    Judge to Secret Service: Turn Over Abramoff Logs

    A U.S. District Court judge has ordered the Secret Service to turn over White House visitor logs after Judicial Watch sued to obtain information on Jack Abramoff's comings and goings at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled against the Secret Service on Tuesday, and told it to provide all non-exempt records within 20 days of the court order, according to Judicial Watch.

    ...

    Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request on Jan. 20, 2006, with the Secret Service to obtain all White House visitor logs from Jan. 1, 2001, to track when Abramoff entered and exited the White House. The watchdog group said the public deserved to know about Abramoff's activities.

    After the Secret Service failed to respond completely, Judicial Watch filed lawsuits on Feb. 22, 2006, and April 25, 2006. The Secret Service provided incomplete non-official records, but not everything Judicial Watch was looking for.

    "The court has obviously had enough of the gamesmanship by the Secret Service," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. "We're very pleased with the court's ruling. This is a tremendous victory for transparency in government. In this case we hope the Bush administration stops trying to evade FOIA law."​

    "nothing to see here!!! please stand back!!"

    Its to bad these things don't happen in real time like they use to. (Wasn't it just two days ago a judge ordered the Gonzo investigation to go foward. ) Because the majority will look at it as water over the dam and justice (Bush impeached or worse) won't happen.

    Well, of course... We can expect no real accountability for the teflon administration... They've put their own vast array of protections in place...

    But at least the "You just hate Bush" squawkers are being more and more revealed for what they are and always were: In complete pathological denial that their hero is office is a lying fraud.

    George Bush will delay things as long as he can and then he will pull the move made famous in mafia movies where the person on trial shows up in court on a hospital bed with an IV in his arm. Bush will claim mental distress and be declared incompetant ... game over.
