7 new findings from the latest JFK files

JFK assassination files: 7 new things

President Donald Trump on Thursday didn't release all of the files about the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy — but he did make public more than 2,800 pages of documents.

The ones Trump did release, which partially fulfills a decades-old law calling for the release of the files from the National Archives, contain a rich trove of previously sealed information. Collectively, they deepen what's known about one of the most haunting and mysterious events in American history. The documents released Thursday night include fresh insights into shooter Lee Harvey Oswald's motives, how the FBI reacted to the shooting and Oswald's interactions with Soviet intelligence officers.

Trump Delays Release of Some Kennedy Assassination Files

Trump delays release of some JFK assassination documents

The U.S. government will delay the release of some files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the White House said Thursday.

Instead, the National Archives will allow just 2,800 documents to emerge Thursday evening. Whether or not the other records come out will depend on an 180-day review of redactions from objecting agencies, the Trump administration said.

“I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted,” President Donald Trump wrote in a memo Thursday evening announcing the delay. “At the same time, executive departments and agencies have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns. I have no choice — today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our Nation's security.”
