To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

• all audio recordings of CFPB Director Richard Cordray, speaking with a journalist or journalists, or speaking before an audience, which audio recordings were made by or maintained by or are in in the custody of either Director Cordray and/or any member of the CFPB media team and/or press team.

I wish to exclude all audio of testimony to congress or any audio of any other publicly available hearing.

In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a representative of the news media affiliated with The Washington Examiner.

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 "thumb drive" 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,

Todd Shepherd

From: McDonald, Ryan (CFPB)

Good Afternoon Mr. Shepherd,

The CFPB's Office of Technology and Innovation located a total of 4 videos totaling 16GB. Due to the size of the videos I am unable to send via email. I am planning on obtaining a SD card and send you the videos by mail.

Are you willing to pay for the cost of the 32GB SD card? I estimate the cost to be around $20.00. Since you have been classified in the news media category, no cost for the search or review time will be added into your request.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Mr. McDonald:

Thanks for the reply.

I am willing to pay the $20, but before we do that, I just want to make sure that the videos you describe aren't 1) of any public testimony or 2) videos that are already published on a CFPB website or distribution platform like YouTube.

Thanks,

ts

From: McDonald, Ryan (CFPB)

The videos are not public testimony and not published on the CFPB’s YouTube channel, however, I believe members of the public and private companies also speak during these videos. I am unaware if these events were open to the press.

Let me know if you would like to proceed.

From: Todd Shepherd

Dear Raynell Lazier:

Thank you for your response.

I request that the documents located and cited by CFPB be indexed by individual record and comply with Vaughn v. Rosen, 484 F.2d 820 (D.C. Cir. 1973), by providing information sufficient for a reasonable person to be able to ascertain whether the record sought is actually exempt from disclosure.

“A Vaughn Index must: (1) identify each document withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption.” Citizens Commission on Human Rights v. FDA, 45 F.3d 1325, 1326 n.1 (9th Cir. 1995)

Thank you,
