Secret Service Reveals Mar-A-Lago Visitor Logs Don’t Exist

For months, government watchdogs have filed lawsuits and urged to see the visitor logs from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort while the president is there. But now the Secret Service has announced that no such visitor logs exist.

According to Politico, Secret Service Special Agent Kim Campbell said that the service’s “protective efforts” at Mar-a-Lago were “newly developed” and so they did not set up a recording system like the one at the White House.

Back in April, three transparency groups filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security, who is in charge of the Secret Service.

DHS only revealed 22 people who visited Mar-a-Lago in February, who were all part of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s contingency.

Those have been the only names that have been released.

“The American people have a right to know who’s visiting the President, and an integral part of the Secret Service’s mission is to screen those people,” National Security Archive spokeswoman Lauren Harper said in a statement.

“If true, this is an extraordinary accountability oversight by the Secret Service, especially considering President Trump has already spent several months of his presidency at his own properties, far from the White House, with no indication he will soon be spending less time on the greens and more time at the Rose Garden,” she added.
