Press Release

WASHINGTON – On Friday the Trump Administration announced that it will not disclose White House visitor logs. Breaking with precedent, the Administration will not share with the public the names of the visitors who meet with President Trump, Vice President Pence and their senior staff.

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) is a cosponsor of legislation that would require the disclose of visitor logs at the White House, the Vice President’s residence and any place the President regularly conducts business, including the Mar-A-Lago resort.

Congressman Delaney releases the following statement:

“President Trump’s actions betray a fundamental contempt for democracy and a lack of respect for the American people. It is now clear that this country is being subjected to a deeply secretive presidency, one that believes the public is not worthy of knowing even a bare minimum about their activities and conflicts of interest. Long-standing norms that were respected and followed by leaders from both parties are being brazenly ignored by President Trump. The question remains: what is the President trying to hide?”
