Meanwhile, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the FBI has asked law enforcement agencies to withhold public records in the wake of the Pulse nightclub massacre. In a June 20 letter, the FBI asks other law enforcement agencies to "immediately notify the FBI of any requests your agency received [so] the FBI can seek to prevent disclosure through appropriate channels, as necessary." More than two dozen media outlets, including the Orlando Sentinel, have requested public documents, and a federal lawsuit has been launched to demand their release.
