“Now I’m pissed.”
That was the response to the Biden administration’s spin by a Secret Service agent, according to recently uncovered documents.

Conservative legal group Judicial Watch sued the White House over reports that President Joe Biden’s dog, Major, had “reacted in a way that resulted in a minor injury.”
Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request in May 2021 to get the story behind the “minor injury” — and they found a cover-up.
According to The New York Post, the Secret Service agents involved in the dog attacks were outraged that the White House downplayed the incidents — including an offer from Biden to pay for the damaged clothing of one of the agents his dog attacked.
“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 NY Post reported.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said “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” after the initial incident in Mar. 2021.
Secret Service agents were reportedly shocked and complained that the attack was far more “severe” than Psaki said.
“NO I didn’t surprise the dog doing my job by being at [redacted] as the press secretary just said! Now I’m pissed,” one agent said in an email.

The emails between Secret Service agents include a host of complaints and warnings that the dog was dangerous and continued to attack White House staff.
Attached are a couple of photos from the dog bites SA [redacted] has received the [sic] in the last week from the First Family’s pet (Major).
On 3.1.21, SA [redacted] was bit by Major on [redacted] at the Lake House in Wilmington, DE. That bite caused some bruising as seen in the picture dated 3.1.21.
On 3.8.21, SA [redacted] was bit by Major on [redacted] at the White House. That bite caused bruising and puncture to the skin as seen in the picture dated 3.8.21.
At the current rate an Agent or Officer has been bitten every day this week (3/1-3/8) causing damage to attire or bruising/punctures to the skin.
“We’re sure Major is a good dog but these records show he was involved in many more biting incidents than the Biden White House has publicly acknowledged,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“It is disturbing to see a White House cover-up of numerous injuries to Secret Service and White House personnel by the Bidens’ family pet.”
Indeed, it invites the question: If the Biden administration is willing to cover up dog bites… what else are they hiding?
