[JURIST] Diplomat Donald Keyser has been arrested and charged with making a false statement to the FBI about a recent trip to Taiwan. Keyser served as the principal deputy assistant secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs before moving to a different position several weeks ago.
Keyser is also under investigation for improperly passing documents "derived from material to which Keyser had access as a result of his employment with the Department of State" to Taiwanese intelligence agents. Thursday's New York Times has more. The Washington Post has more on the investigation surrounding the passed documents.
