Joe Biden and his lackeys have made one of the most corrupt cabinets in US history. Now they’re starting to crumble.
And The White House was just rocked by this high profile arrest.
The Biden administration has made some pretty boneheaded mistakes over the past two and a half years.
But one of their biggest has been tacking on diversity hires without properly vetting their past and qualifications.
Now one of them is going to jail yet again.
Sam Brinton, an embattled former top Department of Energy (DOE) employee, was apprehended late Wednesday as a “fugitive from justice” by Maryland police.
Brinton was arrested in Rockville, according to county documents examined by Fox News Digital. The arrest was related to the theft of airport luggage, according to a representative for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Police, which is the principal law enforcement organization for both Washington, D.C., area airports. This is Brinton’s third such criminal case.
“Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police executed a search warrant May 17 in Montgomery County, Maryland, in connection with allegations of stolen property in luggage from Reagan National Airport that was brought to the department’s attention in February 2023,” James Johnson, a spokesperson for the MWAA, told Fox News Digital in an email.
“With the assistance of Montgomery County Police, Samuel Otis Brinton, age 35, of Rockville, Maryland, was taken into custody Wednesday pending charges of Grand Larceny,” Johnson said.
A witness who claimed to be Brinton’s neighbor told The Daily Wire, which initially reported the arrest, that Brinton was arrested roughly an hour after four unmarked police cars arrived.
“Montgomery County Police assisted in the arrest of Sam Brinton,” Shiera Goff, a spokesman for the Montgomery County Police Department, told Fox News Digital. “The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police are lead on this.”
“Brinton was arrested at approximately 10 p.m. last night in their home on College Parkway,” Goff added.
“They are being held in the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit on a no-bond status as they await an extradition hearing. That’s all of the information we have on our end.”
Brinton was arrested a month after escaping jail in two separate cases involving luggage thefts in Minnesota and Nevada. Brinton made headlines last year after being appointed to the position that oversees nuclear waste policy at the DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy as a non-binary gender-fluid person.
Brinton was charged in October with taking $2,325 in luggage from the luggage carousel at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after flying in from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 16.
In early December, prosecutors in Las Vegas accused Brinton with grand larceny of an item worth between $1,200 and $5,000.
Brinton was charged by police of stealing a luggage worth $3,670 on July 6 at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport. The luggage contained jewels worth $1,700, clothing worth $850, and makeup worth $500.
Brinton may face up to 15 years in prison for the two alleged offenses. However, in both cases, the presiding judges concluded that no jail sentence was required.
Furthermore, Brinton was accused in February by a female Tanzanian fashion designer located in Houston of wearing her own creations that were packed in a baggage she reported lost in 2018. The case was reported to the FBI by Houston police.
Brinton left the DOE on December 12, but the DOE would not comment on the cause for his departure.
