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 an employee of the DOE.” The DOE also told Fox: “This was not a Biden official.”
It was not immediately clear if 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 reached out to the DOE for further comment.

In light of the revelations, Brinton received a license from the DOE.
