Washington, D.C., September 8, 2017The widely anticipated release of Mar-a-Lago visitor records during President Trump’s first six weeks in office has been delayed until noon on Friday, September 15, at the request of the government.

Previously, federal district judge Katherine Polk Failla had ordered release of this first tranche of visitor logs for today, as a result of the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by the National Security Archive, the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (Doyle et. al. v. DHS). But government lawyers told the plaintiffs yesterday that another week was needed for final review of the records.

The National Security Archive will post the Mar-a-Lago records online as soon as they are received from the government on September 15.
