LIVE UPDATES — CIA Making Last-Minute Redactions To JFK Files
The JFK Files that are supposed to be released Thursday are currently being held up by intelligence agencies including the CIA and the FBI.
The clock is ticking. President Trump only has until midnight to sign the order to release the documents, which were scheduled to be released on this date pursuant to a commission formed after Oliver Stone’s groundbreaking 1991 film “JFK,” which bravely explored the government’s longstanding cover-up of the real motives behind the assassination.
Some documents might not ever see the light of day, according to Deep State information leaks to the mainstream media:
5:33 PM EASTERN
“The law says the National Archives must release the 35,000 documents by midnight unless President Donald Trump objects on national security grounds. On Thursday evening, U.S. officials said that some material would be released, and other documents would be withheld to give agencies more time to figure out what they want redacted.”
By late Thursday afternoon, the memo specifying which material the CIA, State Department and other agencies still want to keep under wraps had yet not made it to Trump’s desk, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
“There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done,” one official said.
The CIA is asking only for some redactions, not for all the documents to be held, the official said. But the other agencies involved in the process had not yet finished their submissions.”
