Newly released documents have revealed that Secret Service agents were upset over the White House’s version of the accounts about dog attacks by President Joe Biden’s dog Major.
The new details were shared from information obtained by Judicial Watch in a Freedom of Information Act request.

The “official” story
In March 2021, the White House said Major bit someone after being surprised by an unfamiliar person.
The White House reported Major as being “startled” and responding rather than attacking an agent. The media version also did not mention the multiple other biting incidents, though a second bite was later mentioned.

The real story
“According to the unsealed documents, the bite occurred after the dog bit agents over eight consecutive days and the injuries were ‘severe’ rather than minor,” the Daily Caller reported.
“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 reportedly wrote to a co-worker. The co-worker replied, “SMH. .. hope you didn’t get hurt to [sic] bad,” according to the report.
“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 strange account of the fuller information about the president’s dog shows the great lengths that may be taken to change details about events in the Biden administration.
