Court Orders Release of Trump's 'Winter White House' Visitor Logs

Court Orders Release of Trump's 'Winter White House' Visitor Logs

The Department of Homeland Security will release Mar-a-Lago visitor records as part of an ongoing lawsuit from three watchdog groups.

CREW, NSA and Knight sued for the release of visitor logs from the White House, Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower.

As it stands now, nobody outside the administration knows who is visiting the president at the White House, Trump Tower, or the "Southern White House", the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.

As president, Trump has visited his southern bolthole - which he calls the "Winter White House" - seven times between February and May when it closed for the season, according to an AFP tally.

In 2013, a federal appeals court ruled White House visitor logs could be kept secret, but the Obama administration continued to provide them with some names omitted.

"The public deserves to know who is coming to meet with the president and his staff", CREW executive director Noah Bookbinder said.

Even with the Mar-a-Lago records obtained, it may not be clear who's using the resort to potentially wield influence on the White House.

Walter Shaub told the New York Times that the Trump administration has ignored long-established guidelines, and that the flouting of ethics rules at home makes it hard for the United States to tackle corruption overseas.

CREW told AFP they would be looking closely to see the scope of what is turned over. Trump earned $37.2 million from Mar-a-Lago last year, according to his most recent financial disclosure form - a almost 25 percent increase from the previous year.

The federal judge overseeing the case ordered late last week that the administration "complete its search for and processing of responsive 'records of presidential visitors at Mar-a-Lago, ' and produce any non-exempt responsive records" by September 8, according to court documents. Obama's White House, however, reserved the right to redactrecords of visitors that were personal guests not involved in official or political business, as well as records related to "particularly sensitive meetings". The pictures, which were posted on social media, sparked concerns that the Trump team handled a sensitive national security issue in public.
