Please be advised that HUD will comply with your request to the extent permissible by law. Any records not subject to an exemption will be forwarded to you promptly upon completion of the Department's search and review process. However, your request is too broad and vague to be processed.

Hello,

I am requesting all emails between employees of this executive agency and employees of Fox News (employees possessing email addresses that end in @foxnews.com) from the period starting on January 20, 2017 until the present day. The emails must contain the word "Carson," meaning that they relate to interview requests and scheduled interviews with the secretary.

Hello,

I can submit an electronic request for Secretary Carson's emails that relate to interview requests and scheduled interviews with the secretary from January 20, 2017, until the present day.
