I sent two letters to U.S. International Trade Commission General Counsel Lyn M. Schlitt, Esq.: the one reprinted below; and a second dated July 9, 1997. The second letter prompted Lyn Schlitt to contact the Federal Protective Service, which directed me not to write any more letters to Lyn Schlitt.

RE: Presidential Security Threat
Dear General Counsel Schlitt:
The enclosed computer disc contains documentation for your information in your capacity as General Counsel of the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC).
Attorney managers of my former employer, the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, have filed sworn statements with the District of Columbia Department of Human Rights that my belief that I was a victim of job discrimination and harassment while I was employed at the firm in the capacity of legal assistant, during the period June 13, 1988 to October 29, 1991, was the product of a pathological mental process (prominent in the psychotic disorders) that is associated with a risk of violent conduct.
Further, my former direct supervisor at Akin Gump advised her employees at the time of my job termination, on October 29, 1991, that I might have been disposed to commit a homicidal attack on the firm. The firm arranged to have that supervisor's office suite secured against a possible homicidal attack in the period after my termination.
During my tenure, in August 1989, an Akin Gump co-worker stated to me: "We're all afraid of you. We're all afraid you're going to buy a gun, bring it in and shoot everybody."
I have been under investigation by the U.S. Secret Service as a potential security threat to President Clinton and Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton. I was interrogated by Special Agents at the Washington Field Office of the U.S. Secret Service on two occasions in regard to fears that I might pose a risk of harm to the President and Mrs. Clinton: in December 1994 and again in February 1996.
During the period August 1993 to December 1994 I was a student at The Washington College of Law of The American University, where I attained the degree of Master of Laws (LL.M.) in the field of international trade law. In partial fulfillment of the requirements of my degree program I performed an internship at the USITC (Office of General Counsel) during the period January 1984 to June 1984.
If the USITC has any information that I engaged in any violent conduct or that I brought firearms or weapons of any kind onto USITC premises during my tenure, I request that you so advise the Office of U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in connection with the enclosed declaration, dated April 24, 1995.
Federal law enforcement authorities, particularly the U.S. Secret Service, will want to know whether the USITC can provide any evidence that I ever threatened the President of the United States during my tenure.
I know that you will appreciate the seriousness of this matter and will review the matter thoroughly with American University law school Dean Claudio Grossman (202 885 2600); Michael Stein, Esq., former USITC General Counsel during the relevant period; and former assistant USITC General Counsel Michael P. Mabile, Esq. (202 508 5812), who served as my supervisor.
I have forwarded a body of documents pertinent to this matter to the U.S. Department of Justice (Criminal Division: John C. Keeney, Jr., Assistant Attorney General) as well as the U.S. Secret Service (Philip C. Leadroot, Special Agent), and the Office of U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia (Eric H. Holder, Jr.).
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
