The FBI has arrested a former defense intelligence officer who is accused of "attempted transmission of national defense information to the Peoples Republic of China or, espionage.
According to the Justice Department, Ron Rockwell Hansen, 38, of Utah, was arrested Saturday afternoon as he was on his way to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to board a flight to China.
Hansen, who worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency, is accused of attempting to transmit national defense information to Chinas intelligence service, known as PRCIS, and receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars while acting as an agent of the country.
Court documents show that Hansen retired from the U.S. Army as a warrant officer and was hired by DIA as a civilian intelligence case officer in 2006, where he held a top security clearance.
Between 2013 and 2017, Hansen regularly traveled between the United States and China, attending military and intelligence conferences in the U.S. and provided the information he learned at the conferences to contacts in China associated with the PRCIS, court documents show. Hansen received payments for this information by a variety of methods, including cash, wires and credit card transactions. He also improperly sold export-controlled technology to persons in China. From May of 2013 to the date of the complaint, Hansen received not less than $800,000 in funds originating from China.

I despise traitors. We need to bring back swift capital punishment for such offenses.
Hang him by the neck until dead.
Did he piss off Hillary or something?
Unless this guy is something special, I don’t think he’ll exceed Robert Hanssen in infamy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Hanssen
hanging, public square. sell tickets for the good seats.
Is treason, no?
Can’t be. They used the word “intelligence” in there.
The ChiComs would IMMEDIATELY execute this traitor.
Execution by Electrocution.
If it was good enough for the Rosenbergs it’s good enough for this trash.
Then dump his body at sea.
Who did he piss off and who brought the charges against him? I don’t trust anybody in government and will not believe anything they say.
No its violation of the Espionage Act!
The Founding Fatbers purposely made treason a very difficult charge to make.
Egghead McMullin voter and Mittens cheerleader?
A pittance compared to what Hillary did. It’s a token crumb from Sessions.
Works for me...
What difference does it make when most of Washington DC is treasonous. Obama and Clinton belong in prison or swinging.
Another damn Hansen.
Just like another damn Walker.
After a trial of course.
I just saw a MSN article on this, which identified him as:
“Ron Rockwell Hansen, 58”
So, according to you, it is not treason, right?
Tell that to the thousands of U.S. military personnel (or indeed U.S. civilians) who could lose their lives, right?
