Army’s First Transgender Officer, Wife Indicted for Allegedly Trying to Leak Soldiers’ Medical Info to Russia

Army’s First Transgender Officer, Wife Indicted for Allegedly Trying to Leak Soldiers’ Medical Info to Russia

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

A federal grand jury in Baltimore, MD, indicted Major Jamie Lee Henry, the Army’s first openly transgender officer, and his wife Dr. Anna Gabrielian for allegedly trying to leak soldiers’ confidential medical information to Russia.

Gabrielian is an anesthesiologist, while Henry works “as a doctor at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.” His position gave him secret security clearance.

The DOJ charged Gabrielian and Henry with conspiracy and seven counts of disclosure of individually identifiable health information.

The conspiracy, as stated in the indictment:

From in or around August 17, 2022. through the present, in the District of Maryland and elsewhere, the defendants, ANNA GABRIELIAN and JAMIE LEE HENRY, did knowingly and unlawfully combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with each other to commit offenses against the United States, that is, to knowingly obtain and disclose IIHI [individually identifiable health information] maintained by a covered entity to another person, without patient authorization and for a reason other than permitted by HIPAA and its regulations, in violation of42 U.S.C. § 1320d-6(a), with intent to transfer IIHI for malicious harm, in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 1320d-6 (b)(3).

The federal government caught Gabrielian and Henry when they thought they passed the information to a Russian official. The person was an undercover FBI agent.

The indictment claimed Gabrielian and Henry met with the undercover agent numerous times.

The undercover agent approached Gabrielian around August 17 “about the assistance she offered a couple months ago”:

GABRIELIAN then told the UC that she had previously reached out directly to the Russian Embassy by email and phone, offering Russia her and her husband HENRY‘s assistance. GABRIELIAN also told the UC that although HENRY knew she was reaching out to the Russian Embassy on both their behalf, GABRIELIAN had never mentioned HENRY‘s name in her interactions with the Russian Embassy, and HENRY could claim he was unaware of her actions if needed.

Henry met the agent with Gabrielian later in the evening on August 17. Henry expressed his desire to join the Russian Army but could not do it since the country wanted people with combat experience.

Henry said his aspiration came from America “using Ukrainians as a proxy for their own hatred for Russia.”

Gabrielian detailed how the two of them could help Russia even though Henry voiced concerns “about passing a background check for his security clearance” and “ethical issues” he had “to work through”:

j- During that same meeting in the hotel room on August 17, 2022, GABRIELIAN instructed the UC on how she and HENRY could be most useful to Russia. Referring to herself and HENRY. GABRIELIAN stated:

If you have a useful long-term weapon, that can be used for years. If you use it for something that’s not tactically advantageous, you’ve lost it for nothing. So if [HENRY] can’t practice medicine, can’t be in the National Guard, you’ve lost an Anny doctor. If I have to look somebody up, and I do look somebody up, you’ve lost a link to [my employer] to establish those medical connections. It has to be something massively important, not just check if this person has polyps.

k. At another point during the meeting on August 17, 2022, HENRY and GABRIELIAN offered to provide the UC with private medical records from the U.S. Anny and Medical Institution 1 in order to help the Russian government.

Gabrielian showed her inner Lady Macbeth as the meeting went on. She explained how she made Henry read the book Inside the Aquarium, “which describes the recruitment and training of a Soviet-era Russian spy.”

“Because it’s the mentality of sacrificing everything…and loyalty in you from day one. That’s not something you walked away from,” she allegedly told the agent.

Gabrielian also snapped at Henry, telling him he would “work through those ethical issues” he worried about when accessing the medical records.

Then, on August 24, Gabrielian unleashed her complete inner Lady Macbeth:

q- On August 24, 2022, GABRIELIAN and the UC met at a hotel room in Baltimore, Maryland. During that meeting, GABRIELIAN stated that although HENRY was a “coward,” and concerned about violating HIPAA by providing records to the UC, GABRIELIAN had no such concerns and violated HIPAA “all the time.” GABRIELIAN further told the UC she would check with HENRY about providing medical records from Fort Bragg patients and get back in touch.

