I think it has been 20 business days (not including federal holidays) since I sent this request as well as a similar one to the White House. What should I do next?

Jack R-W

It’s the State Department, not much you can do except wait it out. They are understaffed and have a huge backlog of requests, so it’s going to take quite a while.

Andrew Joyce

Real, I have a similar request in to the White House about the same issue. Unlikely I’ll get anything on that right?

Michael Morisy

No, the White House is exempt from FOIA and typically doesn’t respond to requests (there have been a few exceptions, but very few).
