For the last several years, conservative group Judicial Watch, along with many a right-wing Republican, devoted countless hours in an attempt to take down joe and Hunter Biden for alleged crimes that took place abroad. Filing at least a dozen lawsuits and “dozens of Freedom of Information Act requests,” the organization, which spent years tormenting Bill and Hillary Clinton by “carpet-bomb[ing] the federal courts,” said as recently as last month that it was “working hard to get more information on the Biden Family scandals.” Unfortunately, thus far, their efforts have yielded little in the way of current information implicating the president or his son. And so, the group has apparently decided to expand its investigation to other Biden family members. Specifically, Champ and Major Biden. Yes, the president’s dogs. No, this is not a joke.
In a press release issued on Tuesday, Judicial Watch announced that it had filed a lawsuit against the US Department of Homeland Security for “records of communication between Secret Service officials assigned to the White House regarding the Biden family dogs.” The suit was filed after the Secret Service, which Judicial Watch apparently thinks has nothing better to do, “failed to process records in a timely manner in response to a March 10, 2021, FOIA request.” That request sought “All records of communications between USSS officials responsible for protection at the White House regarding the Biden family dogs, named Champ and Major,” and was apparently inspired by the news that Major had nipped at two individuals at the White House. In a statement, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said, “The public has a right to know the details about any incident in which Secret Service personnel were injured by President Biden’s dog. We have no doubt that Major and Champ are good dogs but politicians and bureaucrats can’t be trusted.” Seriously.
Last month, Major was sat away for a second round of training after nipping a Secret Service agent’s hand in March and then a National Park Service employee in April. It’s not clear, exactly, what Judicial Watch believes it may uncover through this not-at-all waste of taxpayer dollars, but strong possibilities likely include:
- Emails showing Champ received $100,000 from a lobbying firm working on behalf of Big Kibble
- A cover-up by the White House communications staff regarding a Washington Post story it had killed about both dogs not letting the Secret Service agents detailed to them use their bathrooms
- A multiyear endorsement deal Major signed with Pup-Peroni three days after the inauguration, despite it being illegal for first pets to profit off of the presidency
- Evidence pointing to Major’s involvement with Hunter Biden’s Burisma dealings
- a sex scandal
At the end of April, the Bidens announced that they will soon be adding a cat to the first family. But where did that cat come from? What skeletons are in its closet? Hopefully Judicial Watch will be on that case too.
In other Giuliani news
The guy could apparently use some cash, but his notoriously cheap pal has not offered to cough any up, per New York Times:
According to the Times‘ sources, Kerik has made “similar complaints” to some of Trump’s advisers in private, arguing that Giuliani’s legal expenses are directly related to his efforts to help the ex-president, which include his failed attempt to dig up dirt on the Bidens and later , in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Asked about Kerik’s tweet, Andrew Giuliani said his father “should be indemnified,” adding, “I think all those Americans that donated after November 3, they were donating for the legal defense fund. My father ran the legal team at that point. So I think it’s very easy to make a very strong case for the fact that he and all the lawyers that he worked on there should be indemnified.
