From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the integrity of the denial in its entirety, as the government has repeatedly confirmed its interest in CyberBerkut. As such, while the Bureau may exempt specific records it must conduct a search and review for segregable records and criminal investigations that are not subject to categorical denial.
