Ethics watchdog to release Mar-a-Lago visitor logs

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.

A United States court has asked President Donald Trump's staff to turn over records of visitors to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, according to a ruling made public Monday.

According to CREW, the Secret Service, a branch of Homeland Security, keeps such logs but refused to turn them over.

"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", CREW executive director Noah Bookbinder said in a statement. CREW will then publicly release the logs once they're turned over.

The liberal-funded group sued DHS for information about visitors to Mar-a-Lago, Trump Tower in NY and the White House.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has agreed to release visitor logs for President Trump's "Winter White House", his family's private Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, and the information will be released to the public in early September. Crew also sued the Obama administration for access to those records.

Shortly after CREW filed its lawsuit, the Trump administration announced it would not be releasing the visitor logs specifically from the White House. A federal judge ruled the administration must release certain visitor logs on Friday.

The court has asked for "records of presidential visitors", but it is not yet clear how broadly that is defined.

Mr Trump has spent quite a bit of time at his Mar-a-Lago properties since his inauguration in January.
