Welp, we were afraid this was going to happen! Donald Trump will be withholding some files from the JFK assassination document dump scheduled for today, Oct. 26, and the internet is not happy!
For 25 years, conspiracy theorists have been eagerly waiting to see the thousands of documents the U.S. government has on the infamous assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. But, thanks to the last-minute actions of President Donald Trump, 71, it looks like they’ll have to keep waiting when it comes to some of the most sensitive information. Hundreds are going to be withheld from the document dump scheduled for Oct. 26, according to the Chicago Tribune. Trump’s decision reportedly comes at the behest of officials within FBI and CIA. This decision has stoked old fears that the federal government has something to hide.
This means that only 2,800 documents are going to be released from the treasure troves of files that have been gathered over the decades. Stranger still, as of this writing, those documents haven’t been released yet. A writer named Russ Kick has shared a response from the National Archives stating that the released hasn’t been cancelled but there is no timeframe for the release. What does that mean!? Has Trump kick-started another conspiracy? Head here to peruse photos of the 45th president.
“US intelligence agencies seem to be determined to make Trump look weak by delaying JFK files after he promised their released today,” Julian Assange, 46, the notorious founder of WikiLeaks wrote, clearly aiming to taunt the Commander-in-Chief into reversing his decision. “So they are only releasing 2,800 JFK files while the others remain under review,” another user shared. “I call bullsh*t. They’ve had 54 years to review.” Needless to say, some are deeply upset.
