President Trump to release never before seen JFK assassination files
WASHINGTON D.C.- President Donald Trump announced that he will allow the release of classified FBI documents about the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy.
The classified JFK documents were scheduled to be released on Oct. 26, but it was unclear whether Trump would allow their publication. In a tweet this morning, Trump announced that he would not stand in the way of the release if no other information surfaced.
