The Secret Service Furious With Psaki for Downplaying Severity of Dog Bites
The Secret Service is allegedly unhappy with White House officials – particularly Press Secretary Jen Psaki – for significantly downplaying the frequency with which Major, Joe Biden’s dog, bit officers.
According to 36 pages of Secret Service correspondence obtained by government Judicial Watch, Major, a German Shepard, bit or snapped at agents many times last year, leaving puncture wounds, ripped clothes, and bruises in some cases.
According to the New York Post, Secret Service personnel were enraged with the White House for ignoring their attacks. Major allegedly tore a suitcoat worth roughly $2,000 on one occasion. The agent who owned the coat asked Biden to pay for it.
The attacks were downplayed to avoid upsetting the Biden family, according to reports.
“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,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
When questioned about the various attacks, Psaki has repeatedly downplayed them.
