President Trump is reportedly preparing to declassify the US government’s secret files on the assassination of John F. Kennedy – potentially ending more than 50 years of mystery.

JFK was shot dead in Dallas in 1963 and Lee Harvey Oswald was named the killer in the official version of events.

But the assassination has been shrouded in conspiracy theories for decades that have cast doubt on what really happened on that fateful day in Texas.

The president said yesterday on Twitter: “The long anticipated release of the #JFKFiles will take place tomorrow. So interesting!”

 

The documents are due for release today under a 25-year secrecy law from 1992, though Trump does have the power to delay this release if he wants to.
