Samuel Brinton, the non-binary Biden administration official accused of multiple baggage thefts at two separate airports, is reportedly no longer with the Department of Energy.
A DOE spokesperson told Fox News Digital on Monday that Brinton “is no longer a DOE employee.” The DOE also told Fox, “He was not a Biden official.”
It was not immediately clear whether Brinton had resigned or been fired.
“By law, the Department of Energy cannot comment further on personnel matters,” the DOE spokesperson said.
Fox News Digital has contacted the DOE for further comment.
