Will allow release of secret JFK files, says Trump

The Washington Post reported that Trump had been urged by government agencies, including the CIA to keep the documents secret.

The classified files were scheduled to be made public by October 26, barring intervention by the president, under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.

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.

Scholars have been speculating for weeks whether Trump would release the documents related to Kennedy's death.

Most of the files are believed to be from the 1960s and 1970s, stemming from the 1963 assassination and aftermath.

Stone also told Jones that CIA Director Mike Pompeo "has been lobbying the president furiously not to release these documents".

"There's going to be no smoking gun in there", Gerald Posner, the author of "Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK", told CNN's Michael Smerconish.

Kennedy assassination experts say they don't think the last batch of papers contains any major bombshells.

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

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. Still a small portion, about 3,100 documents created inside the CIA, FBI and Justice Department, have been held back until now. Morley said Harvey led the agency's assassinations operations and feuded constantly with Kennedy's brother, Robert F. Kennedy, over the administration's crisis with Cuba.

"We might understand much better why they were watching Oswald".
