HIM!!! ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A federal jury convicted
a former Central Intelligence Agency case officer today on espionage charges related
to his transmission of classified documents to an agent of the People’s Republic of
China. According to court records and evidence presented
at trial, in March and April 2017, Kevin Patrick Mallory, 61, of Leesburg, travelled to Shanghai
and met with an individual, Michael Yang, whom he quickly concluded was working for
the People’s Republic of China Intelligence Service (PRCIS). During a voluntary interview
with FBI agents on May 24, 2007, Mallory stated that Yang represented himself as working for
a People’s Republic of China think tank, however Mallory stated that he assessed Yang
to be a Chinese Intelligence Officer. “There are few crimes in this country more
serious than espionage,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern
District of Virginia. “This office has a long history of holding those accountable
who betray their country and try and profit off of classified information. This case should
send a message to anyone considering violating the public’s trust and compromising our
national security by disclosing classified information. We will remain steadfast and
dogged in pursuit of these challenging but critical national security cases.” Mallory, a United States citizen who speaks
fluent Mandarin Chinese, told FBI agents he travelled to Shanghai in March and April to
meet with Yang and Yang’s boss. After Mallory consented to a review of a covert communications
(covcom) device he had been given by Yang in order to communicate covertly with Yang,
FBI agents viewed a message from Mallory to Yang in which Mallory stated that he could
come in the middle of June and he could bring the remainder of the documents with him at
that time. Analysis of the device, which was a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, also revealed
a handwritten index describing eight different documents later determined to be classified.
Four of the eight documents listed in the index were found stored on the device, with
three being confirmed as containing classified information pertaining to the same U.S. government
agency. One of those documents was classified TOP SECRET, while the remaining two documents
were classified SECRET. FBI analysts were able to determine that Mallory had completed
all of the steps necessary to securely transmit at least four documents via the covcom device,
one of which contained unique identifiers for human sources who had helped the United
States government. “It is a sad day when an American citizen
is convicted of spying on behalf of a foreign power,” said Assistant Attorney General
Demers. “This act of espionage was no isolated incident. The People’s Republic of China
has made a sophisticated and concerted effort to steal our nation’s secrets. Today’s
conviction demonstrates that we remain vigilant against this threat and hold accountable all
those who put the United States at risk through espionage.” Evidence presented at trial included surveillance
video from a FedEx store in Leesburg where Mallory could be seen scanning the eight classified
documents and a handwritten table of contents onto a micro SD card. Though Mallory shredded
the paper copies of the eight documents, an SD card containing those documents and table
of contents was later found carefully concealed in his house when it was searched on June
22, 2017, the date of his arrest. A recording was played at trial from June 24, 2017, where
Mallory could be heard on a call from the jail calling his family to ask them to search
for the SD card. “This trial highlights a serious threat
to U.S. national security,” said Nancy McNamara, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s
Washington Field Office. “Foreign intelligence agents are targeting former U.S. Government
security clearance holders in order to recruit them and steal our secrets. This case should
send a message to foreign intelligence services and those caught up in their web: we are watching
and we will investigate and prosecute those who willfully violate their obligations to
protect national security secrets. I want to start by thanking the prosecutors of the
U.S. Attorney’s Office, the trial attorneys of the Justice Department and particularly
the special agents, analysts and professional staff of the FBI’s Washington Field Office
for their hard work.” Mallory has held numerous positions with various
government agencies and several defense contractors, including working as a covert case officer
for the CIA and an intelligence officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency. As required
for his various government positions, Mallory obtained a Top Secret security clearance,
which was active during various assignments during his career. Mallory’s security clearance
was terminated in October 2012 when he left government service. Mallory was convicted of conspiracy to deliver,
attempted delivery, delivery of defense information to aid a foreign government, and making material
false statements. He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison when sentenced on September
21. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties.
A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the
U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

  1. Why don't we see arrest of Rosenstein, Comey, lynch, Clapper, Brennan, Rice, McCabe and too many to list who did treason against America?

  2. He is a traitor. Why isn't he sentenced to death like the Rosenbergs? The U.S. has become an absolute wuess regarding criminal issues. He did the crime, now its pay up time. Will they seize all of his assets? Wish I could be part of the sentencing determination.

  3. Message of the DOJ toward Trump? After Trump's message with pardons…This is Not News Today 365 and they are a Russian Bot troll site dedicated to dividing Real Americans. That is what they do.
