Candace Marie Claiborne, a 60-year-old employee of the U.S. Department of State, was charged Wednesday with obstructing an official proceeding and making false statements to the FBI -- both felony offenses -- for allegedly concealing numerous contacts that she had over a period of years with Chinese intelligence agents, the Justice Department said Wednesday.

The veteran State Department employee, who appeared before a judge Wednesday, is also accused of failing to report gifts she received from Chinese contacts.

Claiborne allegedly failed to report repeated contacts with two intelligence agents of the People’s Republic of China, and the agents provided tens of thousands of dollars in gifts and benefits to Claiborne and her family over five years, prosecutors said.

According to an affidavit, the gifts and benefits included cash wired to Claiborne’s bank account, an Apple iPhone and laptop computer, Chinese New Year’s gifts, meals, international travel and vacations, tuition at a Chinese fashion school, a fully furnished apartment and a monthly stipend. Some of these gifts and benefits were provided directly to Claiborne, the affidavit alleges, while others were provided through a co-conspirator.

The Justice Department alleges that she wrote in her journal that she could “generate 20k in 1 year” through her work with one of the intelligence agents.

Hopefully this means we have multiple grand juries in operation and she is the first in a very long line to be indicted.

......" for allegedly concealing numerous contacts that she had over a period of years with Chinese intelligence agents"...

Sounds like "spy" in the sky to me......Another over confident one, too long in her position who believed she was immune from being caught.

Here's another one...

Just a little fan-fiction here. Please indulge me.

Candace Marie Claiborne Hillary Rodham Clinton, an 60 80-ish-year-old employee of the U.S. Department of State, was charged Wednesday with obstructing an official proceeding and making false statements to the FBI -- both felony offenses -- for allegedly concealing numerous thousands of contacts that she had over a period of years decades with Chinese intelligence agents, the Justice Department said Wednesday.


The veteran former Senator and State Department employee, who appeared before a judge Wednesday, is also accused of failing to report gifts she received from Chinese contacts.


Claiborne Clinton allegedly failed to report repeated thousands of contacts with two dozens of intelligence agents of the People’s Republic of China, and the agents provided tens of thousands millions of dollars in gifts and benefits to Claiborne Clinton and her family over five years decades, prosecutors said.


Just a fantasy...

Did you ever hear of her before? I didn’t and will guess you did not either. She is a nobody as far as front line politics go. She’s not a Hillary or Obama which was the point in my post.

Well, shoot.

I wanted the thread prize after doing all that fancy html stuff. Didn’t you feel like you were reading an alternate universe article and replacing H with this other treasonous hag?

Who ever heard of Hugh Sloan anyway...?

(I had to look him up -mostly before my time).

Maybe next time...

The tip of what? They will burn the people under them in hopes to insulate themselves from prosecution...and it will most likely work. This is why we are STILL dealing with shenagins of Susan Rice... she should be in jail already!

No one suggested or implied it was Hillary. Not the title nor the body of the article. The government is infested with these types. And btw, they don’t turn over DOJ lecterns to nobodies so they can speak to the media.
