Good afternoon Mr. Kush,

Reference is made to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request # 1378715-000 for FBI records concerning Frank Joseph Kush. The FBI has located approximately 1,288 pages that are potentially responsive to your request. Once requests go over a certain size, usually in the 50-100 page range, they become increasingly complex, greatly slowing down the time required for processing. Generally the larger the file, the longer it takes to process. Given our current workload and staffing levels, it may be a very long time before you would begin to receive material from this request.

We contact requesters with requests of this size to see if there might be a way to possibly narrow the scope. Is this something you might be willing to consider? If so, please contact me and we can discuss this possibility. We appreciate your patience and hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Ms. Wilson
