assassination will be unveiled next week in compliance with the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which states that the federal government must release them by Oct. 26, 2017.

JFK scholars hope the new documents may provide insight into assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to Mexico City weeks before the killing, during which he visited the Soviet and Cuban embassies.

Oswald’s stated reason for going was to get visas that would allow him to enter Cuba and the Soviet Union, according to the Warren Commission, the investigative body established by President Lyndon B. Johnson, but much about the trip remains unknown…

A former Washington Post reporter who has written extensively about the Kennedy assassination papers, said the remaining documents might include files on senior CIA officers from the 1960s who likely knew details of the agency’s surveillance of Oswald in Mexico City.

    I have no idea how many assasination attempts are made on presidents while they are in office. Or out of office, for that matter. Am sure it is plenty.

  • Peter J

    I wonder… will we ever really learn the whole truth and who was ultimately behind the assassination?

    • Richard Neva

      Read my post please and do the research yourself like I did. It is all over the Internet and in books but you have to dig. They really do not want you to know because those damn Jews are America’s good buddies!

        You have the right to your opinion.
        But all you are doing is damming your self.
        Because, you are blaming the Jews.
        And that is wrong.
        Scripture says:
        God will bless those that bless Israel.
        And he will curse those who curse Israel.

          Gen 12: 3 that statement was made to Abram not Jacob (Israel), Misquoting the Bible doesnt help. Anti semetic statements dont help either.
          Back to the question: we will only know what they want us to know.

          • Star Wright

            You said Jews.
            And I said: Gen.12:3.
            Read the Bible further.
            And you will learn, that we
            are all the families of the earth.
            And we are of Abraham.

        Well Richard, when you stand before JESUS.You will have to give an account, of your nasty attitude toward the Jews.
        You are without excuse.

      This time under Trump will be the best chance in our lifetime.
      Kennedy and people like Vincent Foster have a slim chance for a short window of openess.

        Trust me these documents has been scub till they shine 😀
        CIA, FBI, DOJ, IRS, Homeland Un- Security, Congress and nothing more than corrupt CYA agencies. You will learn just what they want you to know, nothing more.

        • banjojack

          You are correct. What will be released will be little more than a collection of prepositions with lots of black marks in between.

    • John Stauffer

      You won’t likely find it with this release!

    • Alan w.

      It was not Oswald. It was VP LBJ , G.H.W.Bush , CIA , FBI , Mayor of Dallas , Mafia and foreign hired snipers. 8 shooters in kill zone.
      Kennedy was good as dead when he entered the Kill Zone.

    • slidenglide

      Johnson believed he should have been elected,… Kennedy wasn’t suppose to have come along. Kennedy was the peoples choice. Having Kennedy killed was his way to make sure that he was. Oswald, was setup. Jack Ruby was setup.

      • Star Wright

        Exactly!

  • Greg Zonker

    Probably a lot–we only hear abut the ones that are were attempted in public.

  • Lucia826

    Too much click bait, guys!

  • Richard Neva

    This is a joke since the FBI and CIA were co-conspirators of the JFK assassination along with their good buddies the Jew Mossad!

    • Meteorlady

      Oh pleassssse…. what is all this hatred of Jews? How about LBJ and the Bankers? Just 6 months before his assassination he signed an EO 11110 the would effectively put the Federal Reserve out of business.

      • banjojack

        It was more like a couple of weeks, wasn’t it?

      • Jimmy the Greek

        @ Meteorlady who do you think the bankers are ?

      • Paul

        Lincoln messed with the bankers also.I did see that Executive Order. See attached link.
        For what it is worth.Kennedy came out strongly in disfavor of the military Industrial Complex in that time frame also.

      • Star Wright

        Exactly!

  • Dynadobe

    It should be released. The American people should have been allowed this knowledge many years ago. It may not offer answers, though. Or it may open up new questions and doubts. Personally, when Ruby shot Oswald, I knew it was a conspiracy. Had to be. Why on earth would he have shot him except to make sure he could not talk? The greatest cover-up in our history. Followed by the Clinton crimes.

  • Frank Leach

    I doubt that the CIA will allow any documents that incriminate them to be released.

    • Meteorlady

      The key word was “redacted”.

  • David Ciambrone

    Why did they classify them in the first place? Probably to cover up the FBI, CIA and other department’s inadequacies. They flubbed the ball and wanted to cover it up.

    • Fed up!

      The Kennedy’s where always a torn in the Rockefellers side. JFK was the worst to them. If you think Owald was a lone gun men, and Ruby removed the any and all evidence, well you get the prize. Did the FBI, CIA help? Good luck on tying them to it, they is good. Ok CIA is, FBI today are bubbling idiots.

      • banjojack

        The question is not are the FBI idiots today; the question is were they idiots in 1963?

