President Trump said on Saturday that, subject to receipt of further information, he is going to release the last sealed documents regarding the assassination of President John F Kennedy.
Trump administration and other U.S. government officials told Polticio that the president would almost certainly block the release of information from some of the thousands of classified files.
“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.

Reuters reports, “The president believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise,” a White House official said.
Even though there are serious questions about the official investigation, conspiracy theories claiming that LBJ, Cuba, rogue CIA agents, or mobsters were responsible for JFK’s assassination, there has never been conclusive proof that Lee Harvey Oswald had any assistance. The most prominent theory points to the grassy knoll, where, in theory, a the actual assassin lay in wait.
The National Archives have slowly trickled out documents related to the assassination, but one last batch, tens of thousands of pages, remains.
Only the President has the authority to decide their release.
