The answer must come within months

The nation’s conspiracy-theorist-in-chief is facing a momentous decision. Will President Donald Trump allow the public to see a trove of thousands of long-secret government files about the event that, more than any other in modern American history, has fueled conspiracy theories – the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy?

The answer must come within months. And, according to a new timeline offered by the National Archives, it could come within weeks.

Under the deadline set by a 1992 law, Trump has six months left to decide whether he will block the release of an estimated 3,600 files related to the assassination that are still under seal at the Archives. From what is known of the JFK documents, most come from the CIA and FBI, and a number may help resolve lingering questions about whether those agencies missed evidence of a conspiracy in Kennedy’s death. As with every earlier release of JFK assassination documents in the 53 years since shots rang out in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, it is virtually certain that some of the files will be seized on to support popular conspiracy theories about Kennedy’s murder; other documents are likely to undermine them.

If he releases Kennedy's file then he should release Obama's. This way all can see his foreign student applications and when / if he was reinstated his US citizenship. Both points Obama stated facts on.

In this day/age I believe the answer will be NO! Allow those either involved directly/indirectly to leave the earth into the heavens and place another 25 time annex on the entire situation.

Cuz if the truth really came out TODAY - oh my LOCK AND LOAD!!!!!!

Well, he can release them, we all know why JFK was shot and killed, he had information on that Clinton Crime Family.

Our government has already ensured that "we the people" will never know the truth about what happened to JFK, who did it, or why. Like with Lincoln, the government immortalized Kennedy and covered up his crimes that got him killed. Time and the Deep Government have erased any evidence of the truth. Were there some who knew? You bet there were! Where are they now? Dead! 100 years apart, and the government handled it the same way. We the people are clueless, and the government intends to keep it that way.
