Washington, D.C., September 15, 2017 The Department of Homeland Security today released exactly two pages of Mar-a-Lago presidential visitor records in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by the National Security Archive, together with the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University and the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

The only document the government released concerns the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe – this after telling Judge Failla and the plaintiffs that DHS would produce all the visitor logs.

“The government misled the plaintiffs and the court,” commented  the National Security Archive’s Director Tom Blanton. “I can only conclude that the Trump White House intervened and overrode career lawyers.”
