President Joe Biden’s dog, Major, appeared to have emerged unscathed after a pair of biting incidents on White House property, but a recent court filing suggests otherwise.
According to the Washington Examiner, conservative organization Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents that will shed more light on reports that the animal bit a U.S. Secret Service agent and a Park Service official in two separate incidents.
“A right to know”
Specifically, the group wants documents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security showing “records of communication between Secret Service officials assigned to the White House regarding the Biden family dogs.”
Major is believed to have been the dog responsible for both bites, but Judicial Watch is also requesting communication records regarding the president’s other dog, Champ.
Tom Fitton, the group’s president, insisted that the “public has a right to know the details about any incident in which Secret Service personnel were injured by President Biden’s dog.”
He went on to give both pets the benefit of the doubt, describing them as “good dogs” while cautioning that “politicians and bureaucrats can’t be trusted.”
Both bites were reported in March, with the first causing a “minor injury” to a Secret Service agent and the second requiring “medical attention” for a National Park Service official.
“These new documents suggest a conspiracy”
Major was reportedly sent to obedience school following the first incident, which was the only information provided pertaining to a consequence for the dog.
Judicial Watch is focused on much more than misbehaving White House pets. As the group awaits an outcome in this case, it is making headlines after reportedly uncovering documents believed to implicate California officials in collusion with various social media firms ahead of November’s election.
A Biden-linked communications firm was allegedly involved in an attempt to censor certain social media posts, including some created by Judicial Watch.
“These new documents suggest a conspiracy against the First Amendment rights of Americans by the California Secretary of State, the Biden campaign operation, and Big Tech,” declared Fitton.
While conservatives across the country applaud Judicial Watch and other groups attempting to shed light on governmental wrongdoing, one would hope that the dogs do not get into too much trouble as a result.
