Huh. Funny how they don't say when he took the secret documents He shouldn't have had, but let's see if anyone else who took secret documents they shouldn't have had gets decades of hard time in the General population of a federal penitentiary.

Well.. We're waiting,...

I'm guessing the wife must be a mail-order bride or something. It reads like she was the driving force behind it.

She's also an anesthesiologist, and they make crazy money. I can't believe they threw it all away for this.

Henry claimed to have "looked into volunteering to join the Russian Army after the conflict in Ukraine began," but didn't have the necessary combat experience, according to the indictment.

Send them to the front lines in Russian gear and a water pistol.

There used to be an awesome pirogi shop near Fells Point, closed years ago. Maybe they thought this was their ticket to a new supply.

I'd assume combat experience would disqualify you from joining the Russian Army.

We can tell the rich people they're the ones in charge of the whole operation and let them pretend they're giving orders to the shadow warriors that will rise up and retake the country and so on. Give them a code to use, send them mysterious postcards, the works.

Let the FBI kick back and watch the whole thing and see who tries to contact the fake Russians.

Def seems like the wife is the one calling the shots, but unless she was born there it is completely incomprehensible.

Not unheard of for Russia or other countries to rat out a "walk-in" - someone that walks in off the street offering to spy or sell information- to the person's nation.  The KGB did this several times when they didn't trust the person's story or they decided it wasn't worth the potential trouble.

And in this case, Henry was someone the FSB would likely despise if other versions of this story are correct as:

"In holding an interview with BuzzFeed News, Henry is the first known active-duty Army officer to come out as transgender. She also is, to her knowledge and to the knowledge of LGBT advocates, the first and only active-duty service member who has changed her name and gender within the United States military."

Why would anyone in the LGBTQ movement cozy up to the Russians?!?

And not only offering to give over medical info on soldiers but their families crosses some of the so-called "rules" for some intelligence organs and they just be afraid it was a setup.

I don't give a sh*t why they did it.

Revoke their medical licenses, strip them of their military rank and accrued pension.  Strip them of their citizenship and put them in a rowboat with a week's rations.  Tow them outside the 12 mile limit and let them figure out the rest on their own.

F*ck these clowns.

When I was in, physicians received an additional amount above what a non-physican of the same rank would make.

No idea if they still do that. One of the ones I knew went to USMA, then they paid his way through John Hopkins Medical school.  I think he said he owed 5 years for undergrad 3 years for medical school, and 5 years for his residency. So, he was locked in for 13 years before he could resign his commission without having to pay back a shiat ton of cash

He was a great doc, a great officer, and avoided the arrogance that many physicians develop, especially one with that pedigree.

Is that well documented?  I would have figured an intelligence agency would never rat out a walk-in, no matter how preposterous they were, just cause it might scare off other potential walk-ins in the future.

Someone in farking Hollywood is reading that article and snapping up the rights right now. They won't even have to confirm anything truthful, you can make a solid movie for less than $20 million with just what's there, call it a day, and release it on streaming. Say "inspirited by real events."

I don't think people were ratted out officially, but getting turned away was pretty common.

I'm sure it's happened that an agency has given up a mole working for them but I can't find any public examples of it. I doubt something like that would ever leak. We only know about Robert Hanssen because we caught him, not because the Russians told us about him.
