Paul S. Ryan, president of Common Cause, added, "Donald Trump is charged with doing the people's business, but by keeping his visitors logs a secret, the people will have no idea who he is doing business with at the White House".
This is in contrast to the Obama administration's policy of releasing the White House visitor's log, a practice that they began in 2009 after facing a number of complaints.
India, Australia to boost collaboration in skill development
After the talks, PM Modi said, "Our bilateral mechanisms on counter-terrorism and transnational crimes are functioning well". Mr Turnbull has also invited India's team to train in Australia before the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
The names and personal information of visitors to the 18-acre White House complex are logged by the Workers and Visitor Entry System, known as WAVES, which is operated by the US Secret Service and determines who can gain access to the complex.
"The only reasonable conclusion is to believe the Trump administration has many things it is trying to hide", the American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement, also referencing the administration's relationship with the media. "The president brings unprecedented conflicts of interest to the White House, and he already has taken actions in office that suggest he is more concerned with helping people like him - the wealthy and well-connected - than he is with empowering ordinary Americans".
The Trump administration was sued in federal court earlier this week by a coalition of watchdog groups to compel the release of the White House visitor logs.
Stockholm truck attack suspect was facing deportation
Four people died and dozens were injured when a lorry mowed down pedestrians in the heart of the Swedish capital on Friday. Soderberg said it was important that caregivers continue to give "long-term psychological support to those who need it".
The Trump administration announced Friday that it would not disclose the logs, citing "grave national security risks and privacy concerns", according to The Washington Post. If the public does not know who is visiting the White House, they can not know who has the ear of Trump and his team, potentially influencing policy and other major decisions. The most obvious is Trump's brazen hypocrisy, for which there is no credible excuse.
Officials said that sensitive meetings - including interviews of potential Supreme Court justices and huddles with top national security officials - were scrubbed from the official records. By closing the site, the White House estimates it will save over $70,000 in taxpayer dollars by 2020. Under the new policy, records will be kept private for at least five years after Trump leaves the White House.
Those exemptions, said Blanton, demonstrate that the previous system allowed for transparency without compromising national security or privacy concerns.
Researchers name loud shrimp after Pink Floyd
It's also part of a pattern for De Grave, who once named a shrimp after Mick Jagger-Elephantis jaggerai. I've seen them play live several times since, including the Hyde Park reunion gig for Live8 in 2005.
"Congress made clear that it did not want documents like the appointment calendars of the President and his close advisers to be subject to disclosure", Merrick Garland, chief judge of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, wrote at the time.
