The Wall Street Journal: Longtime Senate staffer indicted, reporter’s records seized in leak probe

A veteran Senate staffer has been indicted as part of a probe related to the unauthorized disclosure of classified information that has also obtained the records of a New York Times reporter.

James A. Wolfe, the longtime head of security of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was arrested late Thursday, federal prosecutors said. Wolfe was indicted on charges of “making false statements to special agents of the FBI during the course of an investigation into the unlawful disclosure of classified information,” prosecutors said in a statement late Thursday.

“Wolfe is alleged to have lied to FBI agents in December 2017 about his repeated contacts with three reporters, including through his use of encrypted messaging applications,” prosecutors said.
