Trump authorizes release of JFK assassination documents despite concerns from federal agencies
By Washington Post Staff October 21 at 8:53 AM
The National Security Council had urged President Trump to withhold the last batch of government documents that could shed more light on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act mandated the release of millions of pages related to Lee Harvey Oswald’s fatal shooting of Kennedy within 25 years. The final set of documents must be revealed by Oct. 26, and only Trump has the authority to push back the deadline.
Earlier this week Trump confidant Roger Stone told Infowars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones that he spoke to Trump and urged the president to release all the documents.This is a developing story. It will be updated.
