White House visitor records closed

White House visitor records closed

The White House and the Secret Service quietly signed an agreement last spring in the midst of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal declaring that records identifying visitors to the White House are not open to the public.

The Bush administration didn’t reveal the existence of the memorandum of understanding until last fall. The White House is using it to deal with a legal problem on a separate front, a ruling by a federal judge ordering the production of Secret Service logs identifying visitors to the office of Vice President
Dick Cheney

This must be challenged by Congress.

yeah I read this a few days ago. It has to do with the Abrahmoff scandal…

It does have traction though…have a feeling it will be a problem eventually
