House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) has vowed to keep the pressure on the White House for more information on Biden’s unsecured, classified documents after the admin announced no visitor logs were available for the Biden residence in Wilmington, Delaware.
Comer was hoping to get eyes on who went in and out of the home.
“President Biden promised to have the most transparent administration in history but he refuses to be transparent when it matters most,” Comer told Fox News Digital exclusively Monday.
“The White House, National Archives, and the Justice Department withheld information from Congress and the American people about classified records found in unsecured locations from Joe Biden’s time as vice president,” continued Comer. “The American people deserve transparency, not secrecy. We will continue to press the Biden Administration for answers about who had access to these classified documents and why Biden aides were permitted to rummage through the Wilmington residence after the appointment of a special counsel.”
Biden’s lawyers say it’s not unusual for the POTUS to not have visitor logs for his personal residences.
“Like every President in decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal,” the White House Counsel’s office told Fox News Monday.
“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 White House continued.
The Secret Service also confirmed it does not keep tabs on visitors.
“We don’t independently maintain our own visitor logs because it’s a private residence,” spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told reporters.
