Biden admin faces new scrutiny over unwillingness to release White House visitor logs

President Joe Biden came into office on a pledge of “transparency,” but just over a month later, he is facing increased scrutiny from both sides of the aisle as even some progressives are calling for his administration to be more open.

In the latest development, the president is facing bipartisan opprobrium for reportedly declining to release White House visitor logs.

“Regularly releasing the attendee lists”

The White House provided a statement to Politico regarding the decision, asserting: “Virtual meetings will not be subject to release — in the same way that previous administrations didn’t release phone logs — but we’re planning on regularly releasing the attendee lists for in-person meetings at the White House.”

For many critics, however, the excuses seem like little more than stonewalling that undermines Biden’s promise to be a trustworthy president “for all Americans.”

Since the early days of his presidential campaign, he faced pushback from those who felt he was suffering from cognitive troubles based on a series of gaffes and public missteps.

Those issues have continued in the weeks since his inauguration, including his recent struggle to read names from his prepared statement and his utterance of a telling question: “What am I doing here?”

Meanwhile, he has neglected to host a solo news conference as his schedule has not been shared online. Furthermore, the White House comment line has reportedly been shut down and questions from reporters are generally few and far between.

“An obligation across the government”

To critics, the Biden administration has all the hallmarks of a proverbial emperor with no clothes who is being protected from potentially embarrassing public appearances.

Progressives have seldom gone so far as to acknowledge the issues, but one left-leaning group is now calling on Biden to step it up a bit.

“They need to keep ‘showing their work’ by opening Cabinet meetings, disclosing information and using political capital to emphasize that being ‘open by default’ isn’t just an option but an obligation across the government,” asserted Digital Democracy Project advocate Alex Howard.

It seems that the Biden administration is rattled by the increasing scrutiny, as evidenced in White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s terse response to a reporter’s recent question.

During a press conference on Monday, she snapped: “He’s meeting with members of the Senate virtually today. There, I’ve released it for you. What else would you like to know?”

    1. or perhaps they are bowing up due to the lack of any weight to the administration. After all when you are a brain dead as the current administration is you have to have lost some tonnage somewhere. in either case something is going to snap. i suspect it is biden first followed by Psaki then closely followed by hunter then kerry, gore, pelosi, and schumer.

      Kamala will not snap because it will be the first times she has been off her knees in years. she will just be wondering why it is so bright.

  1. There is enough circumstantial evidence to call for an evaluation of his mental acuity which has to be released, or face Article 25 Removal!

        1. GRT him out he can’t handle the pressure like Trump did he has a illness be it dementia or something else he is weak can’t provide what America needs that’s what happens when you lie cheat and steal the election

        2. Agree…look who’s waiting in the wings …Kamala but even worse ..Pelosi … we’re doomed if something doesn’t help get them out of our government. I pray every day God intervenes somehow to help guide us to a better solution to get a better outcome for ALL people.

        3. agree, unfortunately he is the lesser of two evils…. but easier for his staff to walk all over and drive the agenda around him… like Cedric Richmond’s call for reparations. When will politicians realize money does not “grow on trees” it is “conscripted from We The People”??

          1. lesser of four evils! maybe five. its like evil heaven over in DC.

    1. Agree with you. Biden should be removed or the country is going to be in deep trouble. And not just the Swamp.

  3. Waiting for the now overdue State of the Union. Sadly, this reminiscent of the way Slip n’ Slide Hillary was locked down during the 2016 campaign. I think his handlers felt they could manage the situation for at least 24 months. That is starting to look overly optimistic. The appearance demands to confront several impending issue may be too much for him to handle, and they know it. Do not know how they survive with Harris taking over so soon. 22 mid terms could be total wipeout.

  4. Oh let’s again give thanks to the the SCOTUS, FBI and not to forget AG Barr.
    You dopes have really stuck it to us Americans while flushing the Constitution down the toilet.

  5. I believe this is exactly what the democrats expected! Hence, Joe’s on his last lap as president, and we have Harris up!!
    I think the amount of coverage was to be just enough for the American voters to see for themselves why the democrats HAD TO REPLACE HIM!! This is what was programmed all along!
    Much as I despise Harris, please God, maybe she has more intelligence than Joe, but unfortunately she is way too liberal and constantly looking for ways to give even more of the tax payers money to blacks!!

  6. The only good news here is that they are now fighting each other. Which actually shows just how bad things really are.

  7. How about a reporter calls this as s out and just says to her stop your b.s. and act like a real press secretary and stop the condescending behavior you display every time your asked a question ,that the American people deserve an answer and we will not ” circle back “. Stop being ignorant and start acting like a compentent press secretary “. Anyone got the guts to do this ????

  8. did joe Biden get elected or was it stolen i have a hard time to believe otherwise he stayed in his basement and i do not think he able to make any decisions for the country

    1. Just do what I do. Laugh at the goofy F***ers!! They’ll get theirs some day. Hopefully they won’t screw up the Country so bad it can’t be fixed before then.

  9. BIDEN IS MEETING VIRTUALLY WITH THE SENATE……HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GO TO THE CAPITAL??????? HE CAN’T GO OUT OF THE WH????????? OOPS!!!!! I FORGOT HE SECLUDED IN THE CELLAR??????? HE DOES NOT WANT TO RELEASE THE WH LOGS…….SOOO NO ONE CAN SEE THAT THERE WERE
    “NO VISITORS????????” NO PRESS CONFERENCES????? OOPS!!! HE PUT A LID ON IT?????? CAN’T TAKE QUESTIONS DIRECTLY???? OFF THE CUFF???? CAN’T READ FROM TELEPROMPTER????? WHEN HE WENT TO TX……NO SUPPORTERS SHOWED UP!!!!!…..JUST TRUMP SUPPORTERS!!!!!!! OOPS. !! I FORGOT 70M PEOPLE VOTED FOR HIM………BUT THEY WERE NOT AVAILABLE?????……….JILL WAVED TO A VACANT FOOD BANK (ABOUT 3-4 WORKERS!!). NO ONE ASKED ANY QUESTIONS!!!!!!!

  10. How is Biden allowed to issue executive orders when he has dementia? Who is REALLY running this country? Obama? Who is issuing these radical orders and putting Americans out of work, pushing the radical green new deal? Who are those trying to corrupt and destroy our election system and turn this into a one party communist system! Transparency now!

  11. Psaki can’t hold a candle to kaleigh! She and Sarah sanders were great! You want to know who is running this sh** show? OBAMA! This was the plan all along, get the stooges in, then remove them and he and Rice take over! Perfect coup!

  12. more lies, more deceit, more criminal actions being hidden from the public. Why are they afraid of disclosing the white house visitors? Did they let someone in that hates America and is trying to take over our government? Probably, else why would they not release the list of visitors.

  13. Complacency equals consent. Until the general population and those elected officials who have some backbone stand up, nothing will change the lunacy that has invaded our country.

  14. Circle back girl is the most moronic idiot! She doesn’t prepare herself and most likely isn’t included in the day to day goings on so she’s defensive and condescending when pushed for answers.🤮🤮🤮

  15. Everybody is basically saying the same thing, and that is that this administration is a sham and everyone involved is crooked as hell. We need to get rid of all of these people NOW. I keep thinking there has to be enough, at least semi-honest politicians, out there that could step up and put an end to this craziness. All this theatrics about this crumby little $1400 is nothing more then a smoke screen so people will be distracted from what’s really going on. BOTTOM LINE: DRAIN THAT FRICKEN SWAMP!
