A federal grand jury indicted Anna Gabrielian, 36-years-old, and her husband, Jamie Lee Henry, 39-years-old, from Rockville, Maryland, with conspiracy and for the disclosure of identifiable health information, related to their efforts to assist Russia in connection with the conflict in Ukraine.

MAGA Conservatives reported:
During the time of the alleged conspiracy, Henry worked as a staff internist stationed at Fort Bragg, the home of the Army’s XVIII Airborne Corps, headquarters of the United States Army Special Operations Command, and the Womack Army Medical Center.
According to the eight-count indictment, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to cause harm to the United States by providing confidential health information of Americans associated with the United States government and military to Russia.
Specifically, the indictment alleges that beginning on August 17, 2022, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to provide IIHI related to patients at Medical Institution 1 and at Fort Bragg to an individual they believed to be working for the Russian government to demonstrate the level of Gabrielian’s and Henry’s access to IIHI of Americans; their willingness to provide IIHI to the Russian government; and the potential for the Russian government to gain insights into the medical conditions of individuals associated with the United States government and military in order to exploit this information.
Gabrielian and Henry met with an individual they beelined to be associated with the Russian government, but who was in fact an FBI undercover agent.
Gabrielian told the undercover agent that she had previously reached out to the Russian embassy by email and phone, offering her and her husband’s assistance.
It was also reported:
Henry and Gabrielian allegedly offered to provide the UC with private medical records from the United States Army and Medical Institution 1 to help the Russian government. During the same meeting, Gabrielian demanded that if she were put at significant risk of arrest, she wanted her and Henry’s children to, “have a nice flight to Turkey to go on vacation because I don’t want to end in jail here with my kids being hostages over my head.”
