The watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW) in Washington announced a “major victory” Monday on Twitter — its lawsuit has prevailed in obtaining the visitor logs from President Donald Trump’s Florida getaway.
MAJOR CREW VICTORY: as part of our lawsuit, the gov’t has to turn over Mar-a-Lago visitor records by Sept. 8th. We’ll be making them public.

“The public deserves to know how is coming to meet with the president and his staff,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder told the Washington Examiner.
CREW’s lawsuit to obtain visitor logs from the White House is ongoing, the Examiner reported.
That practice, started by former President Barack Obama in 2009, has not been carried on by the Trump administration thus far.
