1992 law required the president to release all the government’s documents related to the 1963 assassination by Thursday

The White House has released 2,891 documents related to the assassination of John F. Kennedy that have long been kept secret.

The trove of files was published on the National Archives website on Thursday night, and produced revelations and prompted more questions about the fateful day in Dallas in 1963.

The documents revealed that Lee Harvey Oswald met a KGB agent in Mexico City’s Soviet Embassy two months before the shooting.

An unidentified man also called the FBI and said they were going to kill Oswald – just 24 hours before he was gunned down by Jack Ruby.

But not all of the records were released, because President Trump has kept some back so federal agencies can black out portions.

He is allowing intelligence, law enforcement and military agencies to take the next six months to justify their requests to redact specific pages.

A White House official told during a conference call that while Trump wants to remove the ‘veil’ of secrecy regarding the 1963 killing, he has ‘no choice today but to accept those redactions rather than risk irreversible harm’ to the country.
