The Secret Service story is about Biden’s dog….
One would assume that if a President has close in security issues with some people…
(Allegience to Trump showing?)….
He would talk to the ‘Service’ boss about taking care of the problem…..
According to a new book offering an inside look at President Joe Biden’s White House, Biden actively distrusts the Secret Service to the point that he does not speak freely in front of his agents and he believed that the agency lied about an incident where Biden’s German shepherd Major bit an agent.
In The Fight of His Life, out January 17, author Chris Whipple details how Biden was showing a friend around the White House and pointed to the spot where Major allegedly bit a member of Biden’s security team. “Look, the Secret Service are never up here. It didn’t happen,” said Biden.

As part of the transition process, Biden’s team actively planned for the possibility that Trump would use the US military to help overturn the election. The concerns were shared by other top officials as well, and it’s been amply reported by other chroniclers of the Trump administration that Mark Milley, chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi communicated concerns about Trump to each other. But as Whipple reports, Pelosi didn’t just talk to Milley about their shared anxieties; she also served as an intermediary between Milley and the Biden team during the transition. Biden’s concerns about the peaceful transition of power were so omnipresent before he took office that his advisers blamed it, in part, for contributing to the military’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan….
