Communications

From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records on, about, mentioning, or concerning Russell Charles Means (November 10, 1939 – October 22, 2012). Proof of death is not required because his 2012 death from esophageal cancer is common knowledge.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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,

Shawn Musgrave

From: Shawn Musgrave

My request is entirely separate from Mr. Nash's. The FBI cannot send one cost letter in response to separate FOIA requests, nor am I able to respond to a cost letter addressed to another requester.

In light of the FBI's frustrating breach of simple protocol despite my repeated indication that I have not received communications, I reassert my request for a fee waiver. This request has been in limbo for an unacceptable amount of time.

Respectfully,
Shawn Musgrave
