The husband and wife team facing espionage charges after they allegedly tried to sell stolen nuclear secrets to a foreign power have been revealed to be anti-Trump leftists.
Imagine my shock.
Diana Toebbe and Jonathan Toebbe were charged with violations of the Atomic Energy Act by federal prosecutors after they tried to sell nuclear-powered submarine secrets to someone who they thought was a representative of the unnamed foreign country.
In fact, the couple had been talking to an undercover FBI agent all along.
“The complaint charges a plot to transmit information relating to the design of our nuclear submarines to a foreign nation,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement.
“The work of the FBI, Department of Justice prosecutors, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Department of Energy was critical in thwarting the plot charged in the complaint and taking this first step in bringing the perpetrators to justice.”
Jonathan Toebbe contacted the foreign government in April 2020 in an attempt to set up an arrangement to funnel restricted information, but that government immediately reported him to the FBI.
“The Toebbes received a $10,000 payment in cryptocurrency from the undercover agent as part of the investigation and made multiple “dead drops” to hand over the top-secret documents related to nuclear-powered warships,” reports Heavy, citing the criminal complaint.
It seems almost certain that part of the couple’s motivation, aside from money, was their far-left, Trump-hating politics.
Diana Toebbe’s Facebook and Twitter pages clearly indicate that she suffered from Trump Derangement Syndrome, retweeting numerous anti-Trump screeds.

How? By selling sensitive information to foreign nations?
Another post featured a photo from the anti-Trump women’s march, urging people to “stay angry.”
Toebbe was also a vehement supporter of Black Lives Matter.

As well as the LGBT and transgender lobby.
If convicted, the couple face a maximum sentence of life in prison or death.
