Trump to release JFK files, subject to 'further information'

Archivist Ken Hawkins looked over files concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in May 1994 at the National Archives in College Park Md

"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 in a tweet.

That includes 3000 documents that had never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that had been released previously but with redactions.

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. A 1992 law known as "The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act" required more than 3,000 previously-classified documents be made public by the law's 25th anniversary.

Oswald claimed he was going to the embassies to get visas to enter the USSR and Cuba, according to the Warren Commission, the investigative body set up by President Lyndon B. Johnson - but much about the trip remains unknown.

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.

Its members sought to ensure they were not hiding any information directly related to Kennedy's assassination, but there may be nuggets of information in the files that they did not realise were important two decades ago, he said.

"There could be some jewels in there because our level of knowledge in the 1990s is maybe different from today", said Judge John Tunheim, who was chairman of the agency who determined the fate of public assassination records. The Warren Commission reported after their 1964 study, that they believed that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the shooting, although some official later studies concluded that the shooting was the result of a conspiracy.

He added that "a very good White House source", but not Mr Trump, had told him the Central Intelligence Agency, and specifically its director Mike Pompeo, had been "lobbying the President furiously not to release these documents".

"You know, his father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being, you know, shot", Mr Trump told Fox News in an interview in May 2016, as he battled the Texas senator for the nomination. It sheds very bad light on the deep state, ' he said.
