The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington believe Alfred M Rankin Jr. President of North American Coal had secret communications at the White House with President Obama. HERE
This led to a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to the Secret Service HERE
Of course they refused to surrender guest list so a litigation is commencing. HERE
Washington, D.C. – Today, (CREW) is filing a complaint against the Department of Homeland Security based on the refusal of the Secret Service to provide CREW with White House visitor records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). CREW sought records of visits by top coal executives in an effort to learn the extent to which these individuals may have influenced the administration’s energy policy. Taking the exact same position as the Bush administration, the Obama administration claimed the records are presidential, not agency records, and otherwise exempt in their entirety because of the possibility in some instances they could reveal information protected by the presidential communications privilege. In prior litigation U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth agreed with CREW that the records are agency records that must be disclosed under the FOIA.
“We are pleased and excited about expanding our operations in Mississippi, as it is a great state to do business,” said Tres Tipton, vice president of operations for North American Coal in Mississippi and Louisiana. HERE
