According to a report from the Daily Caller, the Biden administration has leaked the personal details of those who visited the White House in the final weeks of President Donald Trump’s presidency. This news was supported by statements from the Government Publishing Office (GPO), which revealed that the government exposed over 1900 visitors’ Social Security Numbers.

I would like to know the political affiliations of those people whose numbers were leaked by the Trump white house?

Thanks to the Biden administration’s inefficiency, the affected persons who visited the White House in December 2020 now have their privacy up in the air. The Biden administration’s focus on former president Trump’s witch hunt has exposed Americans to unnecessary potential danger.
Americans are concerned with more misconduct by Biden’s administration and this time, the committee commissioned to examine January 6 Capitol activities is in the headlines for the wrong reasons.
Isn't the White House supposed to be super secure? https://t.co/2kGSqhb4bx

The Daily Caller reported that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was asked to provide the January 6 Committee with White House visitor logs in the final days of Trump’s administration. The period in question was from December 2020 to January 2021. NARA was supposedly expected to avail the committee with records that excluded birthdates and social security numbers removed.
The committee’s final report to Congress almost went unnoticed until January this year, when a media outlet reported the privacy breach. The GPO responded by retrieving the document and replacing it with a redacted version from NARA.
The GPO cited accelerated procedures, scarcity of resources and confusion, among others, as reasons for the error.
“Due to the involvement of multiple governmental agencies from different branches of government, it is not clear which body is responsible for the breach response. GPO has presented congressional oversight with a breach response plan and is waiting for their approval to act,” the report stated.
