Former CIA officer pleads guilty to spying for China

A former CIA officer has pleaded guilty to conspiring to pass US defense and intelligence secrets to China, the US DOJ said on Wednesday. Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 54, was approached in 2010 by two Chinese intelligence officers who offered to pay him $100,000 and to take care of him ’for life’ for information he had acquired as a CIA officer. Lee left the CIA in 2007 and moved to Hong Kong.

Another Democrat. Well, the Feinstein and Debbie Wasserman Schultz spy team getting bigger every day. Nothing says Democrat like selling out America to the Chinese Communist party.

Has literally nothing to do with Trump however a good time to remind everyone about CIA warcrimes, election interference, mass surveillance, and assassinations on US citizens and leaders.

It’s almost as if in a capitalist society people are incentivized to make a profit and people are not necessarily incentivized to make moral, rational or ethical decisions. I think that this man made a reasonable decision giving the fact in this society there may not be a clear division of good and evil, moral or amoral . But there is a division on rich and poor, this guy made his decision. Money at what ever cost

As if China, Russia and the EU don't have the same goals. Global Eurasian styled socialism.

Everyone has a price and his was next to nothing. I don't blame him for betraying the United States (though treason should be a capital offense), I'm not sure what I would do myself if someone offered to support me financially for the rest of my life (and I believed them) maybe that is an issue we need to look at as a society.

Why did the guy come back AFTER being indicted??? This seems VERY fishy like he has been a double agent the whole time or something.
