Navy Punishes Sailor Over Incident Concerning Joe Biden's Medical Records

Share

A sailor in the U.S. Navy has been punished for trying to access the medical records of President Joe Biden, according to new reports.

The unnamed junior enlisted sailor, assigned to the hospital corps at Virginia’s Fort Belvoir, made three search attempts for “Joseph Biden” on the military database on Feb. 23, but all three tries were unsuccessful, CBS News reported Tuesday.

“[H]e did not pull up the right Joe Biden,” a U.S. official told the news network.

A co-worker reported the security breach, which triggered an investigation that concluded in April.

According to a statement provided to Newsweek by Tim Hawkins, a U.S. Navy Commander, the sailor apparently was just being nosy.

“A Sailor assigned to NMRTC Fort Belvoir searched the name ‘Joseph Biden’ in MHS Genesis, the Military Health System’s electronic health record, out of curiosity,” the statement said, according to Newsweek.

“A co-worker reported the Sailor’s breach of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) opened an investigation, which concluded on April 24, 2024.

Did the Navy treat this sailor fairly?

“The record the Sailor accessed was not the electronic record of the President of the United States. The MHS Genesis system is a secure health system and at no time was the President’s personal information compromised.”

The service member “was administratively disciplined” over the incident but continues to serve in the Navy, CBS reported.

“The president was informed about the sailor’s attempts to access his medical records within hours of White House staff being notified about the attempted breach by the Defense Department,” a White House official informed CBS News.

Two days after the investigation began, on Feb. 28, Biden underwent a physical described as routine and unrelated to the incident or the subsequent investigation.

“The White House official said the physical was ‘previously planned and was not impacted by this incident,'” ABC News reported.

The revelation comes as lawmakers and members of the liberal media have begun calling Biden’s physical and mental fitness into question.

Those calls have increased since Biden’s June 27 presidential debate against presumed GOP nominee and former President Donald Trump. Even liberal media sources deemed the president’s performance disastrous.

A neurologist who was described as a lifelong Democrat told NBC News on Monday that Biden exhibits all the classic symptoms of having Parkinson’s disease.

Some of the most powerful news outlets in the country have called for Biden to drop out of the race, including The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
