Trump Orders White House visitor logs to be kept Secret

Apr 17, 2017

Normally, White House logs revealing who visits the White House are public records. In a move that brought criticism from both Left and Right, the Trump administration has decided keep the knowledge of who visits the White House a secret. This moves keeps the public from knowing if lobbyists, corporate leaders, or politically controversial people are meeting with the president or his key aids.

Sadly, the Trump administration is using the false excuse that this is a matter of national security---the traditional excuse used to cover the secret and sometimes illegal acts of government. Trump supporters and conservatives are very much worried because they suspect Trump is meeting with establishment insiders he said he opposed during his campaign. --So much for Donald's promise to “drain the swamp”.
