    Jack Ruby made comments on the morning of President John F Kennedy's assassination to an FBI informant that suggested he knew what was about to take place, according to new records released Friday. Ruby, who was eventually charged with killing Lee Harvey Oswald, asked an FBI informant if he would like to 'watch the fireworks' with him as Kennedy's motorcade drove through downtown Dallas just hours before the assassination took place.

    DB Daily Update ^ | 11.5.2017 | David Blackmon
    In fact, the mainstream news media has monolithically just moved on from reporting on the largest mass shooting in modern times almost altogether. Oh, CNN will occasionally spit out the obligatory meaningless story about Sheriff Joe Lombardo telling a local Las Vegas TV host that he suspects that Paddock’s girlfriend might be hiding something (Gosh, you think?) and that the killer had gambling debts (Wow! What a revelation!), but there is literally no investigative reporting by anyone in the mainstream news media going on related to the mass killing, and hasn’t been since a few days after the event. If...

    Newly released FBI files about the assassination of John F. Kennedy are shedding new light on shooter Lee Harvey Oswald and the bureau chief's efforts to quell conspiracy theories about the fatal shooting of the nation's 35th president. In the chaotic aftermath of the assassination, followed two days later by the murder of Oswald while in police custody, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover vented his frustration in a formerly secret report found in the files. It opened: "There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead." But, reflecting on Oswald less than an hour after he...

    President Trump said that he will release “ALL” of the remaining John F. Kennedy files, after being forced by U.S. spy agencies – of which he has been leery – to withhold thousands of still potentially sensitive documents. "After strict consultation with General Kelly, the CIA and other agencies, I will be releasing ALL JFK files other than the names and addresses of any mentioned person who is still living," Trump tweeted. "I am doing this for reasons of full disclosure, transparency and in order to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest." The National Archives on Thursday released...

    ...this memo from William A. Branigan, an FBI agent who later rose to become chief of the Bureau’s counterintelligence division before he retired in 1976. Branigan’s investigative work was important; he was instrumental in investigations that led to the espionage convictions of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, Col. Rudolph Abel and Kaarlo Tuomi, as well as working the JFK assassination. In the memo below, Branigan is passing on information to William C. Sullivan, who at the time was the head of the FBI’s domestic intelligence division. The information being passed along counts more as rumor than anything else, though perhaps with...

    According to White House officials, Trump accepted that some of the records contained references to sensitive sources and methods used by the intelligence community and law enforcement and that declassification could harm American foreign policy interests. But after having the scope of the redactions presented to him, Trump told aides he did not believe them to be in the spirit of the law.

    The CIA mulled mafia hits on Cuban President Fidel Castro. Someone called the FBI threatening to kill Lee Harvey Oswald a day before Oswald’s murder. And the US examined sabotaging airplane parts heading to Cuba. These assertions are some of many unearthed in newly revealed government documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Following a deadline 25 years in the making, the National Archives on Thursday evening released a horde of JFK files. President Donald Trump blocked the release of some documents at least temporarily, citing national security concerns, leaving researchers, conspiracy theorists and interested onlookers 52...

    “It’s kind of like discovering a dusty box of papers in your parent’s home,” NBC’s Peter Alexander remarks this morning … if your dad was J. Edgar Hoover or James Jesus Angleton. Mostly as promised, the government finally released most of its heretofore secret archive on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy almost exactly fifty-four years ago. After a last-minute objection from the CIA, a small group of documents were withheld for further review, but there’s enough to keep historians busy for a while — including an unknown statement from FBI Director Hoover two days after the assassination.In...

    The White House said Thursday that the National Archives will only partially release a final cache of documents related to the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, as President Trump grants additional time to agencies seeking redactions.Trump is giving agencies an extra six months to review documents, using his authority to grant a waiver under 1992 legislation that established Thursday as a deadline to release nearly all of the 5 million pages of documents relating to the assassination. About 1 percent of the collection was withheld in full by a review commission in the 1990s. Another 11 percent was previously...

    President Trump has issued a memo to executive agencies ordering the release of 2,800 remaining records related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. The files are among the last to be released by the National Archives under a 1992 law that ordered the government to make all remaining documents pertaining to the assassination public. There has long been a trove of conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's death in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, including doubts about whether assassin Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, as the Warren Commission determined in its report the following year. Other files are being...
