Dear Mr. Whittle,

This concerns two FOIA requests submitted to the Mail Referral Unit of the Department of Justice on October 29, 2017, seeking emails to and from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The first request seeks all emails between the dates of May 4, 2015 and June 27, 2016. The second request seeks all emails between the dates of May 4, 2015 and June 27, 2016, "specifically regarding Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, the Clinton email investigation, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Clinton Foundation Investigation."

The purpose of my email is to inquire as to whether the second request intends to narrow the first request? In that case, your requests would collectively be seeking emails between the dates of May 4, 2015 and June 27, 2016, specifically pertaining to the above-referenced matters.

Please confirm the above at your earliest convenience.

Thank you very much for your time.
Best,

James Matthew Smith
Attorney-Advisor

U.S. Department of Justice

From: Kenneth Whittle

The second request can be used to narrow the first request.
