HBO recently acquired VICE and they’re now producing news shows. Today, they shot an episode with Dark Journalist, Daniel Liszt in anticipation of the final release of the JFK assassination records. I was invited to come on as a sidekick. One segment included this raw livestream discussing some of the more interesting documents released through FOIA requests and by the National Archives in the past.
As of the time of this posting, new records have not been released.
According to NBC, “By late Thursday afternoon, the memo specifying which material the CIA, State Department and other agencies still want to keep under wraps had yet not made it to Trump’s desk, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
“‘There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done,’ one official said.
“The CIA is asking only for some redactions, not for all the documents to be held, the official said. But the other agencies involved in the process had not yet finished their submissions.
“Trump, who is no stranger to peddling conspiracy theories about the Kennedy killing, had appeared to be especially eager to get the latest JFK documents out.
“This is likely to be the last JFK document dump, and it remains to be seen whether it finally satisfies people who still dispute the finding of the Warren Commission that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he gunned down Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963.”
