Former Defense Intelligence Officer Pleads Guilty to Attempted Espionage

Hmmm part of those indictments no doubt.

Former Defense Intelligence Officer Pleads Guilty to Attempted Espionage

"Ron Rockwell Hansen, 58, a resident of Syracuse, Utah, and a former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) officer, pleaded guilty today in the District of Utah in connection with his attempted transmission of national defense information to the People’s Republic of China.  Sentencing is set for Sept. 24, 2019. 

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney John Huber for the District of Utah and Special Agent in Charge Paul Haertel of the FBI’s Salt Lake City Field Office announced the charges.

Hansen retired from the U.S. Army as a Warrant Officer with a background in signals intelligence and human intelligence.  He speaks fluent Mandarin-Chinese and Russian.  DIA hired Hansen as a civilian intelligence case officer in 2006.  Hansen held a Top Secret clearance for many years, and signed several non-disclosure agreements during his tenure at DIA and as a government contractor.

As Hansen admitted in the plea agreement, in early 2014, agents of a Chinese intelligence service targeted Hansen for recruitment and he began meeting with them regularly in China.  During those meetings, the Chinese agents described to Hansen the type of information that would interest the Chinese intelligence service.  During the course of his relationship with the agents of the Chinese intelligence service, Hansen received hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for information he provided them, including information he gathered at various industry conferences.  Between May 24, 2016 and June 2, 2018, Hansen solicited from an intelligence case officer working for the DIA national defense information that Hansen knew the Chinese intelligence service would find valuable.  Hansen agreed to act as a conduit to sell that information to the Chinese.  Hansen advised the DIA case officer how to record and transmit classified information without detection, and explained how to hide and launder any funds received as payment for classified information.  The DIA case officer reported Hansen’s conduct to the DIA and subsequently acted as a confidential human source for the FBI. ...."

I would guess will be hearing about the small fish to prep for the big fish.
Thanks Sully. Yep I would imagine they'll work their way up the food chain.

Seems we heard about China before with Sen Feinstein. Wonder how many more China connections? I remember when Clinton was pres, he declassified some of our super secret technology and sold it to china. Looks like this site may still be operational. Says not secure but info is still there. http://alamo-girl.com

Appears that the late, patriotic and over zealous Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin was on to how much infiltrated our government was & is?

As spy US intelligence officer Hansen was found guilty by a fair trial, he deserves the standard military treatment for betraying the trust & oath to the American people for 30 pieces of Chinese silver, and be shot at dawn for high treason as a warning example to others who want to Tread on the USA

Thanks Eddessa. Gitmo has been revamped and someone posted there are prison ships docked there so perhaps more will follow his sorry excuse for a self. If he's not summarily executed I hope he spends the rest of his life securely confined.
Doesn't look like a very intelligent intelligence officer. Max sentence.
Thanks Jarasan. Guess he thought she'd never lose and could skate by. New sheriff in town.
