Trump plans to release classified JFK documents to the public

Trump said on Saturday that he plans to release government documents about JFK's assassination to the general public. Trump wants to make these documents available to the people so there is full transparency. Trump wants to make it look like there is nothing to hide nor hold back to the public. However, I believe actions like this will cause a slippery slope. Yes, I believe the general public should have some basic knowledge about these events but once you give them top-secret documents, where will it end? The public would want even more involvement and start a "Pandora box effect" on wanting to know more secrets. There is a reason why their is a clear distinction between the general public and government officials. Sometimes, less is more.
