Three public interest groups are seeking to force the Trump administration to account for its failure to turn over records of presidential visitors at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, one of the groups, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said in a statement Wednesday.

The groups said the government failed to obey a July 14 court order requiring it to make public all documents responsive to Freedom of Information Act requests for Mar-a-Lago records. Instead, the government turned over a single two-page document with the names of 22 members of a Japanese delegation that visited the resort.
