Communications

From: Andrew McGill

To Whom It May Concern:

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

— Any written communication directed to the agency’s executive leadership from a member of the Trump administration transition team, the Trump campaign, or a member of the Trump family, and received on or after Nov. 9, 2016. Written communication includes letters and memos. Members of the Trump family include Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, and Jared Kushner.
— All electronic correspondence received by an agency employee on or after Nov. 9, 2016 from any email address originating from the following domains: “donaldtrump.com”, “donaldjtrump.com” or “ptt.gov.”

I’m a member of the news media, and as such, this request is made as part of news gathering and not for commercial use. As a journalist, I request a waiver of all fees, as the disclosure of the requested information is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government and is not primarily in my commercial interest. Communications and requests from the incoming administration to federal agencies signal policy directions and are of immediate public interest.

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,

Andrew McGill
