Dear Mr. Stone:
This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request dated August 29, 2017. Your request was assigned FOIAonline tracking number NARA-NGC-2017-000848, and the above internal tracking number.  In your request you are seeking:

2. A copy of any Code of Ethics that Rod Rosentein was required to sign as an Assistant U.S. Attorney under Lynne Battaglia, U.S. Attorney for Maryland and as Deputy U.S. Attorney General.
The first part of your request has been forwarded to the Special Access and FOIA Office, Office of Research Services, for processing.  You will be assigned a separate FOIA case number from them.
