A former officer with the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency was arrested over the weekend for allegedly trying to spy on the United States for China, the Justice Department said on Monday.
The department said the suspect is accused of trying to transmit national defense information to China and with receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars while acting illegally as an agent for the Chinese government. He was taken into custody while he was on his way to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport ...

A Democrat for sure.
I don’t understand why Stephan Halper has not been arrested for spygate and spying on the trump campaign for Hillary / obozo!!
Cmon, you know why.
I see after reviewing posts (this morning here, just woke up) there are at least three separate articles on FR.
One of which identifies the guy as being 38.
So which is it, media? What a bunch of lamebrains.
Perhaps they've got this guy confused with the Clintons who sold our Missile technology to the Chinese back in 1990's.
(And got away scot-free with a ton of Chinese money)
Flashback: Bill Clinton Gave China Missile Technology
"With all this talk of Russians allegedly interfering in U.S. elections, it is worth recalling that it wasnt too long ago that the previous Democrat in the White House betrayed America by working hand in hand with our Communist enemies in mainland China.
As president, Bill Clinton essentially wiped out any strategic advantage the U.S. had by selling advanced U.S. missile technology to our enemy, the Peoples Republic of China.
That administrations voluntary release of all the secrets of Americas nuclear tests, combined with the systematic theft of the secrets that were left as a result of its lax security controls, effectively wiped out Americas technological edge, David Horowitz writes in the recently published, The Black Book of the American Left Volume 7: The Left in Power: Clinton to Obama.
Unlike the administrations that preceded it, the Clinton administration accepted millions of dollars from the military and intelligence services of at least one hostile foreign power. All of this was done in exchange for illegal campaign contributions from a massive totalitarian country determined to eclipse the U.S. as a world superpower.
President Clinton also lifted security controls, allowing thieves to access other vital military technologies, while disarming his own side and opposing needed defenses." "Back in the 1990s, as longtime Clinton bagman Terry McAuliffe, now governor of Virginia, set records raising money for the Clintons. In that era congressional investigators unearthed an elaborate Communist Chinese money-laundering scheme.
Under it money was funneled to the Clinton organization through businesspeople, including Yah Lin Charlie Trie. In that case, 94 individuals either refused questioning, pled the Fifth Amendment, or fled the country. Trie accepted a plea bargain with federal prosecutors in 1999 in exchange for providing information about questionable campaign contributions from China.
McAuliffe helped a company called Loral Space get seats on official trade missions. He reportedly convinced the Clinton administration to overrule national security officials in order win approval for a Loral deal that gave Red China critical missile technology. Lorals chief executive officer became the Democratic National Committees largest donor and McAuliffe became DNC chairman.
According to a Wall Street Journal account from Clinton days, a bipartisan congressional inquiry found Beijing has stolen U.S. design data for nearly all elements needed for a major nuclear attack on the U.S., such as advanced warheads, missiles, and guidance systems. Targets of the spying ranged from an Army anti-tank weapon to nearly all modern fighter jets. Most wasnt done by professionals, but by visitors or front companies. Lax security by the Clinton Administration is blamed in part, and satellite makers Hughes and Loral are criticized.
Chinas theft of American technology gave it a 20-year head start in developing its own nuclear warhead delivery system, Horowitz writes.
Hughes and Loral, large contributors to Clintons campaign coffers, gave the Chinese technology to deliver nuclear payloads.
They were able to accomplish this with indispensable assistance provided by the Clinton White House that allowed them to circumvent technology controls instituted for national-security purposes by previous administrations, writes Horowitz."

They threw the Lewinsky scandal in as a red herring. Moral of the story: If you’ve just betrayed your country, go ball an intern and then “leak” it.
Because you can hang around wherever you want, spread any misinformation you want, and inform on whomever you want, even wear a wire, and if you get paid to do it, all the better. No way of stopping it through legal process, although if you’re caught doing it, they can throw you out on your ear and forbid you from being on campaign premises forever more.
Sorry, actually four.
This one here, seems to have most of the comments:
Sum Ting Wong?
Racism. You’re worse than Roseanne./s
They also started pushing for more campaign finance laws, even though taking foreign contributions was already illegal, and even though selling military secrets to enemies of the US is treason. Never mind. Change the subject. Let’s put limits on soft money blahblahblah.
I am still convinced that the whole uproar over Monica Lewinsky was to distract the public from this treason. Bill Clinton could have defused the Monica situation by defiantly saying something like, "Yeah, I was doing an intern. Watcha gonna do about it?" And the issue would have plummeted out of public view. But instead, he dissembled, therefore making Monica the central topic of discussion. And thus, he very successfully drew our collective attention away from the fact that he sold high-level technology to China. And his "wife" committed a similar high level treasonous act by selling uranium to Russia.
Bill Clinton is the reason I stopped voting Democrat.
Correct. The DoD was always in charge of dual-use and military export controls. Clinton took that control away from them and gave it to the Commerce Department headed by Ron Brown, remember him? He who died of injuries received in a plane crash in Croatia in 96, I believe? The airplane slammed into a cliff wall in low visibility despite it be 5 kilometers of vis at the time. And pay no attention to the bullet hole found in Browns head during the autopsy, which was “revised’ to omit the hole in the skull. All this while quietly removing the pathologist who had the temerity to question the initial finding based on the obvious homicide evidence by the freaking bullet hole in Brown’s head..
Why you tryin to Jap me man? lol
Some upscale housing communities in the U.S. are totally bankrolled by the Chinese government.
They don’t even need to import them, there’s plenty of 3rd and 4th generation Chinese who are “American” as can be on paper that have been caught spying.
Chinese act collectively based on their ethnic identity and don’t have this “white guilt” and anti-racism ideology to stifle it.
Hansen, reportedly DIA. Does the name HANSEN or HANSON strike any memory chords from years ago? It does to me. Probably not a relative but....
We live in strange times, I tell ya, strange times!
