To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the white paper or memo prepared in FY 2016 by the National Security Agency/Central Security Service at the U.S. Department of State on the implications to national security of a Donald J. Trump Presidential Administration.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
A no responsive documents response.
This is a formal appeal of the National Security Agency's determination for my FOIA request seeking "a copy of the white paper or memo prepared in FY 2016 by the National Security Agency/Central Security Service at the U.S. Department of State on the implications to national security of a Donald J. Trump Presidential Administration." The agency assigned my request tracking number 100157.
I erroneously included "at the U.S. Department of State" when describing the agency to which I was addressing my request, and it is unclear to me, based on the NSA's response to my request, whether or not the agency understood that my request targeted the National Security Agency/Central Security Service (and not the State Department).
Accordingly, I ask that the agency conduct another search for responsive records, while disregarding the erroneous language about the State Department contained in my original request.
A letter stating that the request appeal has been received and is being processed.
The request has been rejected by the agency.
