President Trump has decided to release classified JFK documents that have been hidden from the public for years. “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” announced President Trump.
“The President believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise,” a White House official told reporters.
They released 2,800 files that have never been seen before by the public. And there were some extremely fascinating things in those documents. However, over 300 files are being kept confidential. The documents discuss Hoovers firm stance that Oswald was the lone killer. ““The thing I am concerned about, and so is Mr. [Nicholas] Katzenbach, is having something issued so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin,” said Hoover.
They also revealed that a British newspaper received a big tip 25 minutes before the shooting. Also Dallas officials received warnings of Oswalds shooting. “Last night, we received a call in our Dallas office from a man … in a calm voice and saying he was a member of a committee organized to kill Oswald,” revealed a document.
“We at once notified the chief of police and he assured us Oswald would be given sufficient protection. This morning we called the chief of police again warning of the possibility of some effort against Oswald and he again assured us adequate protection would be given. However, this was not done,” said the document.
