  • State Dept. employee accused of misleading FBI in China case

    WASHINGTON (AP) 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 said Wednesday.

    A criminal complaint accuses Candace Marie Claiborne, who appeared before a judge Wednesday, of concealing her contacts with the intelligence agents and failing to report gifts she had received from them, including an iPhone, a laptop, international travel and vacations, school tuition and cash wired to an account.

    Claiborne, 60, was arrested Tuesday. Family members who were in court declined to comment on her behalf.

    Prosecutors say two intelligence agents provided Claiborne, who joined the State Department in 1999 and served in different overseas locations, and her family with thousands of dollars in gifts and benefits over five years.
