    US Navy Lieutenant, a "New American", Charged in Case to Defraud US

    US Navy Lieutenant, a ‘New American,’ Charged in Case to Defraud US

    Although this news is a week old, I’m betting most of you haven’t seen it. Thanks to Robert for letting me know….

    From ABC News:

    First see this photo (with caption) ABC published!

    Lt. Fan Yang, left, a tactical coordinator assigned to Patrol Squadron (VP) 5, demonstrates the systems onboard a P-8A Poseidon aircraft to members of the Royal Saudi Naval Forces in an undisclosed location, March 1, 2018.Navy lieutenant and wife charged with conspiracy to defraud the US with inflatable boats, guns

    A U.S. Navy lieutenant and his wife have been arrested for conspiracy to defraud the government, making false statements to investigators and illegally possessing a firearm, according to court documents.

    The two, arrested Oct. 17, have been in custody and were expected to appear in court on Wednesday.

    The indictment accuses Fan Yang, who was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida, and held a top secret clearance, and his wife, Yang Yang, of attempting to transport inflatable boats through Hong Kong with their final destination being the People’s Republic of China.

    The documents said Yang, who came to the United States in 1999 and became a citizen in 2006, was actively serving in the Navy in a “sensitive anti-submarine warfare unit.”

    The pair raised eyebrows when they attempted to purchase engines specifically marked “for military use” through a shell company they set up, authorities said.

    The husband and wife, who lived on the base, requested time off to travel to “Disney” but allegedly traveled to Sioux City, Iowa, instead, the documents said.

    It is not immediately known why they traveled to Iowa, and Yang lied to his Navy supervisors about the trip, according to court documents. Credit card records showed Fang purchased a one-way ticket for a Chinese national — the person for whom the couple allegedly helped obtain illegal firearms.

    Court documents also said that Yang lied on his background check to acquire the top secret security clearance.

    More here.

    How the heck does this happen! Whoever is doing the Navy security clearances needs to be fired!
    If you want to learn more search the traitor’s name and you will find more stories, mostly in Florida media.

    Jacksonville Navy lieutenant under investigation for espionage

    Lt. Fan Yang accused of leaking top secret information to Chinese government

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The case of a Jacksonville-based Navy officer accused of leaking top secret information to the Chinese government was back before a judge Tuesday, and News4Jax has learned prosecutors are seeking special surveillance privileges used for investigating potential spies and terrorists.

    A status conference was held in federal court about which attorneys would be representing Lt. Fan Yang and his wife, Yang Yang.

    The Yangs and two others from China were arrested this month, accused in a scheme to leak U.S. military goods and intelligence to Chinese nationals.


    Judge: Naval officer is 'danger to national security'
    Did info Lt. Yang gave to China compromise national security?
    Documents show Navy lieutenant lied on background checks

    Fan Yang, a China-born U.S. citizen who became a U.S. Navy officer, was not present due to a transportation issue; however, his wife Yang Yang, who is also a U.S. citizen, was in court. With top secret clearance and access to some of the most exclusive military aircraft and equipment, Fan Yang had a lot at his fingertips.

    Federal agents are attempting to link Fan Yang and Yang Yang to a scheme to smuggle inflatable boats and military-use engines to China. They allegedly made more than $200,000 in the scheme. Details started to come out after the FBI and NCIS raided the Yangs' Jacksonville home off San Jose Boulevard.

    The News4Jax I-TEAM learned agents are concerned that's just the tip of the iceberg and that the Yangs could have been involved in something more sinister, like leaking top secret information from the U.S. military to the Chinese government. Investigators have said the couple lied about their contact with potential foreign operatives.

    New court documents, filed from the Department of Justice, show the U.S. is now invoking something called FISA, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. It gives investigators access to surveillance warrants and special privileges when they suspect espionage or terrorism from foreign powers.

    "It is very, very concerning and probably has a big impact on national security," said former FBI agent Toni Chrabot, who now runs Risk Confidence Group.

    "There's potential grave damage that has been done."

    Fan Yang was represented by Dale Carson. Yang Yang was represented by Bill Kent.

    The Yangs' next hearing is scheduled for Thursday at the Federal Courthouse in Downtown Jacksonville. That could change if the couple are indicted before the hearing.

    Jacksonville-based Navy officer, wife indicted in Chinese smuggling scheme

    Lt. Fan Yang and his wife, Yang Yang, were accused of conspiring to help a company import equipment that can’t be shipped to China.

    A Jacksonville-based Navy lieutenant, his wife and two employees of a Chinese technology company have been indicted on charges involving conspiring to smuggle military-style inflatable boats and motors to China.

    Lt. Fan Yang, 34, and his wife, 33-year-old Yang Yang, were also charged with conspiring to help Chinese co-defendant Ge Songtao get and use a handgun during trips to the United States, although that’s illegal for non-immigrant aliens.

    Songtao, 49, is identified in court filings as chairman of the Shanghai Breeze Technology Co. in mainland China. The fourth person indicted, 27-year-old Zheng Yan, is an employee of the same company.

    Both are Chinese citizens.

    Court records said the indictment was filed Thursday but wasn’t publicly posted until Friday.

    Fan Yang, a Chinese-born U.S. citizen, has been assigned to the Maritime Patrol Reconnaissance Weapons School at Naval Air Station Jacksonville with a top-secret security clearance. He trained as a naval flight officer responsible for weapons and tactics aboard the P-8 antisubmarine aircraft.

    A court filing said Yang Yang, also a naturalized U.S. citizen, had worked with Shanghai Breeze since 2016. Over time, an investigator’s affidavit said, the Chinese company had wired about $205,000 to a business that Yang Yang incorporated called BQ Tree LLC.

    What the Chinese company wanted, court filings said, was to have American companies that sold equipment to the Navy export items that couldn’t legally be sent to mainland China.

    The indictment said Yang Yang helped Shanghai Breeze by acting as a point of contact with an unnamed marine manufacturer in California, with Fan Yang advising her.

    Yang Yang, Ge and Zheng were accused of filing fake information to try to export seven vessels and eight engines that would have ended up at Shanghai Breeze offices in China.

    Fan Yang was also charged with making false statements when he renewed his security clearance in January and making false statements to a gun dealer to get a gun that was intended for Ge.
