Dear Jamie:

I am writing in response to the Right to Know request that you submitted for documents related to Scott Pruitt. Please be advised that it is the long standing position of the New Hampshire Department of Justice that RSA 91-A does not apply to the Governor's Office. Our office responds to such requests as inquiries pursuant to Part I, Article 8 of the New Hampshire Constitution to the extent applicable and, therefore, subject to all privileges and defenses under New Hampshire law.

I have attached all documents in possession of this office that are responsive to your request and subject to disclosure. Certain documents that you requested constitute strategic and deliberative processes under the Executive Privilege, and have therefore been withheld.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Thanks,

John
