(FreedomBeacon.com)- Since becoming President of the United States, Joe Biden has made 18 trips home to Delaware – including two trips just last week. And despite the frequency of his trips home, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last Wednesday that President Biden will not be releasing the visitor logs from his Delaware residences.
Ironic for an administration that vowed that it would “restore transparency and trust in government.” Then again, this administration vowed to do a lot of this it has failed to do – like getting 70 percent of the country vaccinated by July 4.
In response to a question about these Delaware trips, Psaki said that the White House refuses to provide information “about the comings and goings of the president’s grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware.”
Not everybody is especially pleased with the news. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton that this policy “makes a mockery” of White House claims of transparency regarding the visitor log. The same transparency at the White House should apply to Biden’s frequent visits home. Fitton believes the White House is using Biden’s trips to Delaware to bypass the transparency they promised.
For Fitton, the larger concern about hiding Biden’s Delaware visitors stems from the past business ventures between Joe and his brother and his son. Dismissing demands for logs because it’s family isn’t exactly comforting given the family in question.
Biden has spent fifty days in Delaware since he was sworn into office. The day after Psaki confirmed no visitor logs would be provided, Joe left the White House for Delaware once again. This, despite the fact that he just returned to the White House from Delaware two days earlier.
His time in his home state is divided between his house in Wilmington and his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach.
By law, presidents can pick and choose whether or not to release visitor logs. This became the case in 2013 after then-Appeals Court judge Merrick Garland ruled that releasing visitor logs was up to the president.
On Friday, Biden flew from Wilmington to Camp David where he is currently hiding while the Taliban takes over Afghanistan.
