Trump WH to keep visitor logs private

Irune Rengel | 16 Abril, 2017, 10:36

The Times, in collaboration with ProPublica, reported that after analyzing reports from lobbyists and interviews with ethics officials, it appears that at least two of Trump's appointees in the White House may have violated ethics rules.

The announcement comes days after a group of watchdog organizations sued the Trump administration in NY federal court in an attempt to compel the White House to release its visitor logs, which Obama opened up in 2009 after facing a similar court challenge from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, one of the three organizations involved in Monday's suit. "The Obama administration agreed to release the visitor logs in response to our lawsuits, and despite the Trump administration's worry over 'grave national security risks and concerns, ' only positives for the American people came out of them". Americans had to work hard to get Obama to voluntarily disclose the names of White House visitors - there were multiple lawsuits involved - and the Trump administration is now effectively erasing that work. "Americans simply deserve to know who has access to the president and who is working to influence policy at the highest levels".

The logs will be available for request by public, press and scholars five years after Mr Trump leaves office.

However, visitor logs for White House agencies, such as the Office of Management and Budget and the U.S. Trade Representative, may be released under the Freedom of Information Act.

Le Pen Denies France Responsible For Wartime Round-Up Of Jews
Macron is a front-runner - along with Le Pen - in the two-round presidential election that will be held on April 23 and May 7. The Vel' d'Hiv Roundup was a Nazi directed raid and mass arrest of Jews in Paris by the French police on 16 and 17 July 1942.

Congressional Democrats have introduced legislation to require Trump to disclose visitors to any location where he "regularly conducts business" within three months of the visit.

Instead, the Trump Administration is relying on a federal court ruling that most of the logs are "presidential records" and are not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

Under Obama, such records, which were published on a White House-maintained website, were typically disclosed 90 to 120 days after the visit.

This decision, which the administration says will save taxpayers money while cutting down on security and privacy risks, has drawn fast criticism from open government advocates.

The White House is not the only meeting location that watchdog groups are concerned about.

Trump entered office pledging to "drain the swamp" and combat corruption in the nation's Capitol.

Such records catalog when information is submitted to the secret service by an individual who lacks permanent credentials, according to CNN Politics. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington brought the suit.

The logs offer the most comprehensive look at who has access to the president and his team.

Also exempt from disclosure are visitors to places Trump travels to outside Washington, such as his Mar-a-Largo club in Florida, to which he has traveled numerous times since taking office. Names were often redacted for national security reasons.
