Can we see White House visitor logs? Who is asking?

Judicial Watch's request for copies of White House visitor logs has been denied by the U.S. Secret Service, which claimed the documents are covered by the Presidential Records Act and thus are subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). 

Craig Ulmer, the Secret Service's FOIA officer, helpfully pointed out to Judicial Watch, however, that the Presidential Records Act gives the White House discretion to release such documents as it thinks proper. In other words, whether we get to know who is meeting with the President and Vice-President during the Obama administration is strictly up to them.

Stay tuned. Judicial Watch rarely gives up without a fight.
