FBI releases Trump-related files before inauguration

By Megan R. Wilson, The Hill, Jan. 19, 2017

The FBI has released a batch of files related to Donald Trump that had been sought through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

The files, released shortly before Trump's inauguration, came in response to requests for information on Trump Shuttle and the Trump Taj Mahal, the billionaire’s now-closed Atlantic City casino. 

In the new release involving Trump, there is also a list of all the FOIA requests filed to the FBI containing the word “Trump,” which include many of his businesses. The results or full texts of any of those requests are not available.

The brief documents contain no substantial information about Trump or his businesses.
