Trump to allow release of thousands of JFK files by National Archives

President Trump says he will allow classified JFK documents to be made public

"Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened", Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

Politico magazine earlier quoted Trump administration and other US government officials as saying the president would nearly certainly block the release of information from some of the thousands of classified files, which the US National Archives is due to make public by an Oct 26 deadline.

Trump's tweet did allow some wiggle room for last-minute exclusions by noting that his decision was "subject to receipt of further information".

The 1963 assassination of JFK has always been muddied by conspiracy theories.

Republican members of Congress, including Senate judiciary committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, have urged Trump to allow the full release of the documents.

Former President George H.W. Bush signed a law in 1992 that disclosed classified records relating to the assassination, except those "where the strongest possible reasons counsel otherwise". Walter Jones said in a statement earlier this month. Ted Cruz of consorting with Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald right before the shooting.

If you think the government is hiding something about the Kennedy assassination, you may get to see what it is.

Others wanted nothing held back and some news outlets were suggesting the timing of the release might help distract from allegations of the President's possible ties to Russian Federation. "And my understanding is that he won't without infuriating people at the Central Intelligence Agency and elsewhere who are determined to keep at least some of the information secret, especially in documents created in the 1990s".

There are about 3,100 previously unreleased files that hold tens of thousands of pages of new material.

While many have argued his death came at the hands of his own government, there is no conclusive evidence to prove that Kennedy's killer, Lee Harvey Oswald, acted in consort with anyone else. Phillips, Morley said, oversaw the agency's operations against Cuban president Fidel Castro and was deeply familiar with the CIA's surveillance of Oswald in Mexico City.
