While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris ignored a question regarding New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s alleged sexual harassment scandal.

Harris spoke to reporters after the $1.9 trillion Covid relief plan was passed by the House of Representatives. At the end of the press conference, a reporter asked Harris to comment on the Gov. Cuomo scandal.

“Madame Vice President, do you have any comment on Gov. Cuomo?” the reporter asked. However, Harris walked out of the briefing room without addressing the question.

Harris has remained silent about claims against the Democratic Governor, despite loudly condemning Republican men accused of sexual misconduct.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki released a statement last week regarding Harris’s silence.

“I think the vice president’s view is she believes a woman should be treated with respect. Their voices should be heard,” Psaki said.

On Wednesday, a sixth woman came forward accusing Cuomo of inappropriate behavior. Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing and declared he will not resign from his position.

“As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this,” Cuomo said in a statement Wednesday. “The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the Attorney General’s report.”

Army’s First Trans Officer Indicted for Spying for Russia

The U.S. Army’s first transgender officer and his wife, a Maryland doctor, are making headlines. No, not for breaking any ideological woke barriers; for “allegedly attempting to transfer confidential military medical information to Russia.”

The two were charged in an eight-count indictment on conspiracy charges Wednesday. Major Jamie Lee Henry, who lived with his anesthesiologist wife Anna Gabrielian, was granted his request to officially change his name in accordance with his gender preference in 2015.

Henry and Gabrielian allegedly volunteered to “retrieve private medical records from the United States Army and Johns Hopkins in order to assist the Russian government.”

National Review reports:

The pair are accused of stealing patient health files from Johns Hopkins and Fort Bragg and giving them to an individual they believed to be working for the Russian government. They aimed to show that they could access classified information and readily provide it to Moscow to demonstrate their allegiance, according to the indictment.

However, the individual to whom they hoped to deliver the information was an undercover FBI agent. At a covert August 17 meeting, Gabrielian told the agent that she was devoted to helping Russia’s cause even if it cost her her job or landed her in prison. She arranged a subsequent meeting with Henry and the agent, still believing him to be affiliated with the Kremlin.

That evening, in the agent’s hotel room, Henry expressed that he was committed to supporting Russia and had considered enlisting in the Russian army after the invasion of Ukraine. However, he told the agent he was disqualified because he didn’t have any “combat experience.”

“The way I am viewing what is going on in Ukraine now, is that the United States is using Ukrainians as a proxy for their own hatred toward Russia,” Henry reportedly told the agent.

“Prior to Henry’s case, identifying as a sex different than the one on one’s birth certificate made a soldier unfit for military service, warranting discharge” writes National Review.

Gabrielian worked at the Johns Hopkins school of medicine, and Henry worked as a staff internist stationed at Fort Bragg.

If convicted, the two could face up to five years in federal prison for the conspiracy charge, and a maximum of ten years in federal prison for each count of publishing secret military medical records.
