Former Air War College Professor Pleads Guilty to Lying about Contacts with China
Federal prosecutors say a longtime professor at Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base has pleaded guilty to lying to an investigator about his contacts with a Chinese official.
The Justice Department says 69-year-old Xiaoming Zhang faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to making false statements to a federal agent.
Zhang is a naturalized citizen of Chinese descent. Prosecutors say he concealed years of meetings and emails with a Chinese official because he knew the relationship was improper.
