The wife of a U.S. Navy nuclear submarine engineer arrested and charged with espionage after selling sensitive data to an undercover FBI agent posing as a representative of a foreign government is a left-wing activist who opposed former President Donald Trump.
Diana Toebbe will appear with her husband, Jonathan Toebbe, in federal court on Tuesday on charges of selling classified military secrets pertaining to nuclear submarines to an unidentified foreign country.
Her social media accounts indicate she is a supporter of “The Resistance” as well as 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. She has also shared posts supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement and “stopping Donald Trump,” the Daily Mail reported.
The outlet noted that one of her retweets in 2017, a few days after Trump was inaugurated, contains a photo that says, “To the rest of the world, due to an insufficient amount of moral courage, America is temporarily out of order. We hope to restore service as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we in the resistance movement join hands with those around the world who realize we are one people. May the forces of good be with us. #TheResistance.”
A humanities professor at the Key School for the past decade, a progressive private institution in Annapolis, Md., where she taught English and history, a former student, Craig Martien, 20, who graduated in 2019, described Diana as “insanely smart” but who was also upset by Trump’s victory and contemplated moving to Australia.
That’s hilarious. If she actually made it to Australia, she’d be under martial law. But then, selective oppression of rights is what the Left is all about.
According to a criminal complaint filed by the government, Jonathan Toebbe sold secrets to the undercover FBI agent for much of last year involving the Navy’s newest and most sophisticated nuclear-powered attack sub, the Virginia class.
The Justice Department maintains that he sent documents in April 2020 to a foreign government informing officials he sought to sell them classified information about nuclear reactors that power the subs. While the foreign power wasn’t named, officials with that government — presumed to be a U.S. ally — contacted American officials and passed the documents along to them in December 2020 after the election.
Traitors get off way too easy in this country. Both of them should be taken out and shot.
