But This Is Treason

Edited Quote:
According to court documents, Petty Officer Wenheng Zhao, 26, aka Thomas Zhao, of Monterey Park, California, received at least $14,866 in at least 14 separate bribe payments from an intelligence officer of the People’s Republic of China to secretly collect and transmit to the intelligence officer information regarding U.S. Navy operational security, military trainings and exercises, and critical infrastructure. Zhao entered restricted military and naval installations to collect and record this information.

He used sophisticated encrypted communication methods to transmit the information. He also destroyed evidence and concealed his relationship with the intelligence officer. He sent the intelligence officer operational plans for a large-scale U.S. military exercise in the Indo-Pacific Region, detailing the specific location and timing of naval movements, amphibious landings, maritime operations and logistics support, and photographs of electrical diagrams and blueprints for a radar system stationed on a U.S. military base in Okinawa, Japan.

Prosecutors contend Zhao obtained and transmitted details about the Navy’s operational security at the Naval Base in Ventura County and on San Clemente Island, including photographs and videos.
The damage here in the event of a war could have been and could still be catastrophic

And for that he gets two years. And a fine that’s about a third of the money he got for his treason. People have gotten more than this for petty crimes.

He committed treason but wasn’t charged with treason. Why not? Others who committed treason have been punished with life imprisonment and some with execution. In this case, a huge concession was made - to Communist China. Why?

Why if not because China owns “President” Biden?

Yes, it’s precisely because Xi owns Biden.
Biden is as much of a traitor as this guy, and he’s already sold us out for more than what this guy got. What a sham our entire government is.

Jonathan Pollard, also serving in the US Navy, also sold US military secrets to a foreign country. He sold them to an ally (Israel) for less money than Zhao received for selling them to an enemy (China). Pollard was imprisoned for 30 years.

If the time he served was a just punishment, then it is wrong that Zhao has not been sentenced to prison for at least the same stretch of time.

Zhao’s punishment of two years in prison and a small fine is a mockery of the law.

Yes. Another case is Ray Epps, who the DOJ finally charged almost 3 years after Jan. 6.
He was obviously there to provoke people to “Go INTO the Capitol” - a phrase he repeated to the crowd over and over - which turned out to be what so many were charged with and recieved long prison sentences for - but he didn’t even get any jail time! I’m sure they want to pretend that their charging him proves he wasn’t working for them, but the slap on the wrist they gave him proves the exact opposite.

Well said! They prove what fools they are by assuming that we are easily fooled.
