Former Chinese translator admits to selling information to Chinese spy, much of that information came from her State Department boyfriend, and she walks. 

A recently released legal document revealed Xiaming Gao accused of sharing government information with an alleged agent of the Chinese government.  An affidavit filed by, Timothy Pappa, an FBI agent, accuses Gao of receiving thousands of dollars to provide information on U.S. citizen and an employee of the State Department. 

She lived with the State Department employee that she shared information about, he had a ‘top secret’ government clearance, but it didn’t end there.  She also sold information about another State Department employee.

Fox News, gained the affidavit and claim the State Department employee admitted to sharing details of his job with Gao. 

According to records, Gao sold information to an alleged spy she called, ‘Teacher Zhao,’ Gao and Zhao met in Chinese hotels over many years.  In addition to admitting to the meetings she also said she reported on her ‘social contacts’ in the United States.

A former deputy assistant attorney general told the sometimes prevaricating network, “Its not clear to me, based on the court files that were unsealed, how a prosecution of this person could possibly have compromised U.S. intelligence gathering.”

Gao worked in the Office of Language Services from June 2010 to February 2014 as a contract interpreter.  She currently works for a consulting firm, allegedly a firm that works with government contracts. 

The spy assist will not lead to her facing any charges, the decision not to prosecute has American’s scratching their heads.
