    Seeking FBI Investigative File

    Lisette Abdiruhman Newbie

      Good Afternoon, I would like to know how do I find FBI Investigative file No.100-12441? I am looking for Exhibit no. 33 from this document from May 28, 1942 as well as Exhibit 227 from April 7, 1933. I would also like to know if there is access to the full report from 1942 and or do I need a FOIA request for it or both?
