DOE Nuke Disposal chief in trouble

| November 30, 2022


Sam Brinton, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy in the Department of Energy (that’s a mouthful, a concept with which he is no doubt familiar) is being accused of stealing an extremely expensive piece of luggage. A woman reported her $2300+ Vera Bradley roller bag missing when she landed at Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) and subsequent searches of the airport video showed Brinton allegedly (have to say that) wheeling her wheely-bag out of baggage claim.

Airport records confirmed the navy blue Vera Bradley roller bag arrived at 4:40 p.m. but was missing from the carousel. According to the criminal complaint, law enforcement reviewed video surveillance footage from the baggage claim and observed Brinton removing a navy blue roller bag from carousel seven.

The complaint says Brinton removed a luggage tag from the bag, placed it into a handbag he was carrying, and “then left the area at a quick pace.” Brinton arrived at MSP Airport around 4:27 p.m. on an American Airlines flight from Washington, D.C., but did not check a bag, meaning he had no reason to visit baggage claim, according to the complaint.

Police showed the surveillance video to the victim and she confirmed it was her bag.

Brinton left the airport in an Uber for a stay at the InterContinental St. Paul Riverfront hotel, where he checked in with the blue bag, the complaint says.

He returned to MSP on Sept. 18 with the bag in hand for a departing flight back to Washington, D.C., authorities allege.

Surveillance video from Dulles International Airport shows Brinton traveling with the bag on an Oct. 9 return trip from Europe, the complaint notes.

Police questioned Brinton about the missing bag in an Oct. 9 phone call and asked him directly if he “took anything that did not belong” to him.

“Not that I know of,” Brinton allegedly responded. He later admitted to taking the bag but said the clothes inside were his, according to the complaint.

Brinton allegedly called the investigating officer two hours later and apologized for not being “completely honest.” This time Brinton said he took the bag because he was tired and thought it was his, the complaint says.

Brinton said he brought the bag back to D.C. with him because it would have been “weirder” to leave a bag in the hotel room, according to police.

Police told Brinton how to return the bag to Delta, but as of Oct. 27 the victim still had not received her bag back.

Police also learned that no clothing was recovered from the hotel room.

Bring the popcorn and the kiddies, folks…you’re about to see how the law doesn’t apply on many levels: He/sheit is TG, in Minneapolis, and a Biden administration mucky-muck (although that some articles say DOE says he is on leave – paid, no doubt) so it is gar-on-tee he isn’t going to see the inside of a courtroom. You or I…. might bail out but the ride and processing would be assured.

You have to wonder if he/sheit was eligible for Secret Service protection, what the agents’ callsign for him would be be.

Ladies and their bags. Never understood the $800 purse or $2400 suitcase. Just know they are a hot thing to steal the last few years.

When you look like that though people are know are. It’s like Chris Hemsworth at an airport. Kind of hard not to notice.

Stood out like a sore thumb with lipstick on it on the surveillance camera.


The mustache needs some work.
If he can get it to extend beyond the upper lip that would
look awesome.

Pretty sure this is how he got that mustache:


Wilford Brimley, not the “molestache,” perhaps…

And just to play Captain Obvious here, only 2 options:
A- He thought it was his bag, in which case he is crazy and shouldn’t be around nuke stuff…


B- He is a liar and a thief and shouldn’t be around nuke stuff.

I guess he is shooting for A but B is of course much more likely.


The problem with “A” is he didn’t check a bag. So he had no reason to go to the baggage carousel, except to steal a bag.

Hack Stone

He identifies as someone who checked luggage.

He also wore an elegant black evening gown to some gala event that very evening. Where did that come from?

Herbert J Messkit

Gen Miley reports he looked lovely.


Hence the crazy.

That’s is it in a nutshell.

My best guess is that this person probably has a decent skill set for the position but got it (the position) over other qualified applicants based upon “his” diversity and the potential for the current administration to “achieve” another “historic first”.

Furthermore, this behavior is not a one time thing. I would posit that it popped up on a background check and they “overlooked” it or considered it very minor based upon their need a the time to score another “historic first” in Biden’s appointing, shall we say, “diverse” folks to key positions in his administration.


Skillsets are not a factor in the Brandon administration. Checking the right diversity blocks is priority. If Sammy here was a Hispanic muslim with a black father and an Asian surname, married to his sister, he’d be appointed President for life.


Skillsets are not a factor in the Brandon administration.

Hence Pete the Buttplug holding a position (see what I did there…)


Everyone’s favorite distractor C- “All of the above.”


