CNN: Longtime FBI Employee Pleads Guilty to Espionage

FBIA naturalized American citizen from China has pleaded guilty to espionage in a New York courtroom and faces 10 years in prison, reports CNN.

Kun Shan Chun, who also goes by the name of Joey Chun, pleaded guilty to providing sensitive information to someone with connections to the Chinese government.

Chun has worked for the FBI for 19 years and had a top secret clearance.

Prosecutor Preet Bharara said Chun “betrayed our nation.”

“When the perpetrator is an FBI employee, like Kun Shan Chun, the threat is all the more serious and the betrayal all the more duplicitous,” he said.

Chun who was arrested in March in an undercover sting will be sentenced December 2.

  1. RE:Longtime FBI employee pleads guilty to espionage: AsAmNews is a racist publication! Doesn’t even mention the arresting FBI is also Chinese American and not a sellout spy.

    • RE: Longtime FBI employee pleads guilty to espionage: We’ve read numerous accounts of this arrest and do not have information that the FBI agent was also Chinese Americans. If we confirm your information, we’d be happy to report it. Please cite a source.
