The Biden administration indicted the whistleblower who exposed how doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston secretly provided sex alteration surgeries and transgender hormones to minors.

Dr. Eithan Haim, now a general surgeon in the Dallas area, anonymously leaked documents last year to journalist Christopher Rufo that proved the children’s hospital lied when it promised to dissolve its transgender program.

Haim went public with his story in January when he announced the Department of Justice had launched an investigation into his actions. The agency indicted him on four felony counts related to his alleged violation of medical record laws.

Rufo, who broke the news of the indictment on Thursday in City Journal, claimed the documents provided by Haim redacted private information.

“I can confirm that nothing in the information provided to me identified any individual; all the documents were, in fact, carefully redacted,” Rufo wrote.

Haim’s legal team previously told The Dallas Express that the lead prosecutor of the investigation, Assistant U.S. Attorney Tina Ansari of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas, lied about the allegedly leaked personal information.

Neither the DOJ nor Ansari’s office responded to a request for comment.

Haim’s legal team was reportedly not given precise details from the DOJ about the felony charges.

“My client is anxious to get to trial to get his side of the story told,” Marcella Burke, Haim’s attorney, told National Review. “I am confident this will result in the correct decision being made.”

Haim said he was informed about the investigation when federal agents came to his house on the day of his medical residency graduation.

“At first, you’re completely shocked. You don’t know what to do. You kind of just freak out. It was an utter shock initially,” he told DX back in January.

The documents leaked by Haim revealed that Texas Children’s Hospital, the largest children’s hospital in the country, provided hormone inhibitors to children as young as 11 years old.

“The hospital was conducting something very questionable and illegal and lying to the public about it. Then I’m the one being investigated, with agents showing up to my apartment the day of my graduation, a few hours before the ceremony, with my parents there, which was, of course, likely planned, in my opinion,” Haim previously told DX.

Haim’s lawyers said Ansari admitted in a letter that she did not review evidence about the leaks before launching an investigation. The lawyers alleged Ansari’s letter threatened Haim’s wife when it mentioned her pending federal background check related to her becoming an assistant U.S. attorney in Texas. Ansari took issue with Haim’s wife advising him to decline an interview when federal agents came to his house.

“For [Ansari] to bring up my wife is the most vicious thing possible,” Haim previously told DX. “She brings my wife up as a threat to me. It’s despicable. She should be ashamed of herself.”

The Dallas Express reached out for comment to the entirety of the Texas Children’s Hospital leadership team.

The leadership team includes the following members:

Mark Wallace, CEO; Debra F. Sukin, president; Weldon Gage, executive vice president and chief financial officer; Dean Andropoulos, anesthesiologist-in-chief; Michael A. Belfort, obstetrician/gynecologist-in-chief; Larry Hollier Jr., surgeon-in-chief; Thierry Huisman, radiologist-in-chief; Lara Shekerdemian, pediatrician-in-chief; Jeffrey Shilt, community-in-chief; James Versalovic, pathologist-in-chief; Huda Zoghbi, research-in-chief; Linda Aldred, executive vice president and chief human resources officer; Myra Davis, executive vice president and chief information and innovation officer; Dan DiPrisco, executive vice president; Matt Girotto, executive vice president; Keith Nelson, executive vice president and chief investment office; Tabitha Rice, executive vice president; and Russ Williams, senior vice president.