  • G.Mann

    The cause of JFK death…. Lyndon Johnston …. bottom line..
    JFK signed an Executive Order that would have closed the Federal Reserve and eliminated the strangle hold they have on America [Federal Reserve is neither “federal” or a “reserve”, but a private corporation owned by very rich very greedy people, IRS is a collection arm for the Fed]

    JFK was killed within 90 days after signing that Executive Order, which still is in place. Look it up yourself… Lyndon Johnston was OWNED by the Federal Reserve. Look up HIS history… His first action after being sworn in as POTUS was to stop that Executive Order from activation.

    Do your own research, Draw your own conclusions…

    • Col C

      This is one of the most likely reasons, Kennedy wanted the gold standard, and the Federal Reserve had to stop him. It’s always about the money.

      • Star Wright

        Money or power

    • Star Wright

      It is either or power!
      That is the bottom line.

    • cindy galt

      Please take the t out of Johnson – I don’t want any chance of being related to him to surface. Johnston is my maiden name!

  • U can bet the bank any information showing the mob, CIA , LBJ, or International Bankers had Kennedy snuffed has been destroyed eons ago.

  • Jimmy the Greek

    he was killed by the Zionist state !

    • WVF

      Does that include LBJ, CIA, and the FBI?

      • Jimmy the Greek

        Mossad some of the best killers on the planet is who killed JFK because he would not play ball with the Zionist state !

  • WVF

    I’m please that President Trump is going to let us see info which has been a secret since LBJ, CIA, and the FBI murdered president Kennedy in 1963. It’s highly unlikely we will learn anything new about the truth, because those documents were scrubbed as clean as Killary Rotten Benghazi Clinton’s hard drives long ago.

    • Star Wright

      Totaly agree with you.

  • Constitution

    People who blocked the investigation should have been jailed.
    People who locked up info should have been jailed.
    Constitution does NOT say, hide truth, cover up & protect murderers.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iU83R7rpXQY film should have been released day 1.

    There is nothing there so there is no need to keep them secret nor was there ever a reason.

  • John

    I hope that it reveals the truth of what happened once and for all. The conspiracies and mistrust of every level of government and once hallowed institutions have undermined all subsequent administrations in one way or another.

    Does Hillary have an alibi for that day? She would have been a teen and hungry for her first kill.

  • Star Wright

    I always thought that Johnson had President Kennedy killed.
    Because he wanted to be
    President.

  • Louie Rey

    Unless what finally gets released specifically states the exact and incontrovertible evidence of exactly what happened nothing’s going to change. However, as far as I’m concerned, based on the Zapruder film, there was definitely more than one shooter. The first shot was clearly made from behind JFK but the most likely fatal shot came from in front. I’m no firearms expert but I find it extremely difficult to believe that your head would violently jerk BACK if you’re being shot from BEHIND. There definitely was someone else in that grassy knoll that did him in.

    • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

      I am a pretty fair shot, and generally don’t take a shot at a groundhog unless it’s at least 200 yards away. I have stood in the window of the old schoolbook depository building and i think that would have been a very difficult shot. The much easier shot would have been when the motorcade was coming almost straight at the building before it made the turn. He would not have had to lean out of the window to make the shot, it would have been a straight on frontal shot, and as military training would have taught him he could have been a few feet inside the window muffling the noise, concealing the flash, and making it much more difficult to tell where the shots were coming from.

      • Louie Rey

        Thanks for giving me a heads up on your marksmanship. I promise to treat you special and not offend you! It’s obvious that you have a background in firearms which I do not. So I ask again, would a person that gets shot from BEHIND have his/her head jerk BACK? That’s what happened to JFK and going by pure physics I don’t see how that’s possible.

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    More like Lee Harvey Scapegoat. And don’t worry, anything that would bring the truth to light was destroyed long ago.

  • travis690

    Posting this a little late, but it looks like the Deep State will have a few more months to look over the documents that they’ve already had 25 years to look over, so that they can determine what is really national security that is covered in these documents.

    But apparently, the FBI and the CIA have put forth reasons these should not see the light of day, and the President has given them six more months to make their final redactions in the documents.

    Unfortunately, they were able to do so without having to testify in public about what is included in those documents.

    At this point, those scurrilous leaders of those two dangerous agencies should be forced to testify in public what is included in those documents, and not just in generalities. If they want to withhold portions from release, they should be required to testify about those contents (Example: “On page 615 of Document 5, there is listed the name of the witness that told us that it was a waste of effort to investigate George L. Bush’s connection to the case, because he has already said that he was somewhere else that day.”). Note that the portion in parentheses was an example; any connection to any real person who may be living or dead was purely coincidental.

    Then, after all the questions have been answered, those agency heads need to be separated from their jobs.
