Convicted PRC spy gets only 3 months in prison

Three months at Club Fed seems kinda light to me.

I also want to know who the hell these "current and former intelligence and military officials" who urged the judge to give this treasonous fuck a light sentence are. I want to know why they aren't getting a complete rectal exam vetting and shakedown and why the ones who are "current" aren't currently UNEMPLOYED for vouching for a confessed SPY. Seriously, fuck these people, fuck'em in the ass and damn all these treasonous bastards to hell.
