FBI Visits Texas Nurse Who Blew the Whistle on Children’s Hospital’s Gender Surgery Program

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has sent two FBI agents to intimidate a nurse who blew the whistle to expose controversial practices at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Vanessa Sivadge, who is a nurse at the facility, accused the nation’s largest children’s hospital of illegally billing taxpayers for “transgender” treatments for kids.

However, Sivadge has now revealed that FBI agents showed up at her house to intimidate her for speaking out.

Sivadge said the alleged feds “promised they would make life difficult” for her.

The agents also reportedly warned her that she was “not safe at work” after she started speaking out about the facility’s child “sex-change” practices.

Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is currently investigating her allegations, a spokesperson for his office revealed in a statement.

Sivadge told conservative journalist Chris Rufo that the hospital was billing gender surgeries and “transgender medicine” to Medicaid.

Texas law prohibits the use of taxpayer funds for such treatments for children, however.

“It is evident that the hospital continues to believe it is above the law — not just by concealing the existence of their transgender medicine program from the public, but by stealing from the federal government,” she said.

Two weeks later, Rufo reported, the men who identified themselves as FBI agents showed up at her door and accused her of breaking federal privacy laws.

“They threatened me,” Sivadge told Rufo.

“They promised they would make life difficult for me if I was trying to protect the leaker.

“They said I was ‘not safe’ at work and claimed that someone at my workplace had given my name to the FBI.”


In her conversation with Rufo, she also alleged that one doctor she worked with took an uncritical approach to providing medical intervention for her children who said they wanted to “transition to another gender.”

“He is extremely encouraging of their transition and will essentially do whatever he can to make sure that they are happy, at least externally happy,” she said.

“Because I am absolutely certain that they are not internally happy.

“He is very accommodating. He does whatever they want.”

Previously, in 2023, Dr. Eithan Haim, a surgeon who completed his residency at the Texas Children’s Hospital, leaked documents to Rufo that reportedly revealed the hospital was conducting life-altering transgender surgeries on kids in secret to skirt state law.

In 2022, Paxton issued an opinion declaring sex-change treatments on minors are a form of child abuse.

The hospital announced weeks later that it would stop the procedures.

However, just three days after the hospital’s announcement, they implanted a hormone device into an 11-year-old girl for gender dysphoria, Haim alleged.

Haim also claimed that the hospital only increased the frequency of such procedures from that point, while “potentially hundreds more children received hormone interventions for gender dysphoria” over the next year.

In response to the allegations, the Texas legislature banned drug and surgical sex changes for minors.

But the next month, when Haim was supposed to graduate from his residency at the hospital, he received a knock at his door from authorities who handed him a letter identifying him as a “potential target” in a federal probe, he claims.

He has since been indicted on four counts of violating HIPPA medical privacy laws.

While Paxton is pressing the issue, Texas state Rep. Brian Harrison is calling for the state legislature to hold hearings to investigate the whistleblowers’ claims and the Biden administration’s “unconstitutional tyranny.”

“We need Republicans to be courageous in fighting back against the unconstitutional tyranny of the Biden administration,” Harrison said in a statement.

“And so what I’m asking is that the Texas House of Representatives act in the way that it should act, and the way that I’m demanding it to act, which is to hold immediate hearings, but also to launch a formal investigation and subpoena any federal official, the DOJ, and HHS, who may have been involved in this, any hospital executives who knew that they were engaged in practices that were, in fact, child abuse,” he added.

“The Biden administration, their goal here is to stifle dissent.

“They want to silence opposition,”
