To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any documents related to the INSLAW/PROMIS affair in Independent Counsel James McKay's collection of documents. I specifically want these documents:
Box 210: Miscellaneous notes on INSLAW
Box 383: Wallach INSLAW
Box 442: Miscellaneous matters: INSLAW
Box 466: INSLAW/PROMIS:
-(2) blue notebooks with letters from Bill Hamilton
-Letter to Attorney General Thomburgh from Senator William S. Cohen dated 5/25/89
-Court order 2/23/89, re: INSLAW, Inc.
-Handwritten notes: Carol Bruce and Jack Barrett
I ask that any fees be waived on my request as these files are of public importance, and I plan to publish these records online using this platform. (I will not be using these files for commercial purposes). These files are of public importance because they show the inner workings of an independent counsel investigation, something that very few actually get to witness. This is also of public importance because the INSLAW incident is still actively being investigated by the FBI, although it was officially closed in the early 1990's. (https://www.muckrock.com/news/archives/2017/sep/08/doj-promis-part-2/)
(https://www.wired.com/1993/01/inslaw/)(https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/magazine/1992/06/14/the-inslaw-file/03b0362c-81d2-40b9-ac16-bc6a8b12dd3f/?utm_term=.233d5a7a8b38)

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.

Sincerely,

Quashon Avent
