I am appealing the decision to not search for the files that I requested and to instead only release previously released documents. I would have stated if I wanted the search limited in such a way.

From: Michael Best

1. You are required by the OIP to search for new records, and you sent a letter stating that you were performing a new search. Now you are refusing to do any search. Explain why.
2. Even IF the records sent are EVERYTHING, you must re-review and reprocess ALL located pages for releasable material - including reprocessing all the redactions, even if all pages located were previously released.

From: Michael Best

My appeal was granted, yet it seems that FBI refuses to perform the search ordered by OIP.

I am appealing this.
