The past week has been rough on JFK assassination buffs with President Donald Trump promising (threatening) to let loose some 50,000 documents related to the assassination. 

On Saturday, Trump pulled the curtain back slightly, revealing on Twitter that "subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened."

Under a law signed 25 years ago by then President George H. W. Bush, himself a figure in the events of Nov. 22, 1963, Trump has until Oct. 26 to act. If he does not, some 50,000 documents go public.

The White House has remained silent about the president's intentions. A White House official speaking on background told the Houston Chronicle's Kevin Diaz last week that he is "working closely" with the National Archives "to ensure that the maximum amount of data can be released to the public" while "protecting national security."

Trump's caveat, "subject to the receipt of further information," worries advocates of full disclosure.

Some see this as just another distraction from an administration that has been fraught with them.  

What does this mean for the hordes of people who endlessly argue over the who, why, when, what, and how of one of the worst moments of the 20th century in America?

Those people have never subscribed to the generally accepted story of lone nut Lee Harvey Oswald seeking out attention by killing a man in his prime, full of vigor and great ideals.

The National Archives is scheduled to release previously classified documents from the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

This new set of documents set to be released on Trump's order will likely not change anyone's mind, on either side of the fence. The whole event and saga surrounding it will always be fodder for arguments and discussions.

Just visit Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas any given weekend or anniversary of the assassination and listen to the believers, non-believers, and agnostics argue over who fired those fatal shots nearly 54 years ago.

One of the researchers that lead the fight for the truth to be revealed regarding the assassination, Jim Marrs, died this past summer. He worked nearly his whole life documenting what he saw as shadowy goings on behind the scenes that day in Dallas. 

The National Archives, the government agency legally responsible for the pending "document dump," has sought to tamp down expectations. According to its website, about 88 percent of the records in the 5-million-page JFK collection already have been made public.

Another 11 percent have been released in part with "sensitive" portions removed. That leaves about 1 percent of the trove that remains out of public view.

Will we find out that Lee Harvey Oswald preferred Pepsi to Coca-Cola? That his socks were brown that day? Maybe Jack Ruby's hat size will finally be released. 

While officials can't comment on the contents of the records, the agency's website says "we assume that much of what will be released will be tangential to the assassination events."

Even if there is a magical collection of facts that come out of this newest dump of information, don't expect the fervor around the assassination to die down any time soon. The very assassination itself marked a painful and bloody end of an era in America.

Gerald Posner, the author of "Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK," told CNN recently that this will not change anything in the minds of those who have always disagreed with the Warren Report and other so-called definitive reports on the assassination and the moving parts surrounding it.

"Anybody who thinks this is going to turn the case on its head and suddenly show that there were three or four shooters at Dealey Plaza — it's not the case," Posner said. More likely is that the documents offer greater detail about the CIA's investigation of Kennedy's murder, such as a trip Oswald took to Mexico a few weeks before Kennedy was shot.

The seeds of distrust in our government were planted soon after Air Force One left Dallas with a new president aboard and the deceased one in the back inside a casket. The questions that Americans, especially those who remember November 22, 1963, still have about the murder will linger for no doubt centuries to come handed down like family heirlooms.
