In response to your recent question regarding your FOIA request, I have received the relevant documents and am in the process of reviewing them. That process usually takes one to two weeks, because of the number of requests that we receive. I anticipate getting these to you within two weeks. I will be in touch if it takes longer than that.

Hi,

Thanks for getting in touch again. Your latest query arrived during the shutdown, so I'm just getting to it now.

The documents you requested include White House equities. These have to be cleared by the White House before they can be sent to you. I've sent them to the White House for review and am now awaiting a reply. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you how long that will take, but as soon as I hear back from the White House, I will respond to your request.

Hi, again, CJ,
