PRESS STRATEGY

I am a career journalist with work that has appeared at The Daily Beast among other publications. I am willing to pay any reasonable expenses associated with this request, however, as the purpose of the requested disclosure is in full conformity with the statutory requirements for a waiver of fees, I formally request such a waiver.

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,

Paul Gottinger

Good Afternoon, Mr. Gottinger.

Today records will be sent in reference to FOIA Request 50310 through our Secure Email File Transfer System (SEFT) since the records are too large to send through Outlook.
Occasionally emails from SEFT are sent to the Spam folder due to security preferences so I wanted to give you a heads up before the files are sent via SEFT.

Thank you,
