Key findings: White House visitor logs

  • Obama White House is the first to ever release visitor logs but the records are riddled with weaknesses.
  • Of 50,000 visitors logged in to see President Obama, most were attending 600-plus social events that drew hundreds or thousands of people.
  • Two-thirds of the visitors in the database were on White House group tours.
  • Junior aides often escorted VIP visitors, masking the real White House visitee.
