Why Didn’t Trump Release JFK Docs?

By Donald Jeffries

One of Donald Trump’s many unfulfilled promises was his vow to release the remaining classified files on the JFK assassination. Roger Stone assured this author in a 2015 phone conversation that Trump “knows about all the conspiracies,” and made it clear that his long-time friend did not believe that Lee Harvey Oswald had been the assassin.

In an Oct. 28, 2017 tweet, Trump declared, “After strict consultation with [Chief of Staff] Gen. [John] Kelly, the CIA and other agencies, I will be releasing all files other than the names and address of any mentioned person who is still living. I am doing this for reasons of full disclosure, transparency and in order to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest.”

The last part of his tweet was troubling. Trump seemed to be ridiculing the notion of conspiracy in the death of JFK. Wouldn’t it have been more appropriate to state that he wanted all the information to be made public? Why would he want to “put any and all conspiracy theories to rest?” Why did he think the documents he released would do that?

Predictably, Trump caved to pressure from the intelligence agencies. He announced that he would not order the full release of all documents. Instead, he permitted an undetermined number of records to be delayed for 180 days until the intelligence community figured out what information they wanted redacted.

Responding to Trump’s capitulation to the Deep State, exiled journalist Julian Assange offered $100,000 for the remaining documents. In an Oct. 26, 2017 tweet, the Defend Assange Campaign stated, “The agencies have had literally 25 years to prepare for the scheduled release today. The delay is inexcusable.”

Trump’s excuse for flip-flopping sounded out of character for the brash billionaire who’d campaigned against entrenched power in Washington, D.C. “Departments and agencies have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns,” Trump said in a statement. “I have no choice—today—but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation’s security.”

As has been noted often by researchers, what possible “national security” interests could be involved, if the assassin was in fact a minimum-wage loser with no connections to the government?

In an explosive March 2023 interview on “The Joe Hoft Show,” Judge Andrew Napolitano related:

I’ll tell you a story about JFK. So Trump, as you know, I was privileged to be consulted by him many, many times during his presidency on the phone. He twice considered me for the Supreme Court, another story for another time.

But in one of our interviews, he said to me, “Don’t forget, I’m going to release the JFK files.”

I said, “I’m not going to forget it Mr. President, on the contrary, I’m going to remind you.”

Napolitano went on to recall:

The last conversation we had while he was in the White House, which is now about two weeks or 10 days before Joe Biden is being inaugurated, I reminded him of this. [Trump] said to me, “Yes, you’re quite correct Judge. I did say that, but, if you saw what I saw, you wouldn’t release it either. Someday, when we’re not on a phone call with 15 other people listening (meaning people in the White House), I’ll tell you what I saw. …”

Now what the hell did he see? … I don’t know. It must have terrified him and he’s one of the strongest character’s I ever known in my life and suddenly he became afraid to follow through on a promise he made, not just to me, but the American public several times. It had to be the CIA.

Trump’s purported comments to Napolitano come off as typically self-serving, i.e., an attempt to explain away his failure, once again, to do anything to really challenge the swamp he promised to drain. What could he possibly have seen in the classified documents? The reality is obvious to anyone who has taken the time to research the case. JFK was killed by a high-level conspiracy of top officials in the United States government. There isn’t going to be a memo somewhere that details who was involved in the plot, or the logistics of how it was to be done.

Trump has already vowed to release the remaining JFK files if he’s elected in 2024. He’s also said he will pardon the Jan. 6 political prisoners, and, finally, do something about the southern border—the kinds of things he failed to accomplish during his four years in office.

Considering all the evidence that demonstrates government agencies orchestrated the cover up of the JFK assassination, they aren’t about to release any documentation of their culpability. Move along, nothing to see here.

  1. I will remember forever that day, and I was only 7 years old boy…I went later in my life trough many books and articles about this coup d’ etat and horrible crime! Jim Garrisson’s Plausible Denial was a must book for me when I was emigrant in the US during Reagan times in Office… Your predecessor,The Spotlight under Willis Carto( blessed be his soul) was bringing the best articles you could find in the States! I still believe that it was jew orchestrated assassination when the zionists started to change the course, making them madd about the ” Green bucks” and other issues like refusing them nuclear technology to make nukes and few other issues…They even used jewish patsies to derail and cover the crime and investigation, damping it on L.H.Oswald and killing him by J.Ruby(Rubinstein)…We all know that jew G.H.W.Bush was involved in that crime of the 20th century in the US…Even the freemasons got a piece of pie in that assassination! The cabal blamed it on the mafia, Cubans and you name it…I am 100% sure, it was jew orchestrated assassination!!! And since that overthrow of US government, the Republic started to turn yiddish Demonrats and liberal with zionist marching atop all of them!!!

  2. Trump will never release those documents. As Norman Mailer stated in the past, “the files on the JFK case are like a Mercedes that was left in Harlem for 20 years.” There’s nothing there anymore and the docs that were released since 2017 revealed nothing of relevance on the case. All we need to know about what happened is that Kennedy was hit by three bullets (in the back, in the throat from the front, and in the head from the front). Connally was hit by at least two bullets. That’s five, so far; plus the misses that hit a street curb (James Tague injured), the one that hit the Stemmons Freeway sign, the one that hit the concrete portion of a manhole on the south side of Elm, the primary hit on the inside windshield chrome in the limousine and one that hit the sidewalk on the north side of Elm. Total of 10 shots fired. Bullets fired from two different directions from multiple gunmen. Yet the government insists there was no conspiracy and all is well. The crime is not the key to the case. The key to the case is the cover up and its continuation.
