Release of JFK File Delayed as Deadline Looms


The U.S. government was in danger Thursday of missing the deadline to release a trove of previously classified records from the assassination of President JFK. Adding an unexpected twist to a saga already rife with rumors and conspiracies. The law says the National Archives must release the 35,000 documents by midnight unless President Donald Trump objects on national security grounds. On Thursday evening, U.S. officials said that some material would be released, and other documents would be withheld to give agencies more time to figure out what they want to have redacted.
