The National Archives has released all but one percent of the government documents related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Fox News confirmed.
According to the White House, NARA completed a review of the remaining JFK files and ordered them released to the public. However, one percent of those documents have been odiously held back.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of President Kennedy and a current Democrat presidential candidate in the 2024 election, stated on Twitter, “It’s not about conspiracy – it is about transparency.
In a midnight Friday night announcement the White House has delivered the bad news that President Biden will be maintaining secrecy indefinitely on some JFK assassination related records.”
He continued, “The assassination was 60 years ago. What national security secrets could possibly be at risk? What are they hiding?”
As reported by RSBN, the ongoing secrecy surrounding the killing of JFK has prompted intense scrutiny and suspicion from the American public. RFK Jr. has openly stated that he believes the American intelligence community had an alleged hand in the assassination of the slain president.
He told Joe Rogan in June, “Well, I gotta be careful. You know, I’m aware of that…I’m aware of that danger. I don’t live in fear of it. At all. But I’m not stupid about it, and I take precautions.”
President Donald Trump previously released a hefty number of JFK files in 2017, in accordance with the 1992 Kennedy Assassination Records Act, per RSBN.
However, President Trump has also promised to release everything that has been held from public view if he is reelected again in 2024.
“I will release everything else,” he told The Messenger’s Marc Caputo earlier this year.
RFK Jr. added on Twitter that he believed the Biden administration’s decision to withhold the release of one percent of the JFK files to be “unlawful.”
He wrote, “The White House announcement is unlawful. In 1992 the JFK Records Act was passed unanimously by Congress with the promise that all assassination related records would be released no later than October 2017. This promise has broken once again with this midnight announcement.”
