Trump keeps some JFK documents sealed as Archives release final batch

President Donald Trump issued an order Thursday keeping some Kennedy assassination records sealed for another 3-1/2 years, as the National Archives released a final batch of 19,045 documents under a 1992 law meant to force most of the records into the light.

Congress in 1992 set a 25-year deadline for release of all remaining documents stemming from John F. Kennedy’s murder in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
