Police found several items of stolen clothing executing a search warrant of Democrat President Joe Biden’s “woke” former nuclear waste official Sam Brinton’s home.
The disgraced ex-Department of Energy (DOE) official was arrested and charged in multiple cases involving the theft of women’s luggage from airports.
Brinton first made headlines last year when he was appointed to the position that oversees nuclear waste policy at the Biden DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy.
He claims to be “non-binary” and “gender-fluid” and demands that people use awkward plural “they/them” pronouns to address him.
Police returned articles of clothing to a Tanzanian fashion designer they obtained while searching Brinton’s home.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Police Department confirmed the clothes were returned to Asya Khamsin.
As Slay News previously reported, Khamsin alleged that Brinton publicly wore clothing she designed.
Her unique items of custom-made clothing were in her bag she reported missing at Ronald Reagan National Airport several years ago.
Khamsin said she became aware that Brinton had her clothing after seeing photos of him wearing them to high-profile events.
In May, MWAA police officers executed a search warrant in connection with the case at Brinton’s Maryland residence.
“The MWAA Police Department can confirm we returned the victim’s property and police retained photos of the evidence for prosecution,” MWAA spokesperson Crystal Nosal said in a statement Tuesday.
“The case is still under adjudication and we cannot release more detailed information.”
Weeks after the search warrant was executed, Brinton was charged with felony grand larceny of items worth more than $1,000.
The preliminary hearing in the case, which was filed in Arlington General District Court, has been delayed until December.
In February, around the same time that MWAA Police learned about Brinton’s alleged theft at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Khamsin went public after she saw photographs in news articles where Brinton appeared to be wearing clothes with her custom designs.
Khamsin added she packed the same clothes in a bag that vanished at the airport on March 9, 2018.
“I saw the images,” Khamsin said in February.
“Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018.
“He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”
The fashion designer revealed that the theft of her luggage harmed her career.
Khamsin added that she had flown to Washington, D.C., to attend an event where she was invited to put her clothing on display.
However, the disappearance of her bag prevented her from participating.
She ultimately filed reports with the MWAA and Delta Air Lines following the incident, but the case went cold.
Then, after seeing the photographs of Brinton and reports that he had allegedly stolen other luggage from airport baggage carousels, Khamsin filed a report with police in Houston where she and her husband live.
The Houston Police Department later said it referred the case to the FBI.
“The MWAA returned to Asyakhamsin various parcels of retrieved clothing after the search warrant was executed,” Peter Hansen, Khamsin’s lawyer, said in a statement.
“These items were returned in sealed evidence bags.”
In addition, Khamsin has now filed a civil lawsuit against Brinton related to the theft.
Meanwhile, Brinton escaped jail time in two separate cases in Minnesota and Nevada involving luggage thefts.
In October, police charged Brinton with stealing a traveler’s baggage worth a total of $2,325 from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.
The theft occurred after he had flown in from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C., on September 16.
And in early December, Las Vegas prosecutors charged Brinton with grand larceny of an item valued between $1,200 and $5,000.
Police accused Brinton of stealing a suitcase with a total estimated worth of $3,670 on July 6 at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.
The bag contained jewelry valued at $1,700, clothing worth $850 and makeup valued at $500.
Brinton was on an official taxpayer-funded trip to the Nevada National Security Site in Las Vegas at the time of the alleged theft.
He faced up to 15 years total for the two alleged thefts.
However, in both cases, the presiding judges gave him a slap on the wrist and ruled jail time wasn’t necessary.
On December 12, the DOE announced that Brinton had left the agency, but wouldn’t comment on the reason for his departure.
