Some JFK files to be held back for six months, pending review

President Donald Trump will not release the full tranche of records relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, instead following the recommendations of his national security agencies that some of those records be redacted, White House officials said.

The National Archives will release 2,800 records on Thursday, with the remaining documents remaining secret for the time being.

Senior administration officials declined to discuss the contents of the files that will be released, including whether they contain evidence of a conspiracy surrounding Kennedy’s death.
