Former CIA officer, Jerry Chun Shing Lee, has been sentenced to almost two decades in prison after conspiring to hand over sensitive information to China. Reports say there is no proof that Lee was successful in his operations before his arrest. He had received over $840,000 from Chinese intelligence officers, had interactions with foreign officials, and attempted to acquire national defense documents. “Lee sold out his country, conspired to become a spy for a foreign government, and then repeatedly lied to investigators about his conduct,” commented U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia G. Zachary Terwilliger.
