(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A former agent of the National Security Agency (NSA) was arrested after the FBI discovered attempting to sell government secrets to an FBI agent who he thought was a foreign operative.

According to The Daily Wire, Jareh Sebastian Dalke made his first court appearance after his arrest for espionage related charges for transmitting National Defense Information (NDI) to a Russian Operative.

The Department of Justice stated that Dalke used an encrypted email account in order to send many classified documents to someone he believed worked for the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service.

“In actuality, that person was an undercover FBI agent. Dalke subsequently arranged to transfer additional classified information in his possession to the undercover FBI agent at a location in Denver, Colorado,” the DOJ said.

Dalke worked as a systems sercurity designer for the NSA in June and July of this year, and was arrested when he went to meet up with his contact to sell the classified information.

The DOJ said in a statement that Dalke told the undercover FBI agent that he was still working for the NSA and that he would sell secrets for a specific cryptocurrency.

“On or about Aug. 26, 2022, Dalke requested $85,000 in return for additional information in his possession,” the DOJ said. “Dalke also told the FBI undercover agent that he would share additional information in the future, once he returned to the Washington, D.C., area. Although he was not employed by the NSA while communicating with the FBI, Dalke re-applied to the NSA in August 2022.”

Dalke also told the undercover agent that he “recently learned that [his] heritage ties back to [the agent’s] country,” which was reportedly part of why he wanted to sell him the information.

He also stated that he wanted to sell the documents because he “questioned our role in damage to the world in the past and by mixture of curiosity for secrets and a desire to cause change.”

If convicted, Dalke could be sentenced to life in prison or execution.
