The cute and cuddly facade of White House pets took a hit with President Joe Biden’s dogs, it seems, as new information indicates one of the president’s dogs has made many more attacks than the White House previously indicated.
Newly released emails reported by Fox News show that Major, one of the president’s German Shepards, bit members of the Secret Service as many as eight days in a row in early March.
Reporting at the time seemed to indicate that the presidential pooch bit Secret Service members only one time.
In addition to the White House regulars who were terrorized by the dog, at least one visitor to the White Hosue was bitten around the same time, according to the emails.
The conservative government transparency group, Judicial Watch, slammed what they called a “cover-up” of the event surrounding the aggressive dog:
“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,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“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.”
Both Major and Biden’s now-deceased dog Champ were taken back to Delaware early in March for what White House officials called prearranged visits with family friends.
At the time of the attacks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki brushed the incidents under the rug saying that “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.”
