“Jim Wolfe, a longtime former director of security at the Senate Intelligence Committee, was indicted and arrested Thursday night for giving false statements to FBI agents during their investigation into leaks of classified information to the media.

According to the Department of Justice, Wolfe lied to FBI agents back in 2017 “about his repeated contacts with three reporters, including through his use of encrypted messaging applications.”

Wolfe is also accused of making false statements about providing “non-public information related to matters occurring before the [Senate Intelligence Committee]” to two additional reporters.”

(…) “Earlier on Thursday, Wolfe was named in connection to the DOJ’s secret collection of phone and email records of a New York Times reporter with whom he had engaged in a 3-year-long romantic relationship.” (Read more: Washington Examiner, 6/07/2018)
