I would like to appeal this determination.

There is reason to believe that many of the emails sent to whistleblower@consumerfinance.gov are not related to protected whistleblower disclosures.

Therefore, I would request the FOIA request be processed and the CFPB only redact information that would reveal personal data, however, other information such as meta data, greetings, filler text, etc should be released.
