Trump Vows to Release All Files on JFK Assassination If Reelected

President Donald Trump has vowed to release all of the files related to the assassination of JFK if reelected in 2024.

The pledge from Trump comes amid renewed interest in the death of former President John F. Kennedy.

JFK’s nephew, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has recently made allegations about the death of his uncle.

RFK Jr., who is running in the 2024 Democrat presidential primary, alleged that U.S. intelligence officials may have been involved in JFK’s 1963 death.

“I released a lot, as you know,” Trump told The Messenger on Monday, referring to the Kennedy records.

“And I will release everything else.”

When Trump was in office, he released some documents.

However, he did not get to release all of the records before he left office.

At the time, his administration said that it could not release all of the records because “certain information should continue to be redacted because of identifiable national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns.”

“I agree with the Archivist’s recommendation that the continued withholdings are necessary to protect against identifiable harm to national security, law enforcement, or foreign affairs that is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in immediate disclosure,” Trump’s office said in 2018.

“I am also ordering agencies to re-review each of those redactions over the next 3 years.

“At any time during that review period, and no later than the end of that period, agencies shall disclose information that no longer warrants continued withholding.”

In 1992, then-President George H.W. Bush, who had previously served as the director of the CIA, signed a measure into law that stipulated all JFK-related documents be made public.

However, multiple presidential administrations, including Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration, have held off on releasing the documents in their entirety.

Later, Biden still did not opt to fully disclose the assassination records but released some materials.

In late December, federal officials released more than 13,000 records, including information about suspect Lee Harvey Oswald and his time spent in Mexico City.

Still, about 4,300 records remain redacted and are blacked out, according to the CIA.

“We believe all CIA records substantively related to [former CIA agent George] Joannides were previously released, with only minor redactions, such as CIA employees’ names and locations,” the agency said in a news release issued at the time.

The CIA added that “tremendous progress” has been made.

During his interview with The Messenger, Trump was asked whether there should be anything the public should be worried about in the JFK records.

“Well, I don’t want to comment on that,” Trump replied.

“But I will tell you that I have released a lot.

“I will release the remaining portion very early in my term.”

The subject of JFK’s assassination became national news again this month after RFK Jr. told media outlets in several interviews that he suspects the CIA was involved in his uncle’s death.

Oswald, a former Marine and onetime defector to the Soviet Union, was arrested and charged with the assassination.

However, he was shot and killed by nightclub owner Jack Ruby before he could face trial.

Ruby was reportedly suspected to be a mob associate and died several years later in prison.

“There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder,” Kennedy told radio host John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 in early May.

“I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point.

“The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder, and in the cover-up,” he also said.

He later told another news outlet that after JFK’s death, his father, former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, reflexively believed that the CIA may have been involved.

Kennedy has made similar claims in the past.

He has also alleged that his father wasn’t shot and killed by Palestinian communist sympathizer Sirhan Sirhan at a California hotel in 1968.

Instead, he says Sen. Kennedy was killed by another individual.

Kennedy Jr. is running against Biden for the Democratic Party nomination.

Biden has not issued any public responses to claims that Kennedy has made.
