Justice Dept Responds to FOIA Request With Completely Redacted Document

But no, it didn’t release any actual information. Or even any words or letters. As one Reddit comment put it, “[the document is] so transparent it’s completely invisible.”

    This is what the most transparent administration in history looks like.

    15 pages of black ink, not even the word 'The' could be released from it.
