From: Liam Knox


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Hampshire Right to Know Law, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of all files, including communications, reports and memos, related to the white nationalist groups "Oathkeepers" and "The Three Percenters/The 3%ers."

I request that I be properly classified as a news media requester. I am an intern for MuckRock, and I am requesting this information in that editorial capacity. MuckRock is widely known for its investigative work as well as historical pieces based on public records requests.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Liam Knox

Mr. Knox,

I am writing in response to your request below. By way of clarification, are the search terms "Oathkeepers" and "The Three Percenters" and "The 3%ers"?

I estimate that it will take approximately 30 days to determine what responsive records that we may have, at which time I will provide an additional estimate of the length of time reasonably necessary to determine their availability for release.

Hi Mr. Hilts,

Yes, those are the search terms! Obviously, any results for "Three Percenters"/"3%ers"/"3 Percenters" without "the" in front would be responsive to my request as well.

Thanks for clarifying! Let me know if you need any further information.

Best,

Liam Knox

Mr. Knox,

Unfortunately, there are no available materials that are responsive to your request. Records have been withheld for the following reasons: records that are exempt from disclosure per RSA 91-A:4, I as records that are not publicly available per RSA 651-F and 28 CFR part 23; records whose disclosure would constitute an invasion of privacy per RSA 91-A:5, IV; records subject to copyright; and records compiled for law enforcement purposes whose disclosure would disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions that could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law, and whose disclosure could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, per 38 Endicott Street North, LLC v. State Fire Marshal, 163 N.H. 656, 661 (2012). This request is considered to be closed.
