I am appealing the decision to not perform an actual search and provide only preprocessed records, despite the explicit text of my request. " If previously released records are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release." Elsewhere in the request, I point out that only SOME of the responsive records were previously released. The Bureau's blatant failure to even attempt to perform the search that was explicitly requested and well within the scope of the statute and case law is improper and must be remanded to the FBI for an actual search of the records, which their own letter admits they did not look for and that OGA references were not included, despite also being well within the scope of the original request.
