I am appealing the integrity of the search, as I provided a specific file number that could be located quickly. No attempt was made to locate this file and it was not even listed on the items that they searched for and considered searching for.

Additionally, all search fees should be waived as I am a member of the news media who has written widely read (100,000+ readers) articles on matters of law enforcement and national security, such as http://andmagazine.com/us/1431865273.html and I have an open agreement with AND Magazine to publish future articles of mine.

Therefore, I request that the FOIA be remanded to FBI for additional searching.

I am appealing the integrity of the search, as I provided a specific file number that could be located quickly. No attempt was made to locate this file and it was not even listed on the items that they searched for and considered searching for. I also appeal the decision not to search for files on the Democratic National Committee, which was the first thing listed in my FOIA request.

Additionally, all search fees should be waived as I am a member of the news media who has written widely read (100,000+ readers) articles on matters of law enforcement and national security, such as http://andmagazine.com/us/1431865273.html and I have an open agreement with AND Magazine to publish future articles of mine.

Therefore, I request that the FOIA be remanded to FBI for additional searching.
