Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will turn over the identities of visitors to Mar-a-Lago, Trump's home in Palm Beach, Fla., and that CREW will make the records public.

The decision comes after litigation by the watchdog group in conjunction with the non-government organizations National Security Archive at George Washington University and Columbia University's Knight First Amendment Institute.

The three NGOs sued for release of visitor's logs from the White House, Mar-a-Lago and Trump Tower in Manhattan. The lawsuit regarding the White House is still pending. DHS has said it has no records of visitors to Trump Tower.
