Remember Major? The German Shepard dog Jill and Joe quickly adopted so they could look like “dog people.” Major was supposed to be a great PR stunt for the Bidens, but he didn’t want to cooperate with Jill and Joe and be a prop.
We heard stories about Major biting someone. Psaki told the story, claiming someone “surprised” Major, and he bit the person, but the injury was very mild.
Later, we heard of another incident, and then before you could say “Bob’s Your Uncle,” Major was gone.
Well, thanks to Judicial Watch, we now know the White House lied BIG time about Major and the dog bites, and the many agents in the Secret Service are pissed-off about it.
The entire thing turned into quite the scandal.
New York Post reports that Secret Service agents were outraged last year by the White House’s attempt to downplay bite injuries caused by then-first dog Major — even trying to get President Biden to personally pay for a damaged coat, newly released documents show.
Secret Service leaders also sought to keep attack details out of official paperwork — at one point rejecting an agent’s “excessively detailed” account to avoid upsetting the first family — after Major bit agents on eight consecutive days.
The records, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Judicial Watch, show that attacks occurred both earlier and later than previously known.
They also show internal discord at the Secret Service, which has been embroiled since last week in a bizarre infiltration scandal that involves at least four agents.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged just one biting incident at a briefing on March 9, 2021, saying that one day earlier “the first family’s younger dog, Major, was surprised by an unfamiliar person and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual.”
The March 8 bite actually was the final attack in an eight-day streak and the wounded agent — whose injuries were categorized as “severe” by a colleague — fumed about Psaki’s spin.
“NO I didn’t surprise the dog doing my job by being at [redacted] as the press secretary just said! Now I’m pissed,” the agent wrote to a coworker.
The colleague replied, “SMH. .. hope you didn’t get hurt to [sic] bad.”
Another message written by an unknown Secret Service employee refers to photos of the bite area and said the “injury cannot be described in any other term than ‘severe’.”
The incident occurred at about 7 a.m. on March 8 as the agent was in the second-floor White House residential area with first lady Jill Biden.
“Without warning or provocation, Major barked loudly at [the agent] … and charged,” is how a newly released, heavily redacted incident report describes what happened.
“Having no time to seek cover from the attack, [the agent] turned away from the dog as he bit into [redacted] right leg,” the account added.
About an hour later, President Biden’s then-chief protective agent David Cho wrote in an email: “Major bit one of the agents this morning. The agent is ok, but does have bruising and a puncture.”
The agent was bitten by Major a second time, but it is unclear when. They were “the only known PPD [Presidential Protective Division] agent to h[a]ve suffered two attacks from Major in less than 10 days,” according to a June email.
Photos of injuries were redacted in the records, but one photo that was released shows an agent’s wool overcoat that was ripped on March 6 as the president and first lady returned indoors from the White House Tennis Pavilion.
“As Major came around the corner, he attacked me unprovoked, tearing the wool overcoat I was wearing that evening,” the agent wrote in a first-hand account two months later as he sought reimbursement. “This attack occurred through no fault of my own and I could not avoid this unusual circumstance due to the nature and requirements of my position.”
An unidentified Secret Service employee reprimanded the agent, writing, “Please submit with the language that has been approved by [the legal office]. Unless you dispute anything in the verbiage that was presented to you, there shouldn’t be a need to embellish with additional details that aren’t required for approval.”
“These documents show Major was a dangerous dog and the Biden White House lied about it, placing Secret Service and other White House personnel at needless risk,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“And it seems the Secret Service management seemed more concerned about managing press relations than taking care of its agents. In fact, the agency is still withholding information about this mess!”
The full timeline of incidents revealed by the documents indicates that agents were bitten in separate incidents at around 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Feb. 28, 2022, at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware.
In the first attack of the day, the dog charged across a lawn and an agent “turned around to avoid a direct attack,” and got bitten in their right thigh. A photo taken a week later showed an “oval shape” bruise that “demonstrates the outline of the dog’s closed jaws.”
Later in the day, President Biden took his older dog Champ inside but left Major outdoors.
“Almost immediately after the door had shut, [the agent] observed Major running at [redacted] full stride from the main driveway” and the agent “quickly made an effort to seek shelter inside…[but] Major intercepted [the agent] and bit down on their] left forearm,” according to the documents.
The agent “quickly shook Major off,” but then “briefly turned [their] back on Major and the dog bit [redacted] a second time on the right buttock.”
“Approximately 15 minutes after this attack, POTUS Biden opened the front door to let Major into the residence,” according to the email.
This really makes you wonder about Joe Biden’s foot injury when we were told he was “playing” with Major.
Major doesn’t sound like a dog that a feeble old man should “play” with or tug at his tail.
This whole thing has been one big lie… Gee, I wonder what else they’ve lied about, right? 🙄
