President Biden refuses to open up with Secret Service and believes agents lied in dog bite accident


President Biden refuses to open up with

the Secret Service :

and believes agents lied about a dog bite incident.

A new book about the Biden White House revealed that President Joe Biden was so disturbed by the Secret Service's handling of the text requested by the House Select Committee on January 6 that he stopped speaking out against the special agents assigned to his protection details.

"The Fight of His Life:

Inside Joe Biden's White House"

author Chris Whipple wrote that Biden's dissatisfaction with the post-Trump

agency began early in his presidency when it became clear that "Some" agents who were supposed to protect him from assassination were strong supporters of former President Donald Trump, who defeated him in the 2020 election.

Whipple wrote in :

the book that Biden simply did not trust agents

and noted that this attitude is a stark contrast to what he felt during his years as vice president when he became too close to clients regarding his details.

A copy of the book

obtained by The Independent prior to its release on 17 January 2023

supports this claim.

The President should not have been surprised that there were "MAGA sympathizers" among his bodyguards, since the Secret Service was "full of white former South policemen who tended to be very conservative".

The March 2021 incident involving the three-year-old Secret Service agent and leading German shepherd significantly undermined Biden's confidence in his security details.

Major was the first rescue dog to serve as the first dog

and was adopted by Biden of the Delaware Humane Association in 2018.

On March 8, 2021, he reportedly bit a member of the Secret Service.

in the White House residence area. As a result

he was briefly transferred to Delaware for training ; 


he bit a National Park Service employee shortly after arriving at the White House at the end of the month.

Whipple claims that Biden has some reservations about

the details of the bite incident initially reported.

No one objected to an incident

but the President was not convinced by the facts

in particular the reported sight of the alleged bite, as alleged by the author.

Whipple reveals that while touring the family's headquarters

in the White House :

  • The president reportedly told the friend
  • "Look, the Secret Service is never here,"

referring to the alleged bite scene

which was on the second floor of the executive headquarters. It didn't happen.

Biden believed that "somebody was lying.

on the manner in which the incident fell ".

The President has been surrounded by members of the Secret Service for more than eight years, first as Vice President, then again as a competitor, then as President-elect, and finally as President.

However, the organization's responses to the horrific Capitol attack

instigated by its predecessor

further strained its relationship with the men and women who signed a section defending the United States Constitution and protecting any United States president.

Whipple claims that Biden suffered

"very close to home" influences of Mr. Trump's alleged "Make America Great Again" movement while serving in the Secret Service.

The failure of agents on Trump's details to keep and send text messages as of January 5, 2021, the day before the Capitol attack, and January 6, 2021, the day of the attack itself, made the agency "look both incompetent and politicized."

The Secret Service

usually known for its technical prowess

claimed that the deletions were the result of "relay" during routine mobile upgrades.

He was also a Trump appointee

Department of Homeland Security Inspector General Joseph Kovari, who asked agents to send messages and later told Congress that all but one message had been lost irrecoverably.

On January 6, the House Select Committee made known that

  • Mike Pence, a former vice president, really
  • get into a car with his protection details during
  • the attack for fear they would have taken him away in
  • support of Trump's efforts to stay in office illegally.

In the light of these revelations

Whipple wrote that Biden "took no chances" with his bodyguards.

Wary of his Secret Service agents, the president no longer speaks freely in their presence.
