‘Non-binary’ Biden official reportedly used stolen luggage for a month after dumping owner’s clothes

New damning details have emerged about the disgraced “non-binary” Biden administration official who stole a woman’s suitcase from the baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport two months ago.

One, after reportedly stealing the luggage, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition Sam Brinton, a biological male, went on to happily attend an LGBT student activism conference as if nothing unusual had just occurred.

“Brinton was in the Twin Cities to attend the Out for Undergrad Engineering Conference. The conference was held at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel, the same hotel where Brinton was staying,” according to the Daily Mail.

Indeed, Brinton was photographed at the event “wearing a black evening gown with two of the event’s coordinators,” the Daily Mail notes.


Two, despite claiming he’d taken the suitcase by accident, the Biden administration official kept using it for nearly a full month straight.

He was “captured on surveillance using the same suitcase on at least two trips to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9,” according to the New York Post.

These revelations contradict Brinton’s story that he’d just made a simple mistake.

According to an official criminal complaint, Brinton flew into the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport from Washington, D.C., on Sept. 16th. He then proceeded to the baggage carousel, where he reportedly swiped a luxury Vera Bradley suitcase worth an estimated $2,325, removed the identification tags, and then left.

“DEFENDANT removed the blue bag’s tag and put the bag tag in the handbag they were carrying. DEFENDANT then left the area at a quick pace,” the complaint reads.

After the owner of the suitcase complained about her missing luggage, the authorities tracked the suitcase to Brinton, who initially denied he’d take someone else’s luggage but quickly changed his story a few hours later.

“When Brinton … was confronted by police nearly a month later, they initially denied stealing the bag — insisting their clothes were inside the suitcase at the time,” according to the Post.

But Brinton “quickly backtracked and claimed they had taken the piece of luggage by mistake,” the Post notes.

He also claimed that he’d realized he’d taken the wrong piece of luggage while at the hotel and decided to empty it out of its clothes lest others think he’d stolen it.

“DEFENDANT said when they opened the bag at the hotel, they realized it was not theirs. DEFENDANT got nervous people would think they stole the bag and did not know what to do. DEFENDANT stated they left the clothes from the bag inside the drawers in the hotel room,” the criminal complaint reads.

Brinton then just acted as if the suitcase — now empty of the original owner’s clothes — was his, which critics say is a surefire sign of his guilt. After all, why didn’t he just call the police to report his alleged error or bring the luggage back to the airport?

Brinton has since been placed on leave. It’s not clear why he hasn’t yet been outright fired and condemned by the administration. Though from the sounds of it, his termination is impending.

“On Nov. 18, Kim Petry, the acting deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel who has stood in for Brinton, wrote in an email to DOE colleagues that she had been asked to stay on as head of the spent fuel office ‘for the foreseeable future‘ by Kathryn Huff, assistant secretary for nuclear energy,” according to Exchange Monitor.

The American press is, for its part, completely ignoring the story. As of Wednesday, days after the story first broke, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc., hadn’t run a single story about Brink’s bad behavior.

As noted earlier, he identifies as so-called “non-binary,” meaning he’s a member of the LGBT community. The reason the media is ignoring his crime is likely because they’re trying to protect either the Biden administration or the LGBT community.

Meanwhile, Brinton has been charged with felony theft and now faces up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
