President Trump approved the release of approximately 2800 long-classified JFK assassination records Thursday evening. News outlets from around the globe are furiously combing through the files in search of more pieces to the puzzling death of President John F. Kennedy.
A new report reveals Lee Harvey Oswald met with the KGB in Mexico City prior to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Daily Mail UK reports:
Lee Harvey Oswald met a senior KGB agent months before the assassination of John F Kennedy, documents from the newly-released trove have revealed.
Oswald met agent Valeriy Vladimirovich Kostikov in Mexico City’s Soviet embassy two months before the president was shot and killed in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
Kostikov was a senior agent in the 13th Department which was responsible for assassinations.
This was revealed in an intercepted phone call to the Soviet Embassy during which he was heard speaking ‘in broken Russian’.
Another document reveals the FBI was aware of the meeting on October 1 of 1963, more than a month before JFK was killed, meaning Oswald was already on their radar.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the U.S. Government delayed the release of the long awaited ‘JFK Assassination’ files as CIA officials have yet to identify which documents President Trump must sign off on for release.
On Thursday evening, CBS News reported intelligence agents will release 2800 documents and the rest in 180 days from today. According to reports, President Trump is fuming over the delay. According to the White House, President Trump believes intelligence agencies are “not meeting the spirit of the law,” by withholding the JFK files. The decision came after the CIA gave Trump two options; delay the release until every file was certified ‘publishable,’ or risk national security by releasing unevaluated, unredacted files. President Trump selected the former.
