What did Tim Inman tell President Scholz, and when did he tell it?

Back when I was naive and optimistic I once told Pres Lariviere that I thought people in Johnson Hall were just telling him what they thought he wanted to hear. He looked at me with a blank face and said “Gee Bill, you think?”.

So let’s find out what Tim Inman has told President Scholz:

Dear Ms Thornton – 

This is a public records request for copies of all briefing materials prepared by the OtP or President’s Office and provided to Incoming President Scholz as part of his presidential transition. 

I ask for a fee waiver on the basis of public interest. I am ccing Tim Inman, as he should have these documents readily at hand and be able to provide them without your office’s usual fees and deliberate delays. 

Thanks,

Typically General Counsel Kevin Reed delays responding to these requests for the max 21 days, presumably because I outed him over his fireman bio. We’ll see if Inman plays along with him.
