Donald Trump Makes Vow on JFK Assassination Files

If Donald Trump is re-elected as President of the United States, we may finally learn the whole truth about the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Trump said in an interview Monday that he would release the remaining JFK assassination files to the public.

“I released a lot, as you know. And I will release everything else,” Trump said in an interview with The Messenger Monday.

The 30-minute interview featured several topics, including the CNN town hall, Ron DeSantis, election fraud, abortion, and other issues.

Here’s the transcript provided by The Messenger regarding the JFK files:

The Messenger: Last one for me. I think I think we’re at 30 minutes, right. JFK files. You were going to release all of the JFK files as president. But in the end, you didn’t. And there was a podcast interview where Judge Andrew Napolitano said, and I’m paraphrasing here, that you told him the public shouldn’t see this information. Is that accurate?

Trump: “I released a lot, as you know. And I will release everything else.”

The Messenger: So there was nothing in there that the public should be scared about or that makes the US look terrible?

Trump: “Well, I don’t want to comment on that. But I will tell you that I have released a lot. I will release the remaining portion very early in my term.”

The Epoch Times reported:

When Trump was in office, he released some documents but did not release all of the records. At the time, his administration said that it could not release all of the records because “certain information should continue to be redacted because of identifiable national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns.”

“I agree with the Archivist’s recommendation that the continued withholdings are necessary to protect against identifiable harm to national security, law enforcement, or foreign affairs that is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in immediate disclosure. I am also ordering agencies to re-review each of those redactions over the next 3 years. At any time during that review period, and no later than the end of that period, agencies shall disclose information that no longer warrants continued withholding,” Trump’s office said in 2018.

In 1992, then-President George H.W. Bush, who had previously served as the director of the CIA, signed a measure into law that stipulated all JFK-related documents be made public. However, multiple presidential administrations, including the Biden administration, have held off on releasing the documents in their entirety.

Later, Biden still did not opt to fully disclose the assassination records but released some materials. In late December, federal officials released more than 13,000 records, including information about suspect Lee Harvey Oswald and his time spent in Mexico City.

Still, about 4,300 records remain redacted and are blacked out, according to the CIA. “We believe all CIA records substantively related to [former CIA agent George] Joannides were previously released, with only minor redactions, such as CIA employees’ names and locations,” the agency said in a news release issued the time, adding that “tremendous progress” has been made.

Robert F. Kennedy, nephew of John F. Kennedy and Democrat presidential candidate, said the CIA was involved in the murder of his uncle.

From the New York Post:

Democratic White House contender Robert Kennedy Jr. blames the CIA for the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy — proclaiming it “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Kennedy made the bombshell accusation about a murder that’s sparked many conspiracy theories during an interview Sunday with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable.”

“There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point,” Kennedy said of JFK’s assassination in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas.

“The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder, and in the cover-up.”

Kennedy Jr. cited James Douglas book “JFK and the Unspeakable” as compiling the most evidence on the topic — and labeled denials of the CIA’s role as a “60 year cover-up.”
