Robert Hoffman; Submariner spy wannabe

| December 7, 2012

Ex-PH2 sends us a link to an NBC video report about Robert Hoffman, a former member of the Navy who was arrested yesterday for trying to pass information about our submarine technology to people he thought were representing the Russian Federation, but I’m guessing that they were US Federal agents instead.

It should make the submarine folks on this blog happy to finally have one of their own to hate on for a change.

    Yeah, dude was a rider. Unfortunately, he apparently was pretty good at his job, but had a lot of issues when it comes to his family. I personally don’t think I ever rode with him, but the T-bird names and faces run together sometimes. I hope they got him at the start because the stuff he knows could go a long way for the enemy.

      these charges are cover up charges, truth is he has info on a higher up but nothing was done instead they set him up to look like he did this so they could keep him under lock and key. you have no clue the gravity of what is really going on here. there is serious wrong doing in the upper ranks, and no one will stop it because they know they will suffer the same fate.

    He was picked up at a cockfight. Probably goes to dog fights, too. Probably has gambling debts up the wazoo.

    I’d like to see someone stick something nasty up his wazoo.

    • dawn says:

      no he was picked up at home and no family issues and no gambling debt and he did not go to those stupid fights. for your info he knows to much so they have to put him away so he cant spill what he knows. you have no clue of the truth here so please dont make stuff up for something to talk about karmas a bitch and will bite you back

    Well, considering he’s retired, he’s also still subject to the UCMJ. Goody!

    And GF, don’t bullshit me. You’d be curled up in a ball in the valve station crying for your momma before the brow ever came off.

    Kept mostly to himself. He liked beautiful women but was shy with an off color sense of humor. He was a bit of a nerd and could be somewhat boring.

    a sucker with no life execept in prison

    • dawn says:

      a sucker because his country betrayed him, because he did what ever they told him. but he is not the only one this has happened to when the higher ups do wrong its the low dog that pays and he is a low dog on the pole. could be your friend or family member next.

        Please. I hope you don’t really believe that shit he’s obviously feeding you. Do you know how many people have clearances greater than this assholes, yet never “get set up for knowing too much?” BTW, way to open a dead thread, necroposter. I’m sure others will be piling on soon enough.

        You really must be as ignorant and gullible as you sound.

        /The Bitch Set Me Up didn’t work for Marion Barry either.

        Dawn, if everyone else is telling you one thing, and he’s telling you another, then you’re being duped. No criminal ever committed the crime they’re accused of, do you you hear what I’m saying? Every last one of them was driving the getaway car, not one of them was the guy inside actually robbing the bank. It’s the way the game is played.

        People that are closest to criminals are the ones who get hurt the worst, gal.