Gabrielian and Henry met with the UC on August 30 at a hotel in Gaithersburg, MD. Henry gave the agent information “related to at least five individuals who were patients at Fort Bragg.”

Henry entered the public eye in 2015, becoming the first openly transgender active-duty Army officer. He told Buzzfeed News, “My story is not unique.”

Henry and Gabrielian married in 2015. They have two children.

The neighbors said the couple “generally kept to themselves.” They rarely saw Henry since he worked in North Carolina. They mostly saw the kids with Gabrielian’s mother.

The Baltimore Banner also revealed the neighborhood has connections to Russia: “Russian-born neighbor Sergey Pinchuk said he would sometimes speak with Gabrielian about his ailing dog’s health in Russian.”

Comments

He looks like Janet Reno’s high school yearbook photo.

Looks like Gary Busey in “Under Seige”.

Henry is referred to by male pronouns. Nice!

I am really not a fan of trying to cast doubt on the loyalty of Russian Americans, or imply that an interest in the culture of your neighbors will make you loyal to that country over yours. Plenty of Americans have learned some Spanish and speak to Hispanic neighbors in Spanish.

By the way there are Russian communities throughout the United States that vote Republican. There is no need to discuss that he has Russian neighbors. I don’t want a return of the early 20th century Slavophobia.

    The point was that the woman speaks Russian.

      It said the neighborhood has ties to Russia (in the original source it said Soviet Bloc) what was provided was only that there are Russian Americans living there.

      If there is some kind of way to read that without the overt implication that Russian Americans are disloyal I would love to hear it.

      Knowing Russian is not suspicious activity either, especially not if you live in a neighborhood with lots of Russian Americans.

      To put the comment about living near Russians in context an actual Chinese person passed information to the CCP would it have been even remotely acceptable to point out that person lived among Chinese Americans (hint it wouldn’t have been which is why nobody did that).

      Both in the original source and repeating that original source something completely unacceptable was done. It was an attack on an ethnic group and a completely unprovoked one (not that a Russian American being disloyal would justify attacking all of them anyway).

Mental patients in our service, what progress! (sarc). And traitorous to boot! Proof: Who in their right mind would go to a hotel in Baltimore these days? Only the mentally impaired…

    Austin and Milley are feeling so many thrills up their legs over this that they’ve called the electrician to check the building grounding.

    How does a mentally ill person get a security clearance?

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Joe-dallas. | September 30, 2022 at 2:23 pm

      Ask Joseph R. Biden.

      MrPeabody in reply to Joe-dallas. | September 30, 2022 at 2:51 pm

      I can’t tell you. It’s Top Secret.

      Unless things have changed since I served, pretty much everybody had/has a Secret clearance. It doesn’t require any special investigation beyond the usual enlistment records checks.

      Same way that they fly the gay rainbow flag over the embassy in Afghanistan (or at least they used to). The same way we have a transgender as the head of the Public Health Service (and a “General” no less). The same way we have the head of the HHS advocating chemical castration for children. The same way we have transgenders traipsing around the White House. The same way . . . well do you want me to continue?

      The lunatics have escaped the asylum and are now heII bent on destroying the country.

So does his “wife” still get lez cred for marrying him?

“Henry expressed his desire to join the Russian Army but could not do it since the country wanted people with combat experience.”

The Russians were too nice to tell him that they needed a tranny about as badly as Putin needs a Kotex.

Why is a mentally ill person even in this position?

Hth can you read “Inside the Aquarium” and come away thinking that being a Soviet agent is a positive thing?

Literally, the author defects because he cannot handle betraying another friend.

Why isn’t he trannyed up now?

Is this Dr Henry a woman pretending to be a man or a man pretending to be a woman? Calling it a tranny doesn’t help. Although I guess it doesn’t really make any difference.

