National Archives expected to release classified Kennedy assassination documents today

WASHINGTON–  The National Archives is expected to release classified documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy today.

The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 mandates that the all of the documents related to the assassination be released no later than Oct. 26, 2017.

While the President of the United States has the statutory authority to block the release of some of those documents, Trump announced in a Wednesday tweet that he will allow them to be unsealed.

Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.

Since the assassination conspiracy theories have emerged suggesting the shooting was orchestrated by parties such as the U.S. intelligence community, organized crime figures and the Russian government.

Conspiracy theories also have emerged suggesting Oswald may not have been the only shooter.
