The request has been rejected by the agency.

From: Emma Best

I am appealing the Bureau's assertion that I requested them answer a question, create records, conduct research or draw a conclusion. Rather, I clearly asked the Bureau for a specific range of existing records relating to a specific internal event, based off the FBI's own press release.
