Ex-NSA employee sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison for covertly selling classified information to FBI operative

A former NSA employee who sold classified information to who he believed to be a Russian official received a 22-year prison sentence. The judge called the sentence “mercy,” attributing the crime to a desire to betray and sell national security secrets. Defense argued for a lighter sentence due to Dalke’s traumatic past and mental health conditions. Dalke claimed he was not motivated by ideology or money, but possibly by the thrill. He was arrested by the FBI while trying to transfer sensitive information. The FBI emphasized the grave danger the disclosure posed to national security.
