Former Journalist Brian D. Hill's FOIA Appeal filings released on Internet Archive

Former Journalist of USWGO Alternative News, Brian D. Hill, has filed a FOIA Appeal and has threatened a FOIA lawsuit, according to newly released FOIA Appeal filings, that his family has released to be on public record at the Internet Archive.
WASHINGTON - April 7, 2017 - PRLog -- Brian D. Hill, the former news reporter and Journalist of USWGO Alternative News blog, his website that had once existed from 2009 to late August 2012, has tasked his family with releasing Brian's FOIA Appeal filings to a trustworthy friend to release on public record here today. The filings are made public on the Internet Archive, links below at the end of the article.

FOIA stands for the Freedom of Information Act. Brian's FOIA request was originally filed with the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) of the U.S. Department of Justice (U.S. DOJ). Brian had appealed it to the Office of Information Policy (OIP) with well proven allegations that the U.S. Attorney did withheld records from his FOIA request while lying in the EOUSA FOIA response letter that "0 records were withheld in full (WIF)". Brian has asserted in his FOIA Appeal filings that either the U.S. Attorney has lied to the DOJ FOIA paralegal and secretly withheld exculpatory evidence that can help to prove the actual innocence of Brian, or that the U.S. Attorney has illegally purged evidence records that contain exculpatory evidence which again can help to prove the actual innocence of Brian Hill.

Brian has threatened a FOIA Lawsuit in one of his letters, and has stated Federal case-law that he claims supports his legal basis for his FOIA Request and his Appeal. He also is currently in mediation with the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) hoping to avoid having to file a lawsuit just to prove his case that the U.S. Attorney may be illegally covering up evidence which is favorable to the Defense in his criminal case.

His mother has emailed me the documents, which were just made public today. Proof of that was also uploaded to the Archive, to prevent the U.S. Attorney from starting up any more baseless accusations regarding his beliefs that he thinks Brian is the one behind every web posting on the internet about his wrongful conviction. Brian has a lot of friends, some that are ex-alternative media and some still active in alternative media and in the truth movement. The U.S. Attorney is more concerned of any media coverage of his wrongful prosecution rather than simply caring about Brian's compliance with his Probation.

Brian has threatened lawsuits against the U.S. DOJ as well. He has also faxed evidence to The White House, and copy of it was faxed to the OIP informing them of possible collusion between the U.S. Attorney and his Defense Attorney that forced him into signing a guilty plea deal for the crime that he says he didn't commit. Legalwise, Brian has asserted a good point for his FOIA Request, a legal basis of "needing to prove actual innocence" and his Due Process as cause for requesting his entire discovery evidence under FOIA. If he does sue and succeed in his suit, then other criminal Defendants wrongfully convicted in Federal Courthouses may also be able to sue for their discovery evidence packets to fight for acquittals.
