Los Alamos National Lab scientist recruited by China, sentenced

A former scientist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory where U.S. nuclear weapons are designed was sentenced to probation and a fine for lying to an Energy Department counterspy operation about his recruitment by the Chinese government.

Turab Lookman, 68, of Santa Fe, New Mexico could have been imprisoned but instead was given five years’ probation and fined $75,000 for hiding his application to join China’s “Thousand Talents” program to recruit foreign scientists.

Mr. Lookman was indicted in May 2019 on three counts of lying about the recruitment effort.

He was charged with not revealing on a 2017 security questionnaire that he had been asked by a Chinese agent to join the talent recruitment program. A year later, he denied when asked by a Los Alamos counterintelligence official if he had been recruited by China for work with a university or other academic post. A third count involved lying to another federal investigator about the recruitment.

In January, Mr. Lookman pleaded guilty to one count of lying about his contacts with China. Two other charges were dropped. He could have faced up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

REPORT: Lawsuit Demands All Epstein Flight Logs Be Made Public, Jeffrey Epstein’s Friends ‘Panicking’

A new lawsuit, filed by the Attorney General of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Denise George, demands that flight logs from Jeffrey Epstein’s four helicopters and three planes be made public, sparking “panic” among the late socialite’s famous friends, according to reports from the U.K.’s Mirror and Daily Mail.

John Adams, 1798:

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Adams was right. The Constitution’s destruction is the sworn goal of the left in this country.

It seems to have few defenders left.
