Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were American citizens who were accused and convicted of spying on behalf of the Soviet Union.
The couple were accused of providing top-secret information about radar, sonar, jet propulsion engines, and valuable nuclear weapon designs; at that time the United States was the only country in the world with nuclear weapons.
Convicted of espionage in 1951, they were executed by the federal government of the United States in 1953 in the Sing Sing correctional facility in Ossining, New York.
Other convicted co-conspirators were sentenced to prison, including Ethel’s brother, David Greenglass (who had made a plea agreement), Harry Gold, and Morton Sobell. Klaus Fuchs, a German scientist working in Los Alamos, was convicted in the United Kingdom.
Ethel took the notes and typed them up for the Soviets. This accusation seems to be the only direct evidence of Ethel’s involvement in her husband’s spying activities.
This story is nothing new, but what is new is that 2020 Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren sent a letter to (then) President Obama asking for exoneration of communist spy Ethel Rosenberg.
Here is the full letter from Senator Elizabeth Warren to Barack Obama.

So if by any chance Warren ever gets into the White House she will do much more than just pardoning the biggest traitors in our history, she might even put some of them in charge.
