Media blew up when Trump didn’t release all JFK files, new announcement will have them eating crow

Previously withheld files about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are now being cleared for release by the FBI.

The White House released 2,800 documents related to the 1963 assassination last week but a full release of all the existing files was delayed at the request of the FBI and CIA. The files needed further redacting due to security concerns, according to officials.

The withholding of about 300 documents created an uproar that forced President Trump to respond, apparently unhappy with the delay.

On Monday, the FBI announced that the National Archives would now publish the 300 remaining documents on a rolling basis in the coming weeks, Politico reported.

The bureau indicated that these documents do contain some redactions relating to people who provided information during the assassination investigation, whose lives could be at risk if they are identified.

All redactions, besides the names and addresses of people who may still be living, will be removed, according to the FBI.

Trump initially thought the process would take a few months but things were sped up as the president sought complete transparency in releasing information to the public.
