No visitor logs exist for Biden's private home, White House says

After House Republicans demanded the White House turn over a log of visitors from President Joe Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware, where classified documents have been

discovered, the White House said Sunday that such a record does not exist. "Consistent with past precedent of every President across decades of modern history, his

personal residence is personal," a White House counsel's office spokesperson said in a statement. "But upon taking office, President Biden restored the norm and tradition of

keeping White House visitors logs, including publishing them regularly, after the previous administration ended them." U.S. Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi

told ABC News that they also do not maintain visitor logs of private residences, though the Secret Service does provide security screenings for visitors. The agency has

access to the visitor logs of official government buildings such as the White House and the vice president's residence, Guglielmi said. Those visitor logs are kept by the National

Archives. In a letter to White House chief of staff Ron Klain on Sunday, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the new House Oversight Committee chairman, requested visitors logs at

the Wilmington residence dating from Biden's inauguration to the present, with a deadline of Jan. 30. MORE: Oversight Committee seeks visitor logs from Biden's home after more