Deploy the dog catcher!

Just looking at his photo, you just know that he comes with a lot of baggage.


I see what you did there.

He just HAD TO bag on it and the situation,…


Think the security clearance is in danger?


Nah…it’s in the bag


Corny, but…

He would make great company with Thor and Bubba in the slam. Just wear that same dress and lipstick.

A$2300 bag? Sounds like Felony Theft to me, but since he/it is part of the current administration and in a protected class,…


It is felony theft, according to the criminal complaint now pending in Minnesota state court.


They’ll love him in jail…

Green Thumb

This happened a while back.

The powers that be must have sat on this.

Anyone else, they would be under the jailhouse.

Petty fucking theft. Wow. What a loser.

Somewhere Phil Monkress weeps….

Authorities also have video of him steal an armoire.

USMC Steve

So the dude is not only a sexual deviant, but a thief too. Not too surprising given his proclivities and his political affiliation.


Okay when Democrats do it again…


“…so it is gar-on-tee he isn’t going to see the inside of a courtroom.”

Yeah. Sweetheart deal en route.

Hey TPTB, we still out number you (for now) and it’d be prudent to remember how animated a society in search of liberté can get. I’m going to keep beating this drum of warning to The Powers That Be: two-tiered justice ain’t…


I think he stole the other thread, too!

I really want to know why he went on leave in the first place.


He just needed some quiet time to reflect on his misdeeds. I’m waiting for Miguel Almaguer to break the story.


Duplicate post has been disappeared, apologies.

Russian disinformation?


Glad you cleared that up for us Big Dog. Too bad the comments on that thread went poof too. Suit me to put this case on ice, man. Thought it was deja vu all over again.

I repeat…doubt if this case will ever see the inside of a court room.. Good thing is this useful idiot will be handled like nuclear waste…and buried…or become a VP nominee.


He’s head and head with Gretch the Wretch Whitmer.


All is normal. Nothing to see here. Move along.


We’ve become an embarrassment!! Sadly this is just another example. The USA was the greatest country in the history of the world and now it’s becoming a joke and most people don’t even give a fuck.


Yeah. I pretty much agree. Still think we are the greatest thing going on this ball of dirt, but the idiots who are voting these days and putting admins like this in office make me wonder what sort of country my grandkids are gonna be living in.


It’s far easier to cater to these folks, promise them the moon and give them everything they can want over the common suffering (guaranteed income for… what reason exactly?) and get an assload of easy votes by normalizing it all than it is to admit what they already know — that 100% of trans folks are mentally ill and need help. A combination of shameless politicians and dumb fuck young voters is to blame. The perfect storm of stupidity.

The second the large businesses chose to bow down and virtue signal for sales instead of telling the whiners to fuck off was when the first large domino began its fall on our side of this mess.


Pandering worked well for Nike. That and slave labor.


I agree but we are losing it fast. I can’t believe that people are willing to give up personal freedoms like speech, and be told what to do and how to do it. To many the constitution and sacrifices of past generations means nothing. Something has to change because there’s nowhere else to go.


Pardon the astute meme (via Jjones23 @ PDW)

Spent fuel rods – there’s a joke in there somewhere.

Will this negatively impact selling uranium to the Russkies?

Hack Stone

That should be “Hillary selling uranium…”


Freak should be boiled in oil.


Just bury him aloove with the nuke waste…


Alive.. damn fat fingers

Where is Connie Francis to sing…..Ok, the guy isn’t wearing a collar with lipstick on it. so belay that last request


Ya know…he’s gayer than cum on a mustache.


Good one. I’ll file that away for future use.

Hack Stone

Dat’s a good one.

Don’t hate him because they/them is beautiful.

If they/them is so hard up for luggage, why doesn’t they/them try to get on The Price Is Right?


I think You were right he identifies as somebody who checks Luggage.


I mean they/them/whatever 🤷

When I first saw this assclown I thought Matt Damon had agreed to some sort of drag movie…

When I found out this individual was a bureaucrat dealing with some important Federal business (nuclear waste disposal) I wondered how we have arrived at the point where a misguided, delusional man who thinks he might or might not be a woman depending on which day of the week it is could be walking free instead of being attended to at a mental health facility…then I remembered the Democrats solution to mental health facility abuse was to release the inmates and close the facility and slowly work there way around to trying to convince society that people with penises who believe they are women are perfectly sane and no one should argue the point…

I am starting to be grateful my time remaining here on the big blue marble is short.
