Good afternoon Mr. Mackie,

I'm emailing about your FOIA request, DOJ-2016-005473. We are continuing to process this request, but I wanted to reach out to you regarding the scope - your initial request gives parameters in the form of a date range, but in the interest of sorting through a voluminous amount of emails and getting you quicker results, could you provide a subject scope for your request as well? For instance, "email correspondence between former Attorney General Eric Holder and the email domains "@apple.com" and "@cov.com" between December 1, 2008, and September 14, 2016 pertaining to _________." This would be helpful, as we continue to process your request.

Thank you,

From: Patrick Mackie

Could you focus the request to just @cov.com domain and remove the @apple.com from the request and let me know the scope (or volume) of how many emails that would need to sort through in order to asses the need to potentially focus the request further if needbe.

From: Kochurka, Kimberley (OIP)

Removing "@apple.com" takes a small amount away - there are about 1,300 emails to sort through with that domain removed, without any sort of content parameters.

From: Patrick Mackie

Please narrow the request to Janurary 1st 2014 to the date this request was processed.

Thank you very much!

From: Kochurka, Kimberley (OIP)

We will do this, then. Thank you for your assistance!

From: Patrick Mackie

Thank you very much for being helpful. It is much appreciated!

Look forward to hearing the response.

From: Kochurka, Kimberley (OIP)

Good morning,

We are continuing to process this request - after reworking the date range, that significantly reduced the number of emails to go through. You should have a final response shortly. I can keep you updated, as the request goes through its final stages if this would be helpful for you.

Thank you,

Kim Kochurka

From: Kochurka, Kimberley (OIP)

Good morning,

We are still processing this request - the number of emails have been reduced due to narrowing the date range, but consultations with other offices are required, and we are currently working on that now. If need be, I can go into more detail over the phone - please feel free to call me at 202-616-9712.

Thank you,
