Sunday is the 10th anniversary of the operation to kill OBL

Here's the inside story, based on incredible CIA docs I obtained via #FOIA, revealing the CIA's role in helping to produce the controversial movie about the operation, Zero Dark Thirty.…
The CIA's internal watchdog identified as a potential violation of federal criminal law the bribery of public officials and witnesses by the filmmakers who showered the CIA officers with gifts.
The CIA's internal watchdog documents I obtained said the agency's working relationship with the filmmakers began in 2010, a year before bin Laden was killed.

Classic US District Court Judge James Boasberg opening line in an opinion he just issued in my & @_rshapiro @PropOTP long running #FOIA case for the FBI's files on Trump predating his presidency
Partial win for us and partial win for the government. Good decision on b7e in our favor.

Thank you for your hard work on this @_LightLaw!
One thing FBI is withholding is amazing: a case number written on a very old newspaper article about Trump & his criticism of then-Gov Ed Rendell.

investigation with charges currently pending”

#SunshineWeek document SCOOP/THREAD: Our @BuzzFeedNews members got a first look at these records I requested last May but now I'm sharing w/everyone

Here are all of Richard Grenell's emails from his brief stint as acting DNI

In some ways, Grenell’s emails are an extension of his Twitter persona and showcase his spats with reporters

He refers to @ZcohenCNN as a "drama queen," demands to speak to @JonathanLanday's editor regarding an accurate story he wrote that he said was "outrageously slanted"
One email sent to Grenell shows an official in his office lamented their inability to “shape the narrative” in a @julianbarnes @adamgoldmanNYT @npfandos story about Grenell’s plans for ODNI, to which he responded, “Washington is highly toxic these days.”
