It’s a big, BIG moment for conspiracy theorists.
The National Archives will be releasing thousands of classified files this week related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Saturday morning, President Trump took to Twitter to announce “subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.”

The impending release follows a decision made back in 1992, when Congress ruled the JFK files can be made public within 25 years, unless the president argues it could harm intelligence or military operations.
JFK scholars think the 3,000 classified files might contain information on assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s trip to Mexico City where he visited Soviet and Cuban embassies prior to JFK’s murder.
As for what won’t be revealed? We’re guessing Trump won’t be finding any classified evidence to back up his unfounded 2016 conspiracy that Senator Ted Cruz’s father was somehow associated with Oswald.
