Documentary film maker Randy Benson makes a important point about the latest JFK file release, which left more than 15,000 assassination-related records beyond public view: President Trump is responsible. While railing against the “deep state,” Trump kept the last of the CIA and FBI’s assassination-related secrets.
I still get asked about the documents. Every president since ’63 had the power to release all documents. Remember: @realDonaldTrump had NO role in releasing anything: he STOPPED the releases until 2021. Who the president is simply doesn’t matter. #documentsmatter #historymatters pic.twitter.com/9gG40waMR5
