Watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) scored a major victory as Homeland Security agrees to turn over Mar-A-Lago visitor logs, which it will make public on September 8.
News release from CREW: “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.”
Donald Trump has fought transparency at every turn, but CREW’s victory, which is part of an ongoing litigation, will shed some light on his numerous conflicts of interest. The visitor logs will also show how Trump has been using the presidency for personal gain and financial profit. There is also the possibility that Russia may rear its ugly head too.
