LEGAL/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Democratic U.S. lawmakers on Monday urged President Donald Trump to release logs of visitors to the White House and Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida under a policy that made public the names of nearly six million visitors to the White House during the administration of Barack Obama.
If Trump continues the policy, under which visitor logs were released 90 to 120 days after they were created, the public could learn who has been visiting the Trump White House as soon as April 20, according to the lawmakers’ letter.
Two of its eight signatories, Senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Tom Udall, received no reply to a Feb. 3 request that Trump publicize visitor lists from Mar-a-Lago, which Trump has described as the ‘Winter White House’ and visited four times since becoming president, according to Monday’s letter.
The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment. A page on the White House website’s ‘Disclosures’ section entitled ‘Visitor Access Records’ says the page will post records of White House visitors on an ongoing basis, once they become available. It does not mention Mar-a-Lago.”
