Secret Service Will Turn Over Abramoff Visit Logs
Posted on May 1, 2006
The logs will show how often the convicted lobbyist met with Bush administration officials—and with whom he met.
The Secret Service has agreed to turn over White House visitor logs that will show how often convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff met with Bush administration officials ? and with whom he met.
U.S. District Judge John Garrett Penn last Tuesday approved an agreement between the Secret Service and Judicial Watch, a public interest group, that requires the agency to produce records of Abramoff’s visits from Jan. 1, 2001, to the present.
Judicial Watch filed suit in February after the Secret Service failed to respond to its request under the federal Freedom of Information Act.
Abramoff, who represented Indian tribes in their dealings with Washington politicians, once was one of the city’s most successful lobbyists.
