White House doesn't keep visitor logs of Biden, Trump personal homes

The White House doesn't keep visitor logs for President Biden's personal residences, the White House counsel's office confirmed Monday.  That clarification came as some

House Republicans have begun calling for visitor logs of Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Del., home after multiple documents marked classified were discovered at the his Wilmington

residence. The White House counsel's office noted it isn't standard practice for the White House to keep visitor logs of presidents' personal homes. "Like every president

across decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal," said Ian Sams, spokesperson for the White House counsel. "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." The Obama administration was

the first to release White House visitor logs, although it did not do so until Barack Obama had been president for nine months, and there were several exceptions. The Trump

administration then discontinued the practice before Mr. Biden reinstated it. House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, Republican of Kentucky,

has requested that the White House provide a log of all visitors to Mr. Biden's Wilmington home since the beginning of his presidency. GOP Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado has also

requested visitor logs of the Wilmington residence.
