A former nuclear waste official in the Biden administration, who claims to be “nonbinary,” was released without bail in his luggage theft case on Wednesday.
Brinton previously served as deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy, but was let go on December 12 after it was revealed that he had stolen women’s luggage at the airport on two separate occasions, and lied to the police about the theft.
The Biden administration hired Brinton as the federal government’s first so-called “nonbinary” official in February, despite his openly degenerate actions that critics claim made him unfit to hold office.

In September, Brinton was caught on security footage taking women’s luggage off of the bag carousel at a Minneapolis airport, despite the fact that he had not checked a bag on his flight.
“After DEFENDANT took the blue bag from Carousel 7, DEFENDANT is observed leaving the airport in a Rideshare vehicle with the blue bag,” the complaint against him read. “Records from American Airlines confirmed that DEFENDANT did not check a bag when DEFENDANT departed Washington D.C. to MSP Airport.”
Brinton was seen on security footage taking the luggage and removing its ID tag that would have identified its owner, and was later seen using the stolen Vera Bradley suitcase on multiple occasions.
The victim stated that the items in the bag were worth over $2,300, according to court documents. The suitcase itself was reportedly worth $2,325.
Brinton was later accused of a second luggage theft, this time at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.
“A felony warrant was issued for Sam Brinton, a deputy assistant secretary, sources said. The charge is for grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000, records showed,” 8NewsNow reported.
Despite the fact that his crimes clearly show a pattern of intent, Brinton was released from jail without bail by a Minnesota court.
The judge, who played into Brinton’s delusions by referring to him as “Mx. Brinton,” also ordered the former nuclear waste official not to contact any of his victims.
Brinton was originally slated to appear in court on December 19, but his lawyers were able to push back his court date until this Wednesday. He requested that the judge allow him to appear for his hearing virtually, but the request was denied.
The “nonbinary” former official is facing up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
