The FBI said I have to explain the public interest in releasing records of death threats against a U.S. Senator. Does anyone have an example of a winning response to something like this? Thanks -Troy

That’s really weird, since I’ve seen them give out similar documents with no problem:

Maybe pointing to previous mainstream coverage of these issues would help?

Do you have a link to the request/response? Is this over fee issues or release more generally?

I’ll try pointing to previous reporting efforts - it’s not about fees or anything. 

Here’s the link
