Breitbart is reporting that an engineer for Raytheon Missile Systems was recently sentenced to prison for smuggling vital surface-to-air missile technology back to Communist China.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Wednesday that former Raytheon engineer Wei Sun has been sentenced to 38 months in prison for transferring sensitive missile technology to China in violation of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).
Sun, 49, is a Chinese national and naturalized U.S. citizen who worked as a highly-skilled electrical engineer for Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS) in Tucson, Arizona, from 2009 until 2019. RMS manufactures surface-to-air, air-to-ground, and ballistic missiles for various branches of the U.S. military.
Sun obtained a secret-level security clearance in the course of his employment, which was necessary because his work required “access to information directly relating to advanced and sensitive missile defense-related technology, some of which constituted defense articles controlled and regulated under the Arms Control Export Act,” as the January 2020 indictment against him explained.

Of course, the Communist regime is not satisfied with stealing just military technology and deadly viruses, but it also wants to destroy the US economy.
AND THEN THERE IS RESEARCH.
