Gerald Posner, author of Case Closed, is optimistic.
When it comes government files about the JFK assassination, I usually keep expectations quite low. However, I think POTUS will honor his commitment to release everything on April 26. It is unquestionably the right thing to do. The public has a right to know what its government knows about the murder of JFK. Moreover, I am hopeful since it’s Trump who will decide. What was always needed to set these files free was an unconventional president, someone who refused to be caught up in the byzantine legal and technical morass utilized by the CIA, FBI and other agencies to keep files secret.
