Psaki accused of lying after emails say Biden’s dog, Major, bit Secret Service on 8 straight days

Published

If the White House lies about little things — what about the big things?

President Biden’s dog Major bit a few more people than the White House told the public, found in recently released emails. A reporter asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki about the dog incidents, but also questioned the honesty of the White House when it comes to more significant problems, such as Afghanistan.

Watchdog group Judicial Watch acquired emails from United States Secret Service members, which showed that multiple people at the White House were attacked by Biden’s dog, Major. The emails, which were acquired through a Freedom of Information Act request, divulged that Major bit Secret Service agents eight days in a row in early March — but the White House only said that there was one biting incident.

“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,” a member of Secret Service said in an email that was sent to a few colleagues on March 8.

The problems with the president’s 3-year-old German shepherd are said to have begun at the end of February at Biden’s home in Delaware.

“This weekend in Wilmington, there were 3 minor incidents where Major nipped/ brushed up and nudged,” a March 1 email read.

Secret Service agents were given safety measures, “Panicking or running with only embolden animals so stand your ground and protect your hands/fingers by placing them in your pockets or behind your back.”

Despite the advisory, the aggressive behavior by the dog went on at the White House. Some of the bites drew blood of the Secret Service members, and one dog bite “required medical attention.”

After more biting incidents at the White House, agent David Cho, head of the Presidential Protective Division detail, suggested that Major get training from a dog trainer who worked with the dog of former President Barack Obama.

A March 8 email stated, “The dogs are being transported to Delaware and will stay there for an undetermined time. The family will use a trainer they have used previously.”

Major, and Biden’s other dog, Champ, were taken back to Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware. The White House alleged the trip was a planned visit with family friends.

On March 9, Psaki confirmed that Major bit someone at the White House, and caused a “minor injury.” She added, “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.”

On Friday, Psaki was questioned about why she said there was only one biting incident at a March 9 briefing when there were a few incidents. New York Post reporter Steven Nelson, who asked the question, admitted that the dog biting incident “is not the world’s most important story but it is significant because we expect honest information, even for minor stories.”

“As we’ve stated previously, Major has had some challenges adjusting to life in the White House,” she continued without answering the question about transparency. “He has been receiving additional training, as well as spending some time in Delaware, where the environment is more familiar to him and he is more comfortable.”

President Joe Biden said that Pope Francis let him know he was a “good Catholic” and said he could keep on taking communion regardless of the complaints of numerous U.S. bishops.

Biden made the case after a private gathering with the pontiff at the Vatican on Friday.

“We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion,” Biden said about the gathering.

He added that the topic of abortion didn’t come up in the gathering.

An assertion from the White House showed that Biden said thanks to the Pope for pushing for an “equitable global economic recovery” and for battling global warming.

“Biden thanked His Holiness for his advocacy for the world’s poor and those suffering from hunger, conflict, and persecution,” the assertion added.

Gold Star father David Horton slammed President Joe Biden in a meeting Sunday, scrutinizing the Biden organization’s accounted for plan to convey huge financial installments to some migrant families.

The Wall Street Journal announced last week about the arrangement to pay migrant families affected by previous President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance illegal immigration policies.

The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.

Among the issues pundits have raised with the arrangement, the greatest is that non-citizens remain to get additional cash from the U.S. government than gold star families if the arrangement becomes reality.

As of now, the U.S. government pays the group of fallen assistance individuals $100,000 in “death gratuity”; the installments are tax excluded. The families of service members additionally have the choice to gather a limit of $400,000 in extra security, however administration individuals need to pay into the protection intend to accept its advantages.

Speaking on “Fox and Friends,” Horton — whose son, Army Spc. Christopher Horton, was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 — proclaimed the Biden administration’s arrangement “an insult” and clarified it disrespects military families.

“I think it’s another — yet another insult … against our military families and Gold Star families and veterans’ families,” Horton said. “It’s just another another slap in the face. It’s completely disrespectful.”

“To compare an illegal person who has broken our country’s border laws … they’ve broken the law coming in on our borders and to compare that with someone, a patriot like my son, who gave his all on the battlefield of Afghanistan, and to just say, ‘Oh well, the value is more for someone who has broken our laws’ … and now to say, ‘Oh, we owe you money — and it’s more money than we would pay a patriot — I am outraged,” Horton said.

“You just wonder, where is the outcry against some of these policies that are just there? Unbelievable to me,” Horton added.
