JFK Files Watch: Trump set a high bar for full disclosure

With 17 days to go until President Trump’s April 26 deadline for release of the last of the U.S. government’s assassination files, it is worth recalling what Trump told the head of U.S. government agencies in his October 26, 2017 order.

“The need for continued protection can only have grown weaker with the passage of time since the Congress made this finding. Accordingly, each agency head should be extremely circumspect  [Emphasis added] in recommending any further postponement of full disclosure of records.”

What will Trump do? I truly don’t know. Larry Sabato, presidential scholar and JFK author, says:

My bet is Trump will do whatever his new BFF [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo recommends. That means CIA will be protected
