Classified JFK assassination files will become public, Trump announces in a tweet

Classified JFK assassination files will become public, Trump announces in a tweet

Actually, the release of the CIA and Federal Bureau of Investigation documents has been scheduled for a quarter of a century by law (the Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act), but according to reports, some in the intelligence community had suggested keeping at least some of the documents under wraps for national security purposes, a power the President has.

Roger Stone, a right-winger who has always been a friend of Trump's, wrote a book alleging that Johnson was the driving force behind Kennedy's assassination.

The only person who can prevent the release of the documents is President Trump, who still has the power to withhold any or all documents he believes could endanger U.S. Intelligence, law enforcement, or the military.

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.

During the presidential campaign, he at one point alleged that the father of Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican primary rival from Texas, had been with Oswald shortly before Kennedy was killed.

Conspiracy theorists have long pointed out the inconsistencies in the numerous reports, studies and commissions done since the November 1963 assassination as proof that America wasn't getting the full story. They don't even talk about that.

He went on: "What was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death, before the shooting?"

Look up to see the Orionids meteor shower tonight
It should be visible from anywhere on Earth, but a better shower will be seen in rural areas where there is less light pollution. October may be best known for pumpkins, fall weather and haunted houses, but the month is also prime time for meteor showers.

On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was shot in the head and neck as he rode through Dallas in an open vehicle.

Despite serious questions about the official inquest, and theories purporting that organized crime, Cuba or a cabal of United States security agents was involved, conspiracy theorists have yet to produce conclusive proof Oswald acted in consort with anyone.

Trump political consultant Roger Stone said he opposes delaying the records' release.

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.

"Why? Because I believe they show that Oswald was trained, nurtured and put in place by the Central Intelligence Agency".

"It sheds very bad light on the state".
