Fast and Furious Killings, Lies and Obama White House Visitor Logs
JW Makes Case in Key Court in High Stakes Battle over Obama White House Visitor Logs
Nearly three years after Judicial Watch first filed a lawsuit trying to get hold of Obama White House visitor logs, we are still in court battling for their release.
This week, our attorney Jim Peterson went before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to make our case. As summarized by Bloomberg:
The names of people vetted by the U.S. Secret Service for White House visits are agency records that must be made public, a lawyer for Judicial Watch Inc. told a federal appeals court in Washington.
Judicial Watch, a Washington-based legal activist organization, asked a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals today to uphold a district judge’s order requiring the Secret Service to process its request for the names of people who visited the White House during the first nine months of President Barack Obama’s term under the Freedom of Information Act.
