An unnamed Navy nuclear engineer and his wife have been sentenced to 20 years in prison for trying to sell classified information about an American nuclear-powered warship, according to Reuters.

Jonathan Toebe, 43, and his Trump-hating teacher wife, Diana, were arrested last October when prosecutors said he had contacted a foreign government in an attempt to provide the nation with thousands of pages of secret documents about a nuclear reactor that could power the United States. Submarine fleet.

The identity of the foreign power was kept secret by federal prosecutors. It was widely speculated that it was France, after investigators revealed that Toebs had contacted a friendly foreign power rather than an opponent.

However, a senior Brazilian official and others familiar with the investigation confirmed that Toeb had contacted their government during April 2020, the New York Times reported Tuesday.

Analysts allege that Toeb’s outreach was a “strange choice” given that then-President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro strengthened the alliance between the two countries. Some argue that US-Brazil relations at that time were the closest in decades.

It launched a month-long undercover operation where agents contacted Toeb and agreed to pay $ 100,000 in cryptocurrency for information that Toeb was providing. Toebbe had already been paid $ 70,000 before being caught.
