(b) Related solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of the Board.
(c) Specifically exempted from disclosure by another federal statute, provided that such statute:

(2) Would deprive a person of a right to a fair trial or an impartial adjudication;

(5) Would disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions, or would disclose guidelines for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions if such disclosure could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law; or
(6) Could reasonably be expected to endanger the life or physical safety of any individual.
