‘Trans’ Army Officer Indicted for Spying

Our nation’s first-ever openly “transgender” officer tried to give our warriors’ private health information to the Russians.

The Left loves to trumpet certain firsts: Barack Obama was the first Marxist president, Sonia Sotomayor was the first dumb Supreme Court justice, Karine Jean-Pierre was the first incompetent communicator as White House press secretary — firsts like that.

More recently, the Left celebrated another first when Richard Levine, who at some point changed his name to Rachel, became the first — wait for it! — four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Forgive us if we don’t mention him in the same breath as Jones, Farragut, Nimitz, Halsey, or Spruance.

And this brings us to yet another first, that of Jamie Lee Henry, who achieved media-darling status in 2015 as the first openly “transgender” officer in the U.S. military.

As it turns out, Henry is a dirty, rotten, Russian spy. Allegedly. As The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Army’s first openly transgender officer was indicted Thursday on charges of trying to provide American soldiers’ medical information to the Russian government.

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. According to prosecutors, the couple met last month with an undercover FBI agent posing as a Russian diplomat and offered medical information from Fort Bragg, the home of the military’s elite Delta Force.

Interestingly, though, many of our nation’s leading news organizations aren’t nearly as interested in reporting Henry’s newly unique status as the nation’s first openly transgender officer ever to be indicted for spying. The Washington Post, for example, dutifully covered the story, but there’s no mention of Henry’s transgenderism in either the headline or in the subhead. But most stunningly and disgracefully and despicably, there’s no mention of Major Henry’s special status in the entire 810-word article.

Nothingtoseeheremovealong, say the agenda-driven activists at the Post.

We’re not inclined to move along, though. In fact, we’re inclined to recall another one of the Left’s gender warriors, an Army traitor named Bradley “Chelsea” Manning, whose too-light 35-year sentence was shamefully commuted by Barack Obama. Recall that Manning, who is pathologically gender-confused, was convicted of espionage for funneling 750,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks and thereby doing immeasurable damage to American national security.

Here’s an idea for our woke military: Let’s stop giving Top Secret or other advanced security clearances to weirdos, oddballs, and other mentally unstable individuals — for example, those who struggle with whether they’re men or women.

As for the Post and its fellow travelers, these agenda-driven activists’ selective refusal to report certain key details about the accused reminds us of how they tend to treat politicians who run afoul of the law: If it’s a Republican, the political affiliation goes in the headline and the lead paragraph. But if the malefactor is a Democrat, the affiliation either gets slipped into the story’s 28th paragraph, or it gets omitted entirely.

And to think they got their panties all in a bunch when Donald Trump once famously said, “The Fake News media … is the enemy of the American people.”
