They have only requested visitor logs for those who have appeared at Mar-a-Lago specifically to see Trump.

The March 3-5 trip was the fourth of seven visits to Mar-a-Lago by Trump during the early months of his presidency.

The Trump administration on Friday released the names of 22 people related to Abe's February visit, but refused to provide ethics watchdogs with the full visitor logs they'd requested via the Freedom of Information Act.

"The remaining records that the Secret Service has processed in response to the Mar-a-Lago contain, reflect, or otherwise relate to the President's schedules", wrote Chad Readler, the acting assistant attorney general, and Joon Kim, the acting USA attorney for the Southern District of NY, in a letter to CREW.

Another suspect arrested over London tube attack
Thirty people were injured during London's Friday morning rush hour when an improvised explosive device detonated on a Tube train. Detectives have so far spoken to 45 witnesses are receiving photos and videos from the public, while scouring CCTV footage.

A letter from U.S. Coast Guard Legal Services Office Chief Robert Teetsel, who responded to the Property of the People information request, says the Mar-a-Lago invoice was produced after "we queried the Government Travel Charge Card electronic data base for transactions involving Trump properties".

"The remaining records that the Secret Service has processed in response to the Mar-a-Lago request contain, reflect or otherwise relate to the president's schedules", the Department of Justice wrote to the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

"We are glad that as a result of this case, this information will become public for meetings at his personal residences - but it needs to be public for meetings at the White House as well", CREW executive director Noah Bookbinder said after the ruling, according to NBC News.

Judge Katherine Polk Failla, of Federal District Court in Manhattan, ordered the president's administration to hand over "records of presidential visitors at Mar-a-Lago" by September, the Times reported.

No. 12 LSU Is Getting Blown Out By Mississippi State
Mississippi State dominated LSU at the line of scrimmage on most plays and the Tigers looked undisciplined and overmatched. After running through Charleston Southern 49-0 in its first game, Mississippi State then crushed Louisiana Tech 57-21.

Echoing Bookbinder's charges, National Security Archive director Tom Blanton said: "The government misled the plaintiffs and the court", and "I can only conclude that the Trump White House intervened and overrode career lawyers". Since entering office in January, the Times reports that Trump has spent at least 25 days at his Winter White House.

Shapiro argues that a government payment to Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago violates the domestic emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which states that beyond his salary, the president "shall not receive...any other Emolument from the United States".

"The government seriously misrepresented their intentions to both us and the court", Bookbinder said. "This was spitting in the eye of transparency", he said. "We will be fighting this in court".

The lawsuit for the release of the White House visitor logs remains ongoing. On April 14, the Trump administration discontinued the policy, citing national security concerns. Trump bought Mar-a-Lago in 1985 and proceeded to fuck it up harder than Betsy DeVos's McMansion architect.

Liverpool fan tears into Jurgen Klopp
Jurgen Klopp says he's angry with aspects of Liverpool's performance and that their 1-1 draw with Burnley is hard to accept. Instead Liverpool were left to rue the absence of the suspended Sadio Mane and the eighth goal they conceded in eight days.

He has also golfed with undisclosed partners - an activity aides rarely confirm despite requests from White House reporters to know when he golfs and who joins him on the course.
