JFK Files: British Reporter Received “Big News” in Advance of the Shooting
A British reporter received an anonymous phone call 25 minutes before President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and was told that “big news” were coming
“The caller said only that the Cambridge News reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news and then hung up,” states the document from former CIA
The reporter was not identified in the November 26 report and “never received a call of this kind before and MI5 said that he is known to them as a sound and loyal person with no security record.”
Right after the official death of Kennedy, the reporter told the Cambridge police that he had received the call and the police further informed MI5. “The important point is that the call was made, according to MI5 calculations, about 25 minutes before the President was shot.”
On Thursday, Donald Trump blocked the release of hundreds of records regarding the assassination of President Kennedy and said that he does not have a choice taking into consideration the possible irreversible harm that it may cause if he were to allow all records to come to light now. The files are currently under a six-month review.
However, a CIA spokesperson mentioned that the agency had released all documents related to the assassination, except for 18,000. Moreover, it promised that the record would be made available.
