Cheney Ordered Visitor Records Destroyed

HuffPo story:

A lawyer for Vice President Dick Cheney told the Secret Service in September to eliminate data on who visited Cheney at his official residence, a newly disclosed letter states. The Sept. 13, 2006, letter from Cheney's lawyer says logs for Cheney's residence on the grounds of the Naval Observatory are subject to the Presidential Records Act.

Such a designation prevents the public from learning who visited the vice president.

The Justice Department filed the letter Friday in a lawsuit by a private group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, seeking the identities of conservative religious leaders who visited Cheney at his official residence.

Hey, I came across your site as I was researching information about the Cheney record's situation. This is a great interactive opportunity and we hope you'll take a moment to send in a short 30-45 second video

Executive Privilege

Do you think it's fair for the White House to refuse to hand over Vice President Dick Cheney's records to Congress? Is the President over-extending the use of Executive Privilege? Tell us what you think!
