First trans officer and wife indicted for passing Russians medical documents

The first trans officer in the US Army and her wife, a physician at Johns Hopkins, have been accused for seeking to provide the Russian government with medical records of senior military commanders and their families.


The Baltimore Banner stated that Major Jamie Lee Henry and Dr. Anna Gabrielian were suspected of exploiting their secret security clearance at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg to steal medical records from the base hospital.

About 52,000 active duty soldiers are stationed at Fort Bragg, making it one of the most populous military outposts in the world. The installation is home to the Delta Force and Special Operations Forces of the United States Army.

The pair had spoken with and met with an undercover FBI agent they believed to be from the Russian embassy in order to transfer files that the Kremlin “might exploit.”

According to the Thursday revealed indictment, Gabrielian stated she was motivated by her loyalty to Russia, with Henry utilizing her clearance as a staff internist to assist in securing the data.

Henry allegedly informed the undercover agent when they met in August to set up the deal, “Until the United States really declares war against Russia, I am able to assist as much as I want.”

At that time, I will face some ethical concerns that I will need to resolve.

Gabrielian allegedly said, “You’ll get through those ethical difficulties,” and added that Henry was a “coward” for fear of violating HIPPA.

The base is home to the United States’ elite Special Forces (seen headquarters), and Gabrielian claimed Henry might obtain intelligence about how the United States was training its forces to assist Ukraine. Gabrielian stated that her loyalty to Russia fueled her.

Gabrielian, a professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at Hopkins, allegedly informed an undercover agent on August 17 that she was motivated by patriotism toward Russia to provide all assistance she could to Russia, even if it meant being fired or going to jail.

Gabrielian’s Johns Hopkins biography reveals that she speaks Russian and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2012.

She allegedly told the agent that Henry not only had access to medical information at the military facility, but also had knowledge of how the U.S. military was being trained to assist Ukraine.

During this discussion, Henry allegedly disclosed to the agent that she had attempted to join the Russian military to fight against Ukraine.

“Henry said to the [undercover agent] that they were committed to aiding Russia, and he had looked into volunteering to join the Russian Army after the conflict in Ukraine began, but Russia needed persons with “fighting experience,” and he lacked such expertise,” according to the indictment.The base is home to the US elite Special Forces (headquarters pictured), with Gabrielian claiming Henry could get information about how the US was training its military to provide assistance to Ukraine.

Henry allegedly stated, “The way I see the current situation in Ukraine, the United States is using Ukrainians as proxies for its hate of Russia,” according to the indictment.

Gabrielian met an agent on August 31 in a hotel in Gaithersburg, Maryland, where he provided medical documents of a spouse from the Office of Naval Intelligence and a relative from an Air Force veteran.

The indictment adds, “Gabrielian highlighted to the [undercover agent] a medical condition in the records of [the military member’s spouse] that Russia may exploit.”

According to the indictment, Henry provided medical information on five Fort Bragg patients on August 31, including that of a former Army officer, a Department of Defense employee, and the spouses of current and deceased veterans.

The couple allegedly discussed contingency plans with the agent should their enterprise be revealed.

The indictment states, “Gabrielian recommended a cover story for their interactions and a plan for Gabrielian and Henry’s children to depart the United States if they were instructed to act in a way that could disclose their communications and acts to the U.S. government.”

Ultimately, the two were charged with conspiracy and improper disclosure of personally identifiable health information.

A representative for Johns Hopkins said in a statement, ‘We were horrified to discover this news this morning and intend to assist fully with investigations.’

Army and Justice Department representatives did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
