Dear J.P. Brown,

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act request of June
11, 2018, for records in the custody of the National Archives and Records
Administration. Your request was received in this office on June 12 and
assigned FOIA case number RD 57472.

You requested access to case file number 77-HQ-138223, identified by the
FBI as potentially responsive to your request for records relating to
Stephen Reinhardt. My initial assessment confirms that Stephen Reinhardt is
in fact the subject of this file. The file is arranged in three sections,
with two EBFs (Enclosures Behind File) for serials 44 and 75.

We reviewed EBF 75, which consists of approximately 300 pages of Senate
Committee on the Judiciary deposition transcripts of Joseph Hauser and SA
William Fleming, from June-July 1980, and released the EBF in full. You or
your representative may now view EBF 75 at the National Archives facility
in College Park, Maryland. Please contact Jessica Hartman at least one week
in advance of your visit at specialaccess_foia@nara.gov to arrange to see
the records. If you cannot visit our College Park facility, you may order a
reproduction copy at the cost of $.80 per page. Please contact Ms. Hartman
to place an order.

77-HQ-138223 Sections 1-3 and EBF 44 consist of approximately 500 pages,
compiled as part of an internal security investigation conducted between
June 1979 and October 1980. These portions of the file require further
screening for categories of information exempted from disclosure under the
terms of the Freedom of Information Act, prior to public release. In
particular, there are documents that may be redacted to protect the
identities of confidential sources, including FBI informant codes and
informant file numbers.

Requests for FBI case files that do not exceed 500 pages are assigned to
our first-tier processing queue. Taking into consideration our existing
backlog, the estimated time required to complete the processing of your
request is approximately 24 months from the date of this letter.

To notify this office of a change in your contact information or to track
the status of your request, please telephone 301-837-3190 <(301)%20837-3190>
or e-mail specialaccess_foia@nara.gov. If you have specific questions
regarding the subject of your request, please contact me directly at
megan.dwyre@nara.gov. All communications concerning this request should
reference your case tracking number RD 57472.

If you are not satisfied with our action on this request and would like the
opportunity to discuss our response, you may contact our FOIA Public
Liaison for assistance:

Accessioned Executive Branch Records – Washington, DC Area
FOIA Requester Service Center: 301-837-3190 <(301)%20837-3190>

Dear Mr. Brown,

This is a follow-up to your Freedom of Information Act request RD 57472 of
June 11, 2018, for records in the custody of the National Archives and
Records Administration.

After further consultation, we determined that EBF 75, which consists of
approximately 300 pages of Senate Committee on the Judiciary deposition
transcripts of Joseph Hauser and SA William Fleming, from June-July 1980,
requires additional review for information exempted from disclosure under
the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, prior to public release. In
particular, there are documents that may be redacted to protect the privacy
of living individuals.

The review of the enclosure will be completed with the rest of the file,
which as we indicated in our initial response, is in our first-tier
processing queue. Again, taking into consideration our existing backlog,
the estimated time required to complete the processing of your request is
approximately 24 months from the date of the response letter.

To notify this office of a change in your contact information or to track
the status of your request, please telephone 301-837-3190 <(301)%20837-3190>
or e-mail specialaccess_foia@nara.gov. If you have specific questions
regarding the subject of your request, please contact me directly at
megan.dwyre@nara.gov. All communications concerning this request should
reference your case tracking number RD 57472.
