Dear Ms. Kamin:

This letter is in response to your request for information from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which was received in our office on November 6, 2017. In your letter, you requested the following:

* Files pertaining to the amount the Trump campaign committee, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., the Trump Make America Great Again Committee and Trump Victory have raised to date (11/6/17)

* Filed pertaining to expenditures Trump campaign committee, Donald J. Trump for President Inc., the Trump Make America Great Again Committee and Trump Victory have spent to date

* Circulation of emails and text messages from the following addresses and affiliated organizations: contact@victory.donaldtrump.com, contact@action.gop.com, contact@campaigns.rnchq.com

As you may know, the FEC is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), as amended, which governs the financing of federal elections. See 52 U.S.C. § 30106. FECA broadly requires the public disclosure of funds raised and spent to influence federal elections. See 52 U.S.C. § 30104.

Responsive, non-exempt records regarding funds raised and spent by the committees you identified and responsive to Parts 1 and 2 of your request are already publicly available on the agency website. You can access these documents at https://www.fec.gov/data/.

To the extent Part 3 of your request seeks records concerning enforcement matters that remain open, such records would be exempt from disclosure under FOIA Exemption 3(A) pursuant to section 30109(a)(12)(A) of the Federal Election Campaign Act and we can neither confirm nor deny that such records may or may not exist. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(3)(A); 52 U.S.C. § 30109(a)(12)(A).

We are continuing to process Part 4 of your request and will provide responsive non-exempt records if and when they become available. We will send you a final response letter and, if there are responsive non-exempt records they will be attached to that letter and we will provide you with a list of all FOIA exemptions that have been applied to any released records and to any responsive records withheld in their entirety, as well as approximate page counts for any documents withheld pursuant to each FOIA exemption.

Accordingly, your FOIA request is granted in part and denied in part. If you need additional assistance locating information on the FEC’s website, please contact the FEC’s Public Records Office. The FEC’s Public Records Office is located at 999 E Street, NW, Washington, DC 20463, and can be reached directly at (202) 694-1120 or pubrec@fec.gov<mailto:pubrec@fec.gov>.

You may appeal any adverse FOIA determination to the Commission. Any such appeal must be filed in writing and should follow the guidelines set forth in 11 C.F.R. § 4.8. If you have any questions, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at FOIA@fec.gov<mailto:FOIA@fec.gov> or 202-694-1650.
