‘An outrage against democracy’: JFK’s family calls on Biden to release assassination records

Two of John F. Kennedy’s nephews are calling on the Biden administration to release the last collection of classified documents on the former president’s 1963 assassination.

The White House announced late Friday night that it would delay the release of the records from Oct. 26 to Dec. 15 — or longer, if President Joe Biden decides that it’s in the nation’s best interest to keep them confidential.

“It’s an outrage. It’s an outrage against American democracy,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said. “We’re not supposed to have secret governments within the government. How the hell is it 58 years later, and what in the world could justify not releasing these documents?”

“I think for the good of the country, everything has to be put out there so there’s greater understanding of our history,” Patrick Kennedy said.

In 2017, when the documents were supposed to be released, former President Donald Trump delayed it for four years.

Experts were surprised by Biden’s decision to continue shielding the records because he served in the Senate when the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 passed unanimously in Congress.
