Judge John Tunheim will speak about the 25th anniversary of the JFK Records Act at the National Press Club in Washington DC on March 16.
Tunheim, federal judge in Minneapolis, is the former chair of the independent civilian board that implemented the JFK Records Act and released some four million pages of assassination-related records since 1998.
These new JFK files have deepened and clarified the story of how the President John F. Kennedy was shot to death on November 22, 1963 and why no one was ever brought to justice for his wrongful death.
Tunheim will talk about the final implementation of tthe JFK Records Act. The law requires that all JFK records in the U.S. government possession must be made public by October 26, 2017. As first revealed by JFK Facts blog, some 3,500 JFK documents, most of them from the CIA and FBI, remain secret.
John Newman, Jim Lesar, and I and others will talk at the event about what is in those records and why they are relevant to understanding the causes of Kennedy’s death.