Men’s and women’s necks are different, as any sculptor can tell you. The way it joins to the shoulders.

sounds like a bunch of BS

Well, after the ‘leak” of the personal clearance background information db some years ago, apparently the Russians decided personal info on people in the armed forces would be similarly useful.

Anybody who believes that prior ‘leak” was an accident, I have some swamp land in Arizona for sale.

It used to be easy when the Chinese ran the honey pots with Fang Fang and Fartwell. This new age soldier is tricky. What person do you throw at them and what pronoun do you use. /s

OL’ Henry lost his balls way before he lost his mind

Imagine married to a Karen, being a tranny in the service and a traitor

Those poor freaking kids

bunch of c*nts.
come on you all wanted to say it I just did it.

Why are there so many weirdos, freaks, and mentally ill and/or incompetent people in positions of power and authority?

It’s easy to say told you so since the Manning days but the military has the foot on the woke gas pedal and won’t listen anytime soon.

I hope the feds don’t forget to add on the HIPAA charges for the medical info they passed. Five counts is up to $250,000, right, on top of whatever the espionage charges result in?

I heard this story on the CBS Radio Network news at 6pm CT yesterday. I found it curious that Henry was referred to as Gabrielian’s “husband” and that no mention of Henry’s trans status was made. I thought our woke commissars wanted us to celebrate every “first” made by the sexual orientation alphabet soup.

Every single adult I have ever met that has come out as trans has had some kind of history of mental illness. Correlation isn’t causation, sure, but I think it’s something that needs to be looked into.

    Not to mention- one big sign of mental illness is coming out as trans.

    Up until very recently being ‘trans’ WAS explicitly defined as a type of mental illness. Of course, as they like to do, the proggies have re-defined the meanings of words so this is no longer the case as far as the medical journals go. But all reasonable people can agree that anybody who wants to mutilate their own genitals is flat-out cray-cray.

    Otto Kringelein in reply to Antifundamentalist. | October 1, 2022 at 2:55 pm

    There was once a time when transgenderism was considered a mental illness and was listed in the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as “Gender Identity Disorder (GID). But the psychological community decided to change the name to “Gender Dysphoria” and redefine the mental illness as not a mental illness to be cured but one to be encouraged in those that suffer GID in the latest edition (DSM-V).

That woman has a heck of an Adam’s apple. At what point are transgenders simply transvestites???

    Antifundamentalist in reply to CincyJan. | September 30, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    It’s a new name for an old label, I suppose. I’d think that transvestite would be the appropriate term until surgeries have been completed, you know, to show the world that you are serious about it. Up to that point, I suspect it’s just attention-seeking behavior most of the time.

Coincidentally The Atlantic just published an article on how great it is that Ukraine is doing so well b/c they’ve got the rainbow while bad old Russia isn’t into that stuff . . .

Wow a lot of firsts here. First transgender Army officer; first transgender Army officer arrested for being a Russian SPY.

What a GREAT accomplishment for the trans community!!! They must be so proud!!!

Wait, he is being charged with a HIPPAA violation??

PLEASE tell me that’s just a placeholder and more charges are to come. I can think of at least 3 UCMJ articles he (apparently) violated right off the top of my head.

Make that ‘HIPAA’. It’s late and I’m out of coffee.

Every so often, an officer comes up for an Officer Efficiency Report. Every six months. When leaving a post. When one’s commander is leaving. Lots of room for evaluations.
Think this clown merited good OER? Get promoted over peers? Me neither. Like Nidal Hasan’s appalling professional performance….mox nix when you’re a Protected Class. Nobody dares to give you under top-freaking-outstanding, Chief of Staff material.”
Don’t want to be a called a bigot.

    One of the primary protected officer classes in the military are medical personnel (of which this turd was one). Scholarship to med school on full pay and bennies, bonuses, deep selection for promotion, etc, etc. Add a minority or ‘oppressed’ tag on that record and they are all but untouchable.

Manning was enlisted I seem to think.
