NEW / THREAD:

I heard back from the George W. Bush Library about my #FOIA request for Brett Kavanaugh's White House records.

They've finished processing the documents regarding his nomination & appointment to the DC Court of Appeals.
.
2/ They tell me that all of those documents have been posted here:

georgewbushlibrary.smu.edu/en/Research/Di…

They also posted *lists* of the records, down to the folder, from his time as Staff Secretary and Associate WH Counsel.
.
3/ The accompanying email also noted: "For information concerning future openings, see the letters of notification of intent to release Presidential records at archives.gov/foia/pra-notif…."
.
4/ They didn't say it, but I'm assuming that they're still processing the records from his time as Staff Sec and Associate Counsel.

For now, we have the detailed inventories of those boxes.
.
5/ Backstory: Several Dem Senators filed a FOIA request for Kavanaugh's WH records in August.

I filed a piggyback request on their request. In theory, I should get whatever they get.

Here's the crux of the letter from the GW Bush Library:
6/ They also sent a list of the Presidential Records Act restrictions (i.e, the PRA equivalent of FOIA exemptions), which includes the ones they invoked:
7/ They also sent me a finding aid for Kavanaugh's DC Circuit nomination records, which doesn't appear to be posted on the page with the records themselves.

So I'll be posting that in a few minutes. I'll update this thread when it's available.
.
8/ I've posted the inventory / finding aid for Kavanaugh's DC Circuit nomination & appointment records here:

The docs themselves are here:
