‘They’re Siccing Their DOJ On People’: Shapiro Interviews Whistleblower Targeted By DOJ For Exposing Child Trans Surgeries
DailyWire+. The Ben Shapiro Show.

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro interviewed Dr. Eithan Haim, the whistleblower for the bombshell story about secretive transgender surgeries for minors at the Texas Children’s Hospital, who was hit with targeted harassment by the Biden administration’s Department of Justice.

As The Daily Wire reported, Haim said for him the story all started in September 2022, when he saw The Daily Wire’s investigation of Vanderbilt University’s transgender clinic, where so-called “gender-affirming” care for minors was described as a “big money maker” and irreversible treatments such as double mastectomies were being performed on children.”

He then learned that the hospital where he was a resident, Texas Children’s Hospital, was engaging in similar scandalous behavior.

“I reached this unavoidable conclusion that Texas Children’s Hospital is providing this outward appearance that they shut down the program, when in actuality, within the hospital, it’s a very high priority,” Haim told The Daily Wire. “I start realizing how blatant this is, how unethical it is, and how they’re lying to the public.”

“So why don’t we start from the beginning?” Shapiro prompted. “How did you find out what was going on at Texas Children’s? And then what exactly did you report? Because they’re claiming that you’re violating HIPPA or something.”

“They started because I was a surgical resident working at Texas Children’s Hospital, and I had heard that they were doing these procedures,” Haim answered. “But in March of 2022, they had released a statement unequivocally stating they were shutting down their program because of the legal risk. And, you know, at first I thought this was a huge relief. But I quickly found out this was completely untrue. And the reason I knew that is because I worked there. I did surgery there. The people who are doing their procedures had told me about it and the fact that they were putting on this front to the public, saying that they were no longer doing it while ramping up the program behind closed doors, doing these procedures more frequently, increasing the scope of the clinic and giving the directors of the program the opportunity to speak at the hospital’s most prestigious lecture series, something called Carry Around.”

“I saw that it was a priority for the hospital, why they were deceiving the public about whether it even existed and the fact that this was happening at the largest children’s hospital; I knew that it was an individual responsibility to do something about it, also a professional responsibility as a surgeon to make this known,” he recalled.

“You know that the attempt to investigate (me) is really the attempt to silence whistleblowers, because we know this is happening in other hospitals across the country,” Haim continued. “And if they can do this to me, they’re going to do it to other people who are in the same situation because people know this is happening and they just want to keep people silent. So that’s why we decided to come out publicly.”

“What we have learned over the past couple of months and the conclusions that I was able to make is that this investigation is being pursued for political reasons,” Haim asserted. “If I’m placed in this situation, the best possible thing I can do is tell the truth, because if that’s out there, you can allow people to know what truly happened and to see the true side of the story and how these federal agencies and certain segments of the justice system is being weaponized in order to go after whistleblowers like me.”

“This is obviously a part of the larger puzzle in which the DOJ appears under the Biden administration to be moving to silence people reporting about this sort of stuff,” Shapiro commented. “Because in the past, when people, for example, at Daily Wire have reported on what was going on at Vanderbilt, for example, this turned into a broad media and governmental campaign to target journalists who were covering this sort of stuff. … They’re siccing their DOJ on people who are reporting information that they don’t want out in the public view.”

“In order to prevent scrutiny of these programs, they are passing these regulations, passing these laws, and these federal bureaucracies, that will prevent that accountability from taking place,” Haim said. “Because if there’s one principle in medicine, in surgery, is that anything you’re doing in the hospital to a patient you should have no problem talking about and defending in public. If you’re doing something and you want to keep it from the public it’s very, very likely you’re doing something wrong.”

“This demonstrates what the White House and the DOJ are willing to do in order to silence people who are reporting the truth on this sort of stuff,” Shapiro concluded.
