On Monday (November 21), an Israeli woman filed a lawsuit alleging that a Secret Service agent assaulted her during an advance trip to the country before President Joe Biden visited Israel.

The Israeli woman, Tamar Ben Haim, filed a lawsuit in a D.C. District Court against the agent, only referred to as “John Doe” in the lawsuit.

Ben Haim claims Doe slapped her “repeatedly” in what is described as a “vicious assault.”

The Israeli explained she was walking home at about 1 a.m. when she was attacked; she added that the person accompanying the Secret Service agent had to pull him off her.

Ben Haim claimed that at the time of the alleged attack, she wasn’t aware that her attacker was a Secret Service agent and only learned later that he was part of the advance team preparing for Biden’s visit.

The lawsuit details that Ben Haim believed she was experiencing “her last moments on Earth” during the attack.

The lawsuit also claims the Secret Service is attempting to evade the Freedom of Information Act by “refusing to disclose his identity.”

In a July interview with Fox News, Ben Haim shared that she believed Israeli police had deliberately kept her out of the loop after she contacted them the night of her attack.

A statement the Secret Service released at the time of Ben Haim’s interview only declared that an unnamed agent had been sent back to the U.S. following a “physical encounter” that caused the agent to be detained by Israeli police.

At the time, a source elaborated that the assault occurred outside a bar.
