Secret Service must hand over Abramoff logs

E-mail Print PDF

The Secret Service has 18 days to hand over White House visitor logs detailing disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s visits, according to Judicial Watch, a public interest legal group.

The court ruled that the Secret Service violated the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by not thoroughly searching White House visitor records that could contain information about Abramoff’s visits. The Secret Service had argued that these additional visitor records, called “Sensitive Security Records,” were so secret that the agency could neither confirm nor deny their existence.

It has been three years since Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request with the Secret Service seeking all White House visitor logs from Jan. 1, 2001, to the present time. After the Secret Service failed to respond, Judicial Watch filed lawsuits on Feb. 22, 2006, and April 25, 2006. The Secret Service’s response to a previous court order was incomplete, so Judicial Watch continued to press its legal case.

TVNL Comment: We live in a country that operates like a Mafia now. The entier system is currupt including the judicial and law enforcement systems. There is no legal recource to hold the biggest criminals in government accountable.
