First Openly Transgender U.S. Army Officer Indicted for Passing Confidential Info to Russians

The U.S. Army’s first openly transgender officer was indicted Thursday on charges of trying to pass the confidential medical information of U.S. soldiers to the Russians.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, a federal grand jury in Baltimore indicted Jamie Lee Henry and his wife, Anna Gabrielian, on charges of conspiracy and wrongful disclosure of individually identifiable health information.

The government charges that Henry tried to pass the information to an undercover FBI agent posing as a Russian diplomat. The information reportedly contained medical records from soldiers at Fort Bragg, the home of the military’s Delta Force.

Per the WFB:

Gabrielian, an anesthesiologist at Johns Hopkins University, told the undercover agent during an Aug. 17 meeting that “she was motivated by patriotism toward Russia to provide any assistance she could to Russia, even if it meant being fired or going to jail,” according to the indictment. Gabrielian gave the undercover agent medical information on a spouse of someone who works in the Office of Naval Intelligence, and “highlighted” a medical issue that “Russia could exploit.”

Henry, a doctor at Fort Bragg, gave the undercover agent information on five patients at the military facility, according to the indictment, first reported by the Baltimore Banner.

Henry has been praised as a pioneer of the transgender movement after coming out as transgender in an interview with BuzzFeed News in 2015. Henry claimed to be the first known active-duty Army officer to come out as transgender, and the first to legally change their name while in service.

Henry has since rejected his transgender status, according tp Reuters reporter Sarah N. Lynch:

Lynch further noted that Henry used the pronoun “him” in court, further clarifying that he no longer claims to be transgender.
