To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the first 50 or fewer pages (via the small processing track) of:
- e-mail, text, SMS, MMS, instant, or physically written messages sent by FBI employees to Donald Trump or any employee, officer, or appointee of the Executive Office of the President of the United States (or its direct or indirect subordinate units) expressing support for terminating former FBI Director James Comey (with an initial sent timestamp between January 20, 2017 and May 11, 2017 inclusive) and all replies to such messages (regardless of date).

I draw your attention to pg. 72 of Volume 2 of the Special Counsel's report (https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf) stating: "The President said he had received "hundreds" of messages from FBI employees indicating their support for terminating Comey" with a footnote referring to "McCabe 5/10/17 Memorandum, at 1." suggesting that such records should exist.

This request is not being made for commercial purposes. Every response (including all disclosed records) you send may be automatically and immediately made visible to the general public via the MuckRock.com system (though I am not a MuckRock representative).

Please provide the original electronic form of the requested records, preserving for example all email headers and metadata, except those that must be redacted according to law.

Please provide only those records that can be provided without any fees and/or please apply a fee waiver.

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.

Sincerely,

Anonymous
