The Biden Administration seems to be setting a new standard for blatant lies.
We saw how White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lied about Kamala Harris wearing a mask inside and socially distancing from Joe Biden, despite video showing that wasn’t the case.
When they make such easily debunked lies, how much more are they lying about the things that are important and that are not as easy to see?
They are even lying about dog bites. Imagine when they go to that level to even cover that up.
You may recall the stories in March of 2021 of Major Biden, the Biden’s dog, supposedly nipping someone. Now, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch, we find out there was a lot more to the story.
Here was Psaki downplaying it then, noting just one incident where someone “surprised” the dog (translate: even for the dog, in the Biden family it’s never their fault).
White House @PressSec Psaki says that the Bidens’ dog Major was involved in “a minor injury” to a person on Monday.

But it turns out, the White House wasn’t being transparent. As we reported in August of last year, it wasn’t just one nip, Major bit members of the Secret Service eight days in a row in early March — though only the one incident was publicly acknowledged. The agent who was bit in the incident that Psaki referred to was furious about how she downplayed the problem.
The March 8 bite actually was the final attack in an eight-day streak and the injured 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 co-worker.
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. 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.
The agent was also bitten a second time by Major, according to the records.
The records also show another incident in May, when the dog charged another agent.
A Secret Service agent wrote in an email that on May 12, “Out of nowhere the dog jumps and bites the sleeve of my suit jacket missing my arm (front teeth just scratching the top of the skin). As I lift my arm up the dog was still attached to my suit jacket and the First Lady was attempting to pull the dog off of me via the leash.”
There were also two biting incidents in February as well.
The records show that when the agent in the incident Psaki referenced put in for reimbursement for his coat that was ripped by the dog, he was chastised for putting in too much detail about the attack and told to cut out the details if he wanted to have his request processed.
“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.”
“If you would like to submit a separate memo to- memorializing the events of 3/6 in great
detail, you certainly may. But your added language on the [form] provides more specificity that what [the legal office] requested. I have been told that if you update the [request] with the approved verbiage, your request will be processed.”
Ultimately, the agent took back the request for reimbursement, saying he didn’t want the government to reimburse him since that would come out of the pocket of the taxpayers — that he wanted the owners of the dogs [the Biden family] to be responsible for it.
“After some deep thought and reflection, I don’t believe the USSS should be responsible for the damage to my coat as the cause was not under their control. To be compensated in this manner would essentially have the cost borne by the tax payer and this would be unjust,” the agent wrote, adding: “the responsibility should lie with the party responsible for the wrong doing (i.e. tort), and that of course would be the dog owner/s.”
It’s not clear what happened after that.
But the incident shows that the Biden team was far more concerned with downplaying the incident than they were about the safety of the agents who were being put at risk by the dog — that they didn’t want the details to get out and blow up the problem even more. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said the White House was still holding back information, and they haven’t responded yet to these new revelations.
This is the way they treat the people to whom they owe so much for providing them protection? That says so much about Joe Biden.
