Documentation of JFK Assassination To Be Released To The Public

Quote:
President Donald Trump said Saturday he intends to allow the release of classified government documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy "subject to the receipt of further information."

Trump's tweet comes as he is staring down an October 26 deadline set in law by Congress mandating the public release of the still-secret documents -- including FBI and CIA files -- barring any action by the President to block the release of certain documents.

"Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened," Trump said, appearing to leave open the possibility that some documents could still be withheld.

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.

Trump himself is no stranger to the controversies and conspiracy theories that have long swirled around the assassination of the 35th president.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump made the unfounded claim that the father of GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz was associated with Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, a claim he has never reneged nor apologized for.

Trump's longtime political adviser Roger Stone, who helped launch Trump's campaign for president, is also an avid conspiracy theorist who wrote a book about the wild claim that President Lyndon B. Johnson, Kennedy's vice president, was involved in Kennedy's assassination.

Stone tweeted Saturday morning that he urged Trump to release the classified documents.

Declassifying stuff is usually a good idea. It's been long enough.

As long as we don't find out Canada assassinated JFK and Trump declares war, we'll be fine.

Meh. We aren’t going to learn anything new or earthshattering I’d bet. And I’m a huge history nerd who would LOVE if there was something new in the file.

Here are five things learned from what was released

-Dallas officer J.D Tippit, who Oswald had also killed, had apparently met with a third part at the nightclub of Jack Ruby, Oswald's future killer

-J. Edgar Hoover's letters revealed that the Dallas offices of the FBI were contacted by a man claiming that there existed a committee organized to conspire against Oswald and to ultimately kill him

-Oswald did meet with Valeriy Kostikov, who worked with the KFB's "13th department", which dealt specifically with assassinations.

-Soviets themselves blamed President Lyndon B. Johnson for the assassination

-A British newspaper received a tip-off that the assassination would happen twenty five minutes before the tragedy occurred
