President Trump announced on Twitter that the classified files on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy will finally be released Thursday.
“The long anticipated release of the #JFKFiles will take place tomorrow,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “So interesting!”
Trump arrived Wednesday afternoon in Dallas, where he received a briefing on Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
The move to release classified files could shed light on a tragedy that has stirred conspiracy theories for decades.
The National Archives has until Oct. 26 to disclose the remaining thousands of never-seen government documents on the 1963 assassination.
