U.S. Government: Hasten the 180-day deadline on the remaining JFK Assassination Records

This petition had 24 supporters

On October 26, 2017, President Donald Trump and the U.S. government released most but not all files relating to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

Some of these documents have remained a secret because various federal agencies have petitioned the President to prevent their release due to various "security reasons". In response, President Trump gave these agencies a 180-day window to submit responses as to why some of the documents must remain redacted.

This 180-day window should be shortened. Americans all across the country are extremely curious about what happened on that fateful day, and the redacted documents may hold key events that could lead to the answer. After all, why withhold documents of an assassination that happened more than fifty years ago? Such old events hold little influence in modern politics and international affairs.

Moreover, these powerful federal agencies could easily write a concise report within 180 days and have lots of time to spare. Why give them half a year of time to write and revise a simple explanation? Meanwhile, many Americans will wait anxiously for an answer. A 90-day or 120-day  window seems much more reasonable. Please do not keep "We the People" waiting.

By signing this petition, you are requesting President Donald Trump and the U.S. Executive Branch to hasten the deadline and to possibly release more documents on the JFK assassination.
