Dear Mr. Scott,

Your request to access any emails that mention, are from, or to, "Trump" or
"Kushner" in the accounts of the Archivist, the Deputy Archivist, or NARA's
General Counsel, will run into the thousands if not more. I would ask that
you explain the types of information that you are seeking. Clearly, as I
mentioned in previous correspondence, you are not interested in any news
articles that are received by NARA's employees (unless commented on by
them).

Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss your request.

Kind regards,

Joseph A. Scanlon
FOIA & Privacy Act Officer
National Archives and Records Administration
Office of General Counsel

From: Taylor Amarel Scott

Mr. Scanlon,

If you were to limit it to the following parameters would it be a reasonable search?

1.) Contains the keyword "Kushner". (You can ignore the keyword "Trump");
2.) Is not a media article sent to to david.ferriero@nara.gov, debra.wall@nara.gov, or garym.stern@nara.gov;
3.) Also contains one of the words “project", "deleted", or "finance".
4.) Is between October 1, 2016 to Present Day.

Although not the main purpose of this request, I am seeking information regarding the NARA's leadership's interaction with individuals discussing or working on behalf of Kushner or the extended Trump family as a whole. If the above search parameters results in lesser quantity of results please let me know and we can proceed.

Sincerely Yours,
Taylor Scott Amarel

From: Taylor Amarel Scott

As a correction to my former email, item #3 should read:

3.) Also contains one of the following text strings “project", "delete", or "finance".

I would like to change "deleted" to "delete" in order to catch both "delete" and "deleted" in the search query.
