President Donald Trump said he would drain the swamp, and that’s exactly what he’s doing!
A veteran State Department employee has been charged with making false statements to the FBI about gifts she had received from Chinese intelligence agents, the Justice Department announced.
A criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday accuses Candace Marie Claiborne, who appeared before a judge, of concealing her contacts with the intelligence agents and failing to report gifts she had received from them, including an iPhone, a laptop and international travel.
Claiborne, 60, was arrested Tuesday. Family members who were in court declined to comment on her behalf.
Prosecutors said two intelligence agents provided Claiborne, who joined the State Department in 1999 and served in different overseas location, and her family with thousands of dollars in gifts and benefits over five years. Claiborne has served overseas at a number of posts, including embassies and consulates in Baghdad, Iraq, Khartoum, Sudan, and Beijing and Shanghai, China.
Keep it up Trump!
