Trump Promises Release of Highly Controversial Documents if Reelected

( – Presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump has vowed to release documents around some of the most controversial and mysterious events in American history if he is elected this fall.

On a recent appearance on “Fox and Friends Weekend,” Trump answered yes when asked if he would declassify files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963; the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks; and the crimes of the late Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein was the financier who hobnobbed with the rich and famous and world leaders, and who was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges in 2019 when he died under mysterious circumstances. Though his prison death was ruled a suicide, many in the public are not convinced, and there is intense interest in finding out which public figures may have been involved in Epstein’s illicit activities.

Earlier this year a judge ordered some of the Epstein files to be released, and these documents featured references to names such as former president Bill Clinton, the late physicist Stephen Hawking, and others. None of the files directly indicated any illegal activity by the public figures named within them. Witness statements in the files say that former President Trump never visited Epstein’s famous island, where it is rumored that wild parties and worse may have occurred.

What Trump told Fox host Rachel Campos-Duffy echoed earlier statements he has made about papers surrounding the JFK assassination. Although the official government line was that Kennedy was killed by “lone gunman” Lee Harvey Oswald, the suspicious forensics in the killing have left many questioning this explanation. On his platform Truth Social, Trump previously promised to declassify all papers related to JFK, saying, “It’s been 60 years” and it is time that Americans learned the truth.

According to the National Archives, nearly all of the files around the Kennedy assassination—99 percent—have already been released. President Joe Biden added to that number, declassifying another 16,000 documents during his presidency.
