Democratic senators have demanded them. Lawsuits have been filed. Now visitor logs for President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach will be released. Nonprofit government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, announced Monday morning that as part of an ongoing lawsuit, the Department of Homeland Security will release the logs to the organization by Sept. 8. CREW said it then plans to make public the lists of who has visited Trump’s exclusive social club.
“The public deserves to know who is coming to meet with the president and his staff,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a news release. “We are glad that as a result of this case, this information will become public for meetings at his his personal residences—but it needs to be public for meetings at the White House as well.” Since taking office in January, Trump has visited Mar-a-Lago seven times.
Elon Musk Warns: Regulate AI Before It’s Too Late
The Guardian reports:
Tesla and Space X chief executive Elon Musk has pushed again for the proactive regulation of artificial intelligence because “by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it’s too late”.
Speaking at the US National Governors Association summer meeting in Providence Rhode Island, Musk said: “Normally the way regulations are set up is when a bunch of bad things happen, there’s a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry.”
“It takes forever. That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilization.”
