Former President Donald Trump has made a significant promise to the American people regarding the still-secret documents related to the suspicious assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. In an interview with The Messenger, Trump declared that if he were re-elected to the White House, he would release all the remaining documents pertaining to the Kennedy assassination.
On that fateful day on November 22, 1963, Kennedy’s life was tragically cut short at the age of 46 in Dallas. The arrest of Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine and supposed defector to the Soviet Union, soon followed. Oswald was charged with the killings of Kennedy and Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit. Despite Oswald’s claims of innocence and being a mere “patsy,” he was never given the opportunity for a trial, as he was fatally – and very conveniently – shot by nightclub owner Jack Ruby in a shocking televised event at the Dallas Police headquarters.
The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, signed into law by former President George H.W. Bush, was expected to shed light on the event. However, over the years, there have been numerous delays and partial disclosures of documents, leaving room for lingering conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy’s death even after nearly six decades.
During his first term in office, President Trump oversaw the release of certain documents but chose not to authorize full disclosure due to concerns related to national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs. President Joe Biden has also refrained from making a complete release. Although the current deadline for disclosure is set for June 30, sporadic online postings of documents have occurred in recent months. The National Archives has stated that over 97% of the collection is already available.
When asked if there was any information in the collection that the public should find alarming or damaging to the United States’ image, Trump refrained from providing a direct comment. However, he assured the American people that he had already released a substantial amount of information and would make the remaining portion available early in his term if re-elected.
“Well, I don’t want to comment on that,” Trump said. “But I will tell you that I have released a lot. I will release the remaining portion very early in my term.”
It is worth noting that Robert Kennedy Jr., nephew of President Kennedy, is vying for the Democratic Party’s nomination in the 2024 presidential race, challenging President Biden. In recent days, he has garnered attention by expressing his belief in “overwhelming” evidence suggesting CIA involvement in his uncle’s assassination.
The CIA publicly claims innocence but several sources inside the CIA have disputed that already.
The truth will come out… eventually. And good for Trump if he can get it out sooner rather than later!
