Documents obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch reveal Secret Service agents are furious over the Brandon White House’s lies related to dog biting incidents.
As previously reported, Judicial Watch last August obtained 36 pages of Secret Service records and communications that show Brandon’s German Shepherd Major repeatedly bit Secret Service agents.
Judicial Watch blasted the Brandon White house for covering up and downplaying the biting incidents.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed just one biting incident last March claiming the dog was “surprised by an unfamiliar person and reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury to the individual.”
The previously released emails show that Major bit Secret Service agents on 8 different days last March before he was sent back to Brandon’s Delaware compound.
Brandon’s other dog Champ died in June 2021.
Some bites were so severe that the agents needed medical attention.
Emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal Secret Service Agents were furious over Jen Psaki’s lies about what really happened related to the dog biting incidents.
Judicial Watch reported:
In an email chain dated March 9, 2021, a member of the Presidential Protective Division (PPD) expresses their anger that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lacked candor about the dog bite incident during a press briefing. The chain begins when a fellow agent checks on the welfare of a colleague asking, “You ok? Someone told me you got bit.”
The USSS PPD agent replies, “Yes I got bit by Major on [redacted] and NO I didn’t surprise the dog doing my job by being at [redacted] as the press secretary just said! Now I’m pissed. Thanks for checking in.”
The initial agent replies, “SMH [shaking my head]… hope you didn’t get hurt to bad. Take care.”
A Secret Service incident report concerning a dog attack on the morning of February 28, 2021, at the Brandon’s Wilmington, Delaware, lake home discloses the following:
At approximately 0900hrs, while working the AM shift for POTUS at the Wilmington, DE Lake house, SA [redacted] was walking to relieve SA [redacted] from the [redacted] location. SA [redacted] stated that [redacted] observed Major running at SA [redacted] and heard him yelling at the dog. At this point, SA [redacted] continued to walk toward SA [redacted] location and saw Major had turned in [redacted] direction running at high speed. SA [redacted] once more heard SA [redacted] yell, “Major stop!” before [redacted] turned around to avoid a direct attack. Upon turning [redacted] was struck on [redacted] right thigh by the dog’s mouth. Major then ran across the yard towards the opposite end of the house. SA [redacted] was shaken from this encounter, having almost been bitten, therefore SA [redacted] held the [redacted] with [redacted] until Major had been brought back into the residence. SA [redacted] did not seek medical attention for this incident.
The report has a footnote regarding a photo taken a week after the attack, showing “a bruise where Major’s mouth impacted [redacted] leg. The oval shape of injury demonstrates the outline of the dog’s closed jaws.”
In an email dated June 24, 2021, regarding the February 28 incident, a Secret Service official writes: “I have taken the liberty of adding the Uniformed Division to this email chain as I understand there have been multiple bite/attack incidents involving Major and their officers.”
