FAST FIVE: First Openly Trans Army Officer Caught Trying To Pass Classified Info To Russia

Published by on

First Openly Trans Army Officer Caught Trying To Pass Classified Info To Russia In a Thursday breaking and quite bizarre story of many “firsts”, a transgender US Army officer has been charged with stealing classified medical records from Fort Bragg and seeking to hand them over to the Russian government.

They thought they were preparing to hand off secret stolen records to a Russian official, but it turned out to be an FBI agent.  Another strange aspect to the story is that there's a Ukraine war angle, as CNBC explains: Prosecutors said the couple, 39-year-old Maj.

Jamie Lee Henry, and Johns Hopkins Hospital anesthesiologist Anna Gabrielian, 36, aimed to help Russia in its ongoing war against Ukraine.

But the person who ended up receiving medical information from them turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, not a Russian Embassy employee as the couple had been led to believe, prosecutors said.

Later that same day, she called the agent “to reaffirm” the couple “were committed to helping Russia,” the indictment alleges.
