Vox Popoli: Trump stands by the truth

There is no legitimate reason the JFK assassination files should not be released to the public. None at all.

US President Donald Trump said Saturday he will allow long blocked secret files on the assassination of John F Kennedy to be opened to the public for the first time.

The November 22, 1963 assassination -- an epochal event in modern US history -- has spawned multiple theories challenging the official version that Kennedy was killed a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald.

So the release of all the secret documents has been eagerly anticipated by historians and conspiracy theorists alike. Trump's announcement followed reports that not all the files would be released, possibly to protect still relevant intelligence sources and methods.

But Trump appears to have decided otherwise.

"Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened," he said in a tweet.

Translation: Sayonara, Deep State. Dire and nebulous warnings of cats and dogs living together are no longer sufficient to compel presidential obedience. Everyone understands now that they protect no one's interests but their own.

Drain the Swamp + Build the Wall = Trumpslide 2020.
