       Dear Acting Director Maguire:

       By correspondence dated September 24, 2019, Congressman Adam B. Schiff, Chairman, Permanent
       Select Committee on Intelligence, formally requested that our client appear before the committee
       for a voluntary interview on Thursday, September 26, 2019. By correspondence dated September 24,
       2019, Senator Richard Burr, Chairman, and Senator Mark R. Warner, Vice Chairman, Senate Select
       Committee on Intelligence, formally requested that no later than Friday, September 27, 2019, we
       make our client available for a closed, bipartisan interview with Committee counsel.

       In order to comply with the requests, I reaffirm my request for direction on how our client can
       proceed in accordance with appropriate security practices per 50 U.S.C.   3033(k) (5)(D) (ii) (II).
