FOIA the Trump Administration

FOIA requests regarding the Trump administration and transition.

While the Office of the White House is exempt from FOIA, its appointees are not, and you can help us FOIA them. This is a project to collaborate on filing requests regarding the Trump administration, with a particular focus on Donald J Trump’s top political appointees as well as information that can be gathered. The focus of these requests is not just the ongoing work of the administration, but also documents that highlight the background of various officials in the new administration, including the President Elect himself.

To join the project, send an email to michael@muckrock.com, or join us on Slack by entering your information here.
