2,800 JFK Assassination Documents Just Released by the National Archives

Moments ago, the National Archives released a trove of 2,800 documents that will shed more light on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. According to the Archives, the release includes “FBI, CIA, and other agency documents (both formerly withheld in part and formerly withheld in full) identified by the Assassination Records Review Board as assassination records.” You can find the documents here.

This data dump was meant to include even more documents. But, according to The New York Times, Donald Trump “bowed to protests by the C.I.A. and F.B.I. by withholding thousands of additional papers pending six more months of review.” If those ever see the light of day, we’ll let you know.

    I’m not sure what they (FBI and CIA) hope to gain by waiting. Who could they still be protecting, and what difference would six months make?

    If I were Donald Trump, I wouldn’t take any open-car rides past any libraries between now and April 26th.

    Apparently some informants are still alive.

    I notice the level of ‘SWAMP Draining’ has picked up with threats of arrest and jail time for Comey and Hillary. ANTIFA and BAMN have issued calls for revolution starting Nov. 4. I personally don’t believe I have to buy more shotgun ammunition, but our president might want to be extra careful,…. because cornered rats will attack !!
