Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., has requested that Trump Organization golf clubs hand over their visitor records over concerns that certain people may have obtained unfair access to the president.

"As a ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, I believe transparency about the president's ties to business leaders, trade groups and foreign officials are critical to successful trade policy," Wyden wrote in a letter to the Department of Homeland Security, according to The Hill.

A USA Today investigation found that "dozens of lobbyists, contractors and others who make their living influencing the government pay President Trump's companies for membership in his private golf clubs, a status that can put them in close contact with the president."

Though membership lists and visitor logs are kept secret, the paper used social media and an unnamed golfing website to identify golfers who frequent Trump clubs and do business with the government.

"These unprecedented levels of paid access to the president merit immediate scrutiny," Wyden wrote.

The senator requests records of all visitors and guests to the president's golf clubs and resorts during his stays there as president, the names of all the people he golfs with while in office, the names of club visitors and members with ties to foreign governments, and the names of anyone who required screening by the Secret Service before being allowed on Trump property.
