CIA officials are panicked about President Trumps decision to finally release ‘confidential’ reports from the JFK Files regarding his assassination.
Time and time again presidential candidates swear to enforce complete transparency while campaigning yet fail to keep said promises every single time. Until now.
President Trump was one of these presidential candidates who appealed to the public by committing to an open information type system where important information isn’t kept form the American people with the age old excuse of being to ‘protect’ national security. Unlike his predecessors, Trump is actually standing by this commitment with his most recent statement regarding his approving the public release of JKF Files the nation has been anticipating for over twenty-five years. Yo say the CIA is in full in hysterics over this revelation would be and understatement, which begs the question, hiding something?
According to the Hill, Trump just shocked the world and said he will release the confidential files related to assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.
“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.
Speculation mounted among his critics that Mr Trump might have readily agreed to release the files in order to distract from the ongoing investigation into his alleged ties with Russia – although their publication was required by law following the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act.
This law – prompted partly by the Oliver Stone movie JFK, required the files, which run to millions of pages, many of them contained in CIA and FBI documents, to be published by 26 October, exactly 25 years after it was passed.
Over the years, the national archives has released the bulk of the documents, although some of them remain partially redacted. However, one final batch remains unreleased, and only the President has the authority to extend the secrecy of the documents past the deadline if he believes national security could be compromised by their opening.
