It’s not just Joe Biden’s family that’s crooked. He’s got an entire cabinet full of heinous crooks. And one of them just got busted.
We’re not that surprised anymore by this headline, are we? After all the breakthroughs with Elon Musk’s brave announcements, we’re sure to see in influx an congressional hearings, and hopefully, arrest warrants.
Sam Brinton, an official with the Department of Energy, was accused of stealing a woman’s luggage at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport last month, The New York Post reported.
“Brinton, who made history as one of the federal government’s first gender-fluid officials, allegedly stole luggage from another traveler at Harry Reid International Airport in Vegas on an unknown date, according to the outlet,” The Post said. “Details about the alleged theft are scarce, but Brinton, 35, was charged with grand larceny with a value between $1,200 and $5,000.”
Georgia Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde and 15 other top Republicans sent a letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding Brinton resign.
Because that’s how it works with liberals. They need instructions on how to operate with a moral compass. Good luck getting them to follow those instructions, though.
“We write to respectfully demand the resignation of the Department of Energy’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition, Sam Brinton, who was recently put on leave following felony theft charges,” the letter said.
“Despite not checking a bag before flying out of Washington, D.C., surveillance footage reveals Brinton taking and leaving with luggage from the baggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on September 16th.
“After initially lying to the police, Brinton later admitted to taking a suitcase valued at $2,325 and hiding the owner’s belongings in a hotel room.
Alarmingly, Brinton has been observed using the stolen suitcase on multiple trips to Washington, D.C.
Brinton was ultimately charged with felony theft, which carries a penalty of up to five years imprisonment, a $10,000 fine, or both,” it said.
“As you are aware, your Department issued notice that Sam Brinton was placed on leave without providing crucial context clarifying that Brinton’s recent employment status was the result of a felony charge.
As an appointed official, Sam Brinton represents both your Department and the United States. It is simply not possible for an individual to represent American values and simultaneously violate the felony laws of the land.
Brinton’s actions, along with your Department’s lack of transparency when dealing with this matter, reflect poorly on the Department of Energy, and they raise concern as to the Biden Administration’s priorities when appointing high-ranking officials.
“It is imperative that we do not allow a person charged with a felony to influence America’s policies,” the lawmakers said.
“Therefore, we demand the resignation of Sam Brinton, and we implore you to set aside petty politics and appoint only the most qualified and dedicated individuals to influence America’s energy sector,” they said as they asked for a response by December 30.
Petty politics! But the liberals don’t know how to operate any other way.
