“Ron Rockwell Hansen is a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer who allegedly attempted to transmit national defense information to the People's Republic of China's intelligence service (PRCIS) and also allegedly received hundreds of thousands of dollars while illegally acting as an agent of China,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “His alleged actions are a betrayal of our nation's security and the American people and are an affront to his former intelligence community colleagues. Our intelligence professionals swear an oath to protect our country’s most closely held secrets and the National Security Division will continue to relentlessly pursue justice against those who violate this oath.”

“These allegations are very troubling in their description of conduct that runs contrary to how we identify ourselves as Americans,” said U.S. Attorney Huber. “On the other hand, revealed details of this lengthy investigation reflect effective performance and dedication on the part of the men and women of the FBI and their partners.”

“The allegations in this complaint are grave as it appears Mr. Hansen engaged in behavior that betrayed his oath and his country,” said Special Agent in Charge Barnhart. “This case drives home the troubling reality of insider threats and that current and former clearance holders will be targeted by our adversaries. The FBI will aggressively investigate individuals who put our national security at risk.”

Arrested for trying to send defense intelligence information to China...

This will be the first person from Obama era who is facing capital crimes:

Are we going to finally start recognizing the crimes committed by your previous administration? (or at a minimum happening under their noses which is just incompetence)

Dude, from the Obama era? Did you read your article?

DIA hired Hansen as a civilian intelligence case officer in 2006

To say he is from the Obama era is a stretch in reality. Shamelessly trying to associate this clown with Obama seems to be disingenuous at best.

You're blaming this on Obama? Seriously??
This was ongoing between 2013-2017.... Trump can't be responsible for that whole period, and Obama did nothing to stop it.

Who else should be blamed for allowing this to go on for years unimpeded?

So, he continued this THROUGHOUT Obama's term... spying against you and your country the whole time.

There's a REASON WHY SPIES ARE EXECUTED!!!!

It may have been only RECENTLY discovered!

P.S. One of the worst traitors in U.S. history was Aldrich Ames:

Aldrich Ames was a former CIA counter-intelligence officer and analyst before being convicted of espionage in 1994.

Ames had worked for 31 years as a Central Intelligence Agency counter-intelligence officer and had untold access to military data, CIA assets and the names of US agents.

Ames exploited his position and sold this information to the Russian government, jeopardising national security to support his and his wife’s luxurious lifestyle.

He is now serving a life sentence without the chance of parole in the high-security Allenwood U.S. Penitentiary. His escapades were the subject of a 1998 made-for-TV movie.

LeRoy: By YOUR own reasoning, LBJ, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton all LET him get away with doing all his treasonous activities for those 31 years!!!

We hardly EVER execute spies anymore. See post #6. Aldrich Ames was arguably the WORST spy in the history of America, and we did NOT execute him. He is serving a life sentence.

And here is yet another spy who was caught and is serving a life sentence. Obviously, we did not execute this guy, either:
