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 !!
