Thank you

Ms. Woodland,

There are multiple Justice Department press releases stating that the Central California Darknet Strike Force involves, among other agencies, the USPIS.

See: https://www.justice.gov/usao-edca/pr/two-brooklyn-men-indicted-distributing-heroin-and-cocaine-dark-web-marketplace-alphabay and https://www.justice.gov/usao-edca/pr/fentanyl-and-heroin-sold-dark-web-marketplace

Are the DOJ reports wrong?

From: FOIA - Inspection Service

Please be advised that the Freedom of Information Act is a records and documents statute that permits access only to federal agency records, not information.

Concerning your latest queries, you are advised that the Freedom of Information Act does not require an agency to answer questions in order to satisfy the requests of individuals. Therefore, I respectfully decline to comply with this aspect of your request.

Thank you,

Tiffanie Woodland

I am filing an appeal to the decision that claims the USPIS has no records relating to the Central California Darknet Strike Force, an inter-agency task force dedicated to combating the use of dark web marketplaces and digital currency to distribute narcotics and launder money.

The Department of Justice website said plainly multiple times that the USPIS was involved with the task force: https://www.justice.gov/usao-edca/pr/two-brooklyn-men-indicted-distributing-heroin-and-cocaine-dark-web-marketplace-alphabay and https://www.justice.gov/usao-edca/pr/fentanyl-and-heroin-sold-dark-web-marketplace. The USPIS was involved in this task force.

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Patrick Howell O'Neill
