Candace Marie Clairborne on Tuesday broke down in tears as she was sentenced to 40 months in prison for conspiring with foreign agents.
U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss sentenced her to only 40 months for what amounts to treason while she was at the State Department. The judge is an Obama appointee, of course. She was paid tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts in exchange for turning over internal State Department documents. Hillary must be really pissed because China didn’t give her one red cent (pun intended) for allowing them to steal tens of thousands of documents from her illegal server.
U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss, an Obama appointee said, “sentencing is never easy,” but also called Claiborne’s crime, “a truly grave offense, a betrayal of her employer and a betrayal of her country” before giving her 40 months in prison in a D.C. courtroom, reported Fox News.
“I still don’t know how I lost myself,” Claiborne said. Then through tears, “I want to apologize to the government… and my family for what I have done,” reported Fox News producer Jake Gibson.

The Department of Justice announced in April that a former State Department employee who also happened to be a Clinton appointee, pleaded guilty to conspiring with foreign agents.
The FBI arrested Candace Marie Claiborne on March 28th, 2017. She made her first appearance in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia the following day.
According to the DOJ, Candace Marie Claiborne, a former employee of the U.S. Department of State, pleaded guilty in April to a charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States, by lying to law enforcement and background investigators, and hiding her extensive contacts with, and gifts from, agents of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), in exchange for providing them with internal documents from the U.S. State Department.
