From: Liam Knox

To Whom It May Concern:

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

A copy of the CIA's files on Juan Guaido, the current President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, from 2012-2019. In particular, I'm interested in correspondences and contact that the agency may have had with Mr. Guaido, and in documents containing Guaido's name along with the terms:
Regime change
Nicolas Maduro

I request that I be properly classified as a news media requester. I am an editorial intern for MuckRock, and I am requesting this information in that editorial capacity. MuckRock is widely known for its investigative work as well as historical pieces based on public records requests.

I plan to use these documents to explore the CIA's support for opposition groups in Venezuela, and the U.S. government's efforts to promote regime change in the country.

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.
