Biden Admin Indicts Whistleblower Who Exposed Child Sex-Change Surgeries

The doctor targeted by the Biden administration for blowing the whistle on transgender surgeries that were secretly being performed by Texas Children’s Hospital was formally indicted with federal charges this week.

Eithan Haim, who revealed himself as the whistleblower earlier this year in an interview with The Daily Wire, says three armed agents arrived at his door early Tuesday to inform him that he’s been charged with four felonies. The charges are related to alleged HIPAA violations from when Haim, as a resident of Texas Children’s Hospital, was performing so-called “gender-affirming” procedures on minors even as it publicly declared that all such activity had been halted.

Haim says there is still uncertainty about what exactly he’s being charged with — he’s been ordered to appear in court next Monday where his legal team expects to learn the extent of the charges. He has long maintained that he committed no crimes, and is being politically targeted.

“I refuse to back down or to be silenced,” Haim, a practicing surgeon in Texas, posted on social media Thursday night. “But to win, we enter the arena. For us that’s federal court.”

In January, Haim told The Daily Wire that he had no regrets about coming forward to expose the transgender surgeries, saying it was his “responsibility as a doctor.”

“It’s my responsibility as a doctor, as a physician, to expose this to the public,” Haim said. “If I don’t, then this abuse can continue. I knew that future generations, like my children, would never be able to forgive me if they knew I had the chance to do something and I decided to stay silent.”
