To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

In November 2014, FBI Director James Comey acknowledged in a letter to The New York Times that one of his agents had impersonated an Associated Press reporter during a 2007 Timberline High School investigation. I’d like to request the following information:

1. A copy of the email sent from the “reporter” to the suspect.
2. A copy of the “draft story” the suspect was asked to review.
3. A copy of the link the suspect was asked to click on.

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/07/opinion/to-catch-a-crook-the-fbis-use-of-deception.html

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,

Runa Sandvik
