White House says no visitors logs for Biden's Delaware home

The White House and U.S. Secret Service said Monday they do not maintain visitor logs for President Joe Biden’s personal home in Wilmington, Del., a day after a top House

Republican called for their release. “Like every President across decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” White House counsel’s office spokesman Ian

Sams 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.” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., on Sunday sent a letter to White House chief of staff Ron Klain asking for

the visitor logs as the Justice Department and House Republicans investigate Biden’s handling of classified documents from his time in the Obama administration. The White House

acknowledged on Saturday that more pages with classified markings were discovered at Biden's Delaware home than had been previously disclosed. In his letter to Klain, Comer

said: “Given the serious national security implications, the White House must provide the Wilmington residence’s visitor log.” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi

echoed the White House: “We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence.” He added the Secret Service does perform background checks on

those who come in contact with the Bidens at their Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach homes, but that the U.S.S.S. only retains those documents for a limited time. But Guglielmi said

the agency would cooperate with any congressional request for information.
