There are plenty of skeletons in the Biden admin’s closet. But this is beyond the pale.
Because police raided this Biden official’s home and what they found will utterly shock you.
Police returned items to a Tanzanian fashion designer they found while searching the house of disgraced ex-Department of Energy (DOE) official Sam Brinton.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Police Department confirmed that the items were returned to Asya Khamsin, who has claimed Brinton publicly wore apparel she made but was in her bag that she reported lost at Ronald Reagan National Airport years ago.
In May, MWAA officers executed a search warrant at Brinton’s Maryland home in connection with the case.
“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 told Fox News Digital in a statement Tuesday.
“The case is still under adjudication and we cannot release more detailed information.”
Brinton was charged with felony grand larceny of things valued more than $1,000 weeks after the search warrant was executed. The preliminary hearing in the case, filed in Arlington General District Court, has been scheduled for December.
Khamsin said in an interview in February, around the same time that MWAA Police heard of Brinton’s alleged theft at Ronald Reagan National Airport, that she saw images in news articles of Brinton wearing clothes with her unique designs. Khamsin went on to say that she packed the identical clothes in a bag that went missing at the airport on March 9, 2018.
“I saw the images. Those were my custom designs, which were lost in that bag in 2018,” Khamsin said at the time. “He wore my clothes, which was stolen.”
Khamsin went on to say that she had travelled to Washington, D.C., to attend an event where she was invited to display her apparel. Her participation was hampered by the disappearance of her suitcase. Following the event, she filed reports with the MWAA and Delta Air Lines, but the issue was closed.
Khamsin then filed a report with police in Houston, where she and her husband live, after viewing the images of Brinton and news that Brinton had reportedly taken other goods from airport baggage carousels.
The Houston Police Department later stated that the matter had been submitted to the FBI.
“The MWAA returned to Asyakhamsin various parcels of retrieved clothing after the search warrant was executed. These items were returned in sealed evidence bags,” Peter Hansen, a Washington, D.C.-based attorney representing Khamsin, told Fox News Digital in an email Tuesday.
On Friday, Khamsin also launched a civil claim against Brinton in connection with the theft.
Meanwhile, Brinton, who made news last year after being appointed as a non-binary gender-fluid person to the DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy, dodged jail time in two separate cases involving suitcase thefts in Minnesota and Nevada.
Brinton was charged in October with taking $2,325 in luggage from the luggage carousel at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after flying in from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 16.
In early December, prosecutors in Las Vegas accused Brinton with grand larceny of an item worth between $1,200 and $5,000. Brinton was charged by police of stealing luggage worth $3,670 on July 6 at Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport. The luggage contained jewels worth $1,700, clothing worth $850, and makeup worth $500.
Brinton was visiting the Nevada National Security Site in Las Vegas on an official taxpayer-funded trip at the time of the alleged theft.
Brinton may face up to 15 years in prison for the two alleged offenses. However, in both cases, the presiding judges concluded that no jail sentence was required.
