FORT BRAGG, NC – The first-ever transgender officer in the U.S. Army, along with his wife, have been arrested and officially charged for allegedly spying for the Russian government by attempting to transfer  confidential military medical information to an undercover FBI agent posing as an official from the country.

Henry, who is also a doctor, worked as a staff internist while stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, home to both the headquarters of the United States Army Special Operations Command and the Womack Army Medical Center. Gabrielian, a doctor as well, worked as an anesthesiologist Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland.

Henry became the Army’s first-ever transgender officer when he was granted permission to change his name in accordance with his gender preference in 2015; however, he still goes by male pronouns.

Henry and Gabrielian were indicted on eight charges on Thursday relating to accusations of stealing patient health files from Johns Hopkins and Fort Bragg and giving them to an individual they believed to be working for the Russian government; however, that individual was, in reality, an undercover FBI agent.

According to the FBI, Henry and Gabrielian were readily willing to steal the classified information in order to prove their allegiance to Russia; during a secret meeting with the undercover agent on August 17, Gabrielian reportedly said that she was so devoted to “Russia’s cause” that she didn’t care if she lost her job or went to prison. It was at that meeting that Gabrielian set up a second meeting with the agent, this time with Henry attending as well.

In the second meeting – with the husband and wife still believing that they were meeting with a Kremlin representative – Henry stated that he was “committed” to supporting Russia, and had even considered joining the Russian military after they had invaded Ukraine but was turned down due to his lack of combat experience.

“The way I am viewing what is going on in Ukraine now, is that the United States is using Ukrainians as a proxy for their own hatred toward Russia,” Henry allegedly said to the agent.

It was at this meeting that Henry and Gabrielian then allegedly volunteered to steal the confidential medial information from the United States Army and Johns Hopkins in order to assist the Russian government.

If the two are convicted of the charges against both of them – one count of conspiracy and seven counts of publishing secret military medical records – they face potential maximum prison terms of 75 years each.
