"The Public Deserves To Know" - Ethics Watchdog To Release Mar-a-Lago Visitor Logs

Tyler Durden's picture

Following a lawsuit by government watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the Obama administration released their visitor logs (dating back to 2009), but the Trump White House announced in April that they would break with the practice.

However, as The Hill reports, CREW on Monday announced that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will turn over visitor logs to Trump’s property by Sept. 8 as part of ongoing litigation to the group, who in turn will make them public.

Official CREW Statement


As part of ongoing litigation brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the National Security Archive (NSA) and the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will turn over visitor logs for President Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence. CREW will publicly release the visitor logs upon receiving them by September 8th.


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


"We are glad that as a result of this case, this information will become public for meetings at his his personal residences—but it needs to be public for meetings at the White House as well."


CREW, NSA and Knight sued for the release of visitor logs from the White House, Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower. DHS claims to have no records of visitors at Trump Tower. The lawsuit is ongoing for the White House.


The Obama administration began releasing White House visitor logs in September 2009 to settle four lawsuits brought by CREW.

As The Hill notes, Senate Democrats earlier this year proposed the "Make Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act" or MAR-A-LAGO Act to force Trump to release visitor logs to the White House or other locations where he conducts official business. The Florida residence is a popular weekend destination for the president, with Trump even hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping there.

We can't wait for the media to scour this list for anyone with a Russian-sounding name!

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... www.jobproplan.com

You really want to unmask all the whistleblowers, witnesses, and investigators so the Clintons can have them killed?

it's fucking pathetic that nobody around here is saying every president should disclose this kind of shit

no wonder this ship is sinking.  

hold them all accountable for fucks sake.

Suspect those logs will be very boring but the Resistance is winning because look at all the time wasted here when we might be reading about the real news they are trying to keep from us.

Check out One America News and you will find that our health care (Obamacare) shows the US is ranked last among all developed nations in every category.   That's the stuff they just don't want you to hear about never mind think about.

"The Public Deserves To Know" - Ethics Watchdog To Release Mar-a-Lago Visitor Logs

My response: ETHICS???? Please SPARE ME!!! WHY? Because the CLINTON and OBAMA ethics are at the BOTTOM OF THE SWAMP!!!

Until you go after the SWAMP "CREATURE" ETHICS, don't waste my time. Please note I am not picking on any particular party, but ethics are lacking in the US government in general for the last 100 years to say the least.

Just watch the movie: "3 Days of the Condor" or any government-based movie thriller made in the last 30 years.

I'll believe that when I see indictments handed down. I've seen the same underhanded BS (a different flavor, mind you) coming from this Admin that I've seen from the last 5. So far the performance has been lackluster on the best days.

 Where was this watchdog group for the last 8 years? Id love to see all the people Obomba met with.

 Double standards are easy to spot if you are looking for them. I started noticing the use of them when I was just a lad in grade school.

Not a Peep there right?

Plays at his own course on weekends (unlike Obama)...

Perhaps you could look up the cost of Barrie's trips around the country to Campaign of The Crook on the taxpayer dime?

Oh, and did I mention Trump donates his salary to charity, while Obama chews up $millions in payoffs to vacation around the world in lavish Billionaire retreats!

Citrus Flip already outted himself that hes not actually donating his salary. Different face, same BS

 Im also still waiting for transcripts of Obombas meatings with Lois Lerner.

CheapBastard's picture

I guess Soweeto bin Banana will still be "the most transparent administration ever."


.... despite both Holder and Lowrenta and lerner taking the Fifth and Obama blocking just about every Freedom of Information Act request during his 8 years, and Susan Rice and Obama sneaking around unmasking people and wire tapping Congressmen and the candidates.

I would tell this "ethics" pimp to take his request and shove it where the light don't shine.

Nice to see the mongoloid democrats have nothing better to do than make cleverly named useless legislation. I wonder if trump has convicted felons visiting him on multiple occasions like Berri the bumhacker did ( robert creamer ).

I'd bet Maxine Waters' favorite mink cape that he in fact does not.

Will be interesting data to D/L and tie to industrial info (sector, size, party donations, funding sources, etc)

Yet O-dumb-ass can travel to a Known Pedophiles Island and no one says a word...Interesting.

And a bunch of some of the worst characters around in and out of O-dumb-ass White House. Nothing. So what's the purpose of all this? Ego satisfaction? Why doesn't this lawsuit happy guy spend his time on something really worthwhile and get the Fed audited?

Jeffrey Epstein was/is a member at Mar-A-Lago.


"I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,'' Trump told New York magazine in a 2002 profile of Epstein written three years before Epstein began to be investigated. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

If you dig enough lord drumph was named on some of epsteins court documents when he was up on pedo charges for lolita island and drumph was there several times corn holing 12 13 14 15 yr old girls why the fuk you think bill and hairy cankles are free lol epstein the jew kept dossiers on every one that was on that island so now you know why dirt on every one lol 

FoggyWorld's picture

I think I have read almost all of the documents that are out there and Trump's name showed up and the Jane Doe involved in that last lawsuit's attorney phoned Trump to say he was going to subpoena him.  Trump asked him what he wanted to know and he gave out all of the information - so much so that the attorney - Edwards - decided that Trump had been so honest that he didn't need him.

Mar-a-Lago employed Jane Doe's father as one of its groundskeepers and Jane herself spent one summer break working at folding towels for the swimming pool area.   Jane Doe never met Trump though his name shows up in those documents as being the owner of Mar-a-Lago.

Only time Trump shows up on a flight log which appears in those court documents is when he in effect hitched a ride on Eptstein's smaller plane, a Cessna, to take them both from Palm Beach back to NYC via Teterboro and that, too, happened before the indictment and no women were on that flight.

Use common sense instead of lying.   If Epstein had the goods on Trump, Epstein super Democrat and F.O.B, would have provided HRC's campaign with all of that dirt you imply is there but just isn't.






FoggyWorld's picture

But later when Epstein was indicted Trump tossed Epstein out of Mar-a-Lago permanently.
