Daniel MacDougall, commonly called "MacDougall", or misspelled McDougall, is a Secret Service agent and was considered an antagonist of Daniel Larson's story. He has been assigned to work on cases involving Daniel with their connection frequently cited in relation to multiple incidents and statements made by Daniel Larson, emphasizing MacDougall's role in addressing the situations. The information about MacDougall is scant, and mostly unknown besides Daniel talking to him, and as evidence commonly by mouth or few screenshots of texts between them. While MacDougall is a real person and may have been in contact with Daniel at one point, his name was used by trolls to trick Daniel into various things.[1] How much interaction he has and has had with Daniel and his current plans was highly debated in the community.[2] However, MacDougall's official authenticity and role within the Larson universe was confirmed following Daniel's arrest on 7 federal counts of making threats.

Relation to Daniel Larson

It's unclear when MacDougall came into the picture, but he has been mentioned around mid August of 2023 on the r/daniellarson subreddit. The reason MacDougall was involved was because Daniel has made threats towards the White House, which included bomb threats.

During Daniel's Dog Arc, Daniel says "...I am done, and I will not stop until the White House is blown up." [3]. The incident is known as the 7/11 Incident or the July 11th Incident, where he was reported to enter a Walmart and began to destroy things, where the police were called. Daniel then made multiple 9-1-1 calls, in attempt to "get some security out here" where one of the calls included him making threats towards the White House, and claiming to have a bomb [4], "...Okay so I just called 9-1-1 and I just literally just screamed I have a bomb on the 9-1-1 number and randomly hung up in hopes to get this situation heard...". Daniel makes multiple calls towards 9-1-1, asking for "security protection" [5].

On August 30, 2023, Daniel went live in a video titled "Daniel Larson on his way to meet up with the investigator", and at the very end of the live stream Daniel is approaching two people who greet him and ask if he would stop live streaming, which Daniel promptly does. Many people suspect that one of the men here was MacDougall. [6][7]

Interaction beings around 7:00

On October 10th, 2023, McDougall was allegedly impersonated by three males, who appeared to be there to speak to Daniel, as two sat across at another table Daniel and one sat with Daniel, it was clear they all had a relation to each other as one started to smile and laugh and abruptly left. The video is very short, so it is unclear what there intention was and if it was to actually impersonate McDougall [8].

On October 29th, 2023, Daniel proclaims that secret service agent Daniel MacDougall has asked him to sever his ties with Micheal Quinn and “Roll the T-shirts”.[Citation Needed]

On November 11th, 2023, Daniel went live and at one pointed closer to the end of the eleven minute stream, he claims that MacDougall got involved because of his merchandise, and that it was part of the reason he got involved because he investigates financial fraud. It is not outlined why MacDougall had to investigate the merchandise [9].

On December 10th, 2023, Daniel thought he was going to have dinner with Daniel MacDougall, along with Grace VanderWaal at Olive Garden, which lead to be a fiasco.

On December 22nd, 2023, Clark who is part of Daniel Larsons Management claimed to befriend MacDougall according to Daniel [10]. Shortly after, Daniel uploads another TikTok saying that MacDougall talked to Clark and "is demanding that Clark records all phone calls with me, and Clark is claiming that he denied it." [11]. A few days later, on Christmas Daniel says "I will fucking have Daniel MacDougall fucking killed." [12].

MacDougall is more than likely impersonated, considering how trolls try to impersonate people such as Grace VanderWaal to manipulate Daniel into saying or doing things [13].

On December 25, 2023, Reddit user nancyshimer posted to Reddit claiming to have emailed MacDougall from the pseudonym Todd Baysinger a video from the Christmas Day Meltdown where he threatens MacDougles life. [14] The user later posted that he responded with "Thanks, I’m aware. If he makes any further similar posts, let me know." [15]

On December 31st, 2023, a troll impersonating MacDougall commented on one of Daniel's TikTok videos and Daniel believed it. A couple videos after the comment a video was uploaded where he says that MacDougall had called him to tell him the same thing. [16]

MacDougall Impersonator telling Daniel he is being investigated for tax fraud

On February 15th, 2024, MacDougall is brought up during Daniel Larson's Jail Arc, which was the first call. The mention was minimum, however Flexburger asked Daniel if a "... ununiformed police officer who I honestly think was MacDougall..." was undercover in the jail. Daniel said he doesn't think it was, however he does think it was somebody from the F.B.I." [1]

MacDougall had Daniel arrested on the 30th of April 2024. (see below)

Relation to the Secret Service

Daniel MacDougall is employed by the United States Secret Service, being assigned to the Denver Field Office in July 2020, where he focused on fraud related issues to small businesses, with a focus on Economic Injury Disaster Loans [18]. It is possible that MacDougall was not related to the investigations of Daniel's threats towards the White House, but that he was involved in investigating potential fraud connected to Daniel, but possible that he also investigated him because of the threats.
