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

Please include a cross-reference search for these organizations.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

From: Michael Best

Hi,

Thanks so much for your help with this request! I really appreciate it. I see now that my last message was sent after you had sent the documents but before they arrived.

Sincerely,
Michael Best

From: Michael Best

I am appealing the integrity of the search. Specifically, no search was performed and only previously released documents were provided. Case law establishes that a search must be performed of all systems reasonably believed to potentially contain materials. No search was done of the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, nor was a search conducted for cross-reference records.

I am also appealing the redactions.

Thank you.

The FBI appears to have sent some interim materials on March 28, 2016 - not 2018. It's been more than two years. Please confirm you didn't send something two months ago as claimed in your previous email. Thanks!

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation

A release consisting of 191 pages of material were mailed out on March 28, 2018.
