Mar-a-Lago visitor logs expected to be released
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Democratic senators have demanded them. Lawsuits have been filed. Now, visitor logs for President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach will be released.
Nonprofit government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, announced Monday that as part of an ongoing lawsuit, the Department of Homeland Security will release the logs to the organization by Sept. 8.
CREW said that it then plans to make public the lists of who has visited Trump’s exclusive social club.
“The public deserves to know who is coming to meet with the president and his staff,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a news release. “We are glad that as a result of this case, this information will become public for meetings at his personal residences – but it needs to be public for meetings at the White House, as well.”
Since taking office in January, Trump has visited Mar-a-Lago seven times. In March, eight Democratic senators called for the release of the logs.
