Judicial Watch Statement on Trump White House Decision to Keep Secret the Names of White House Visitors

APRIL 14, 2017

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement by the Trump White House about its decision to keep secret the names of White House visitors:

“Judicial Watch is disappointed with the Trump White House decision to keep secret the names of White House visitors.  Unfortunately, this move is perfectly in line with the policy of the Obama White House to prevent these visitors logs from being processed and released under the Freedom of Information Act.  President Trump should simply allow the Secret Service to apply FOIA to its White House visitor logs. The Secret Service can protect the personal privacy of some visitors while upholding the rule of law.   This new secrecy policy undermines the rule of law and suggests this White House doesn’t want to be accountable to the American people.”
