(SNews) – Megyn Kelly and James O’Keefe blew the whistle on a major scandal in President Joe Biden’s administration that is sadly not getting enough attention from the media. Megyn said:
“Too few people are talking about what’s happening to the female prisoners who are literally forced to live their lives with sex offenders who have declared themselves female two minutes ago, who are now coming into the prisons and raping these women.
“I think people ignore this because they’re like, “Oh, they’re prisoners, they’re criminals, okay, whatever, it’s sad but move on. No, these women, I saw a lawyer arguing, and she convinced me that this is an Eighth Amendment violation of cruel and unusual punishment. You take a woman who committed a crime, and these aren’t always, you know, violent crimes that these women commit.
“Usually, they’re not, maybe it’s a drug crime, something like that. They have to go behind bars, and then you make them share a cell with a male sex offender who’s convinced the authorities, in places like Washington state, where you did your expose, that they’re actually female, and then they get raped, and no one seems to care.

“So tell us about, we’re going to play some clips, but tell us kind of what you’ve done here.”
“Well, this is a breaking story today. The Department of Justice official is saying that Merrick Garland, Attorney General, is rolling over on this transgender policy called Million Dollar Baby.
“So that means that men who are pretending to be women are going to female jails in order to, according to our sources, have sex with women.
“Men are, you know, they keep their male genitalia and keep their testosterone, but say that they’re women in order to intentionally impregnate females in a prison.
“So this is highly, I mean, this is in many cases rape, in most cases rape.
“And they are then suing for a million dollars.
“And according to this Department of Justice official who did not know that she was being videotaped, we released today, she said this is wrong and Merrick Garland is sort of rolling over on this.
“No, we don’t know what the solution is to this public policy issue, but maybe it’s separate prisons for transgender people, maybe it’s keeping people in the biological prison that they were born with.
“So, you know, so this is a big story, and we went to Washington State where a lot of these inmates are, and in this prison in Tacoma, we obtained footage of some of these women pleading through the Plexiglas on these video recordings pleading for help.
“The video I released today, I went there actually on Sunday with my microphone and my cameras, and the prison officials drove onto the public area I was standing across, and they said, “You can’t be here.”
“I said, “Well, I’m a journalist. I could stand here.”
“So this was a product of a source who came to us with video recordings to OMG, and she’s very scared for her life and terrified of retaliation.
Kelly: “This is another situation in which the comfort of biological men takes precedence over the comfort and safety of women.
“These trans women, quote unquote, trying to get into the women’s prisons are men. They’re biological men.
“And so as not to hurt the feelings of these biological men, they force the women who have no choice about where they go to live with them, and some of these guys are sex offenders.
“It’s absolutely outrageous. We reached out to this Washington prison, and we have a statement which I’ll get to in a second. The long and short of it is they’re not sorry. They’re not backing down.
“They prize Equity overall. But here’s just before we get to that, some of the setup so…”
The Washington State Department of Corrections said in a statement:
“Thanks for the inquiry. The Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) strongly emphasizes the importance of inclusion and representation by recognizing the unique challenges that non-binary and transgender incarcerated people face.
“DOC takes allegations of crimes seriously and any person incarcerated at DOC suspected of committing a crime, is subject to the same laws and investigations regardless of where they are housed or their gender. It is DOC’s position that a person’s right to safe and humane treatment does not change based on their gender identity.
“DOC continues to actively work with community outreach organizations to identify and address possible systemic issues regarding housing, mental health and medical services for people who identify as transgender, and the agency remains committed to the health and safety of all people in its custody.
“The policy, DOC 490.700 Transgender, Intersex, and/or Gender Non-binary Housing and Supervision(pdf), establishes procedures to ensure equitable treatment of transgender, intersex and/or gender non-binary people during intake screening and determining housing, classification, programming and supervision.
“All people under DOC’s care and custody are assessed upon intake and, if they self-identify as transgender, intersex and/or gender non-binary, the policy provides detailed guidance on placement and programming. The DOC Health Plan(pdf) provides further guidance on healthcare related issues.
Often, people may think that those who are non-binary or transgender want to be moved to a facility that matches their gender, but this isn’t always the case.
“In fact, a common myth perpetuated about people who are transgender is that they will commit crimes of assault against vulnerable populations. This is not the case.
“DOC has developed a comprehensive housing assignment process to determine where an incarcerated individual is housed considering objective criteria that includes their gender identity. If a person identifies as transgender or non-binary, they participate in a thorough mental health assessment, healthcare assessment and facility evaluation.
“Several multidisciplinary teams must review all requests for transfer for a final placement determination. “Each situation is considered on a case-by-case basis, with a focus on safety both for the individual and those who are housed at the facility.”
