JFK files LIVE: KGB claim of Johnson plot to kill Kennedy, FBI bid to kill Castro - LATEST

Donald Trump has released 2,800 classfied files which reveal more than ever before on the assassination of John F Kennedy.
The documents were published on the National Archives late last night and since analysts and journalists have been pouring over the files and approximately 5 million pages.
Trump has however yielded to pressure from government agencies and special services to withhold 300 files.
Congress had ordered in 1992 that all records relating to the investigation into Kennedy's death should be open to the public, and set a final deadline of Oct. 26, 2017, for the entire set to be made public.
Trump had confirmed this week that he would allow for the opening of the documents, "subject to the receipt of further information."
Administration officials told reporters on a conference call that Trump ordered government agencies to study the redactions in withheld documents over the next 180 days to determine whether they needed to remain hidden from the public. After the review, Trump expected such withholdings to be rare.
The White House said remaining records with redactions would be released "on a rolling basis" in the coming weeks.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations found that it was unlikely Cuba would not kill Kennedy in retaliation for the CIA's attempt on Castro's life as it was "not worth it."
“The Committee does not believe Castro would have assassinated President Kennedy, because such an act, if discovered, would have afforded the United States the excuse to destroy Cuba,” the draft report states.
“The risk would not have been worth it.”
9.40am update: $100,000 to kill Castro and $20,000 Che Guevara
Another FBI memo on Castro has revealed the sum that was touted to kill the Cuban dictator.
A 1964 FBI memo describes a meeting in which Cuban exiles tried to set a price on the heads of Fidel Castro, Raul Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara. “It was felt that the $150,000 to assassinate FIDEL CASTRO plus $5,000 expense money was too high,” the memo noted.
At a later meeting, they settled on lower sums: $100,000 for Fidel, $20,000 for Raul and $20,000 for Che.
