LIVE UPDATES CIA Making Last-Minute Redactions To JFK Files
Big League Politics ^ | 10/26/17 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 10/26/2017 3:24:42 PM PDT by markomalley

The JFK Files that are supposed to be released Thursday are currently being held up by intelligence agencies including the CIA and the FBI.

The clock is ticking. President Trump only has until midnight to sign the order to release the documents, which were scheduled to be released on this date pursuant to a commission formed after Oliver Stone’s groundbreaking 1991 film “JFK,” which bravely explored the government’s longstanding cover-up of the real motives behind the assassination.

Some documents might not ever see the light of day, according to Deep State information leaks to the mainstream media:

5:33 PM EASTERN

NBC News reports:

“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 redacted.”

By late Thursday afternoon, the memo specifying which material the CIA, State Department and other agencies still want to keep under wraps had yet not made it to Trump’s desk, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
“There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done,” one official said.

The CIA is asking only for some redactions, not for all the documents to be held, the official said. But the other agencies involved in the process had not yet finished their submissions.”

“There’s a mad scramble going on in the executive branch to get this done.”

Seriously? A last second mad scramble? They had 25 years to get ready!

The FBI under Sessions is pretty much the same as it was under Holder.

Sessions is useless.

There’s a mad scramble going on

When you are a lawyer on the govts dime these things take time, for example almost 54 years in this case.

I think they love “secrets”. Over 50 years and these clowns still can’t let it go.

The main difference was Holder actively worked to subvert America. Sessions sleeps through the process.

But the net effect is the same... you’re absolutely right.

Fox Business is reporting that some number of the documents are being withheld for an additional 6 month review period because the CIA, FBI and maybe others want additional redactions.

If the president releases the documents, what authority does anyone have to redact anything?

I cannot for the life of me understand how anything relating to this can be held back at this point. Our intelligence methods and staff have had a several-times-over complete turnover, and most of the assets involved in those days are dead. There’s nothing that needs hiding any longer at this point — good or bad.

If it were just Oswald, and everything was above board and true and the investigation was exhausted and complete, why in tarnatin did they hold back tens of thousands of documents for many decades?

Today, Rush said that he figured that Mueller was appointed to get rid of evidence of the Uranium One evidence. If that is true, then Sessions must be in on it because his recusal made it all possible.
