To Whom It May Concern:

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

This is a FOIA request for copies of all the DOJ FOIA request that have been quashed under the Glomar Exemption since Rod Rosenstein (former U.S. Attorney for Maryland) was appointed Deputy U.S. Attorney General in 2017.

The requester, Stone is trying to determine if the use of the Glomar Exemption by DOJ is an alleged effort to conceal a pattern and history of misconduct by the Maryland DOJ/FBI
in the death of Assistant U.S. Attorney, Jonathan Luna.

These FOIA requested documents would help clarify whether Deputy U.S. Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein is allegedly engaging in an effort to conceal from public disclosure the many allegations of misconduct involving his former colleagues and/or cronies at the Maryland DOJ/FBI or if the use of the Glomar exemption by DOJ is simply a rare and isolated incident under Rosenstein.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is being made for commercial purposes.

I agree to pay reasonable 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.
