Judicial Watch: Records Detail Biden Dog Attacks on Secret Service Personnel

By Judicial Watch


‘Can we please find a way to get this dog muzzled’ – Secret Service official 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it received 116 pages of United States Secret Service (USSS) records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that reveal the details about several incidents in which Secret Service personnel were bitten by President Biden’s dog Commander, sometimes requiring medical attention.

The records come in response to a February 2024 lawsuit that was filed after the Department of Homeland Security failed to respond to a September 27, 2023, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:24-cv-00429)). Judicial Watch asks for:                  

Any and all records related to incidents of aggression and bites involving the Biden family dog, “Commander”, including but not limited to communications sent to and from USSS officials in the Uniformed and Non-Uniformed Divisions involved in White House operations and the Presidential Protection Division.           

The newly obtained records include a September 12, 2023, email between Secret Service officials stating:

As I started to walk toward him to see if he needed help, Commander ran through his legs and bit my left arm through the front of my jacket. I pulled my arm away and yelled no. POTUS also yelled [redacted] to Commander. POTUS then [redacted]. I obliged and Commander let me pet him. When turning to close the door, Commander jumped again and bit my left arm for the second time. POTUS again yelled at Commander and attached the leash to him. My suit coat has 3 holes,1 being all the way through. No skin was broken.  

On September 14, 2023, an agent in the Presidential Protective Detail, whose name is redacted, using the subject line “5/12/2021” sent an email to a colleague with several attachments, including photos of suits, repair estimates and a “Damage to Personal Property” form indicating that a dog biting incident had occurred on May 12, 2021. In the claim form, the agent asks for $943 for a new suit, because: “Through no fault or negligence of my own, the coat was torn by a dog bite.”

On September 25, 2023, a sergeant in the Uniformed Division emails a colleague that Commander bit an agent that day…
