According to White House visitor logs, President Barack Obama hosted a “DNC event” in the White House on Feb. 25, a Democratic National Committee event that was not on the schedule for that day.

The logs list 16 people, all of whom arrived between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on the afternoon of Feb. 25 for a “DNC Event” held on the State Floor of the White House, a room where foreign dignitaries are entertained.

The logs did not list in which room on that floor the event was held. However, the State Floor includes the East Room, State Dining Room, and the Blue Room, site of another DNC event.

The logs also confirm that each of the 16 guests were to meet with President Obama, using the acronym “POTUS,” or President of the United States.
