Senate Staffer Arrested in Leak Probe Was In Bed With the Media—Literally

Daytime television has nothing on the soap opera that is Washington, DC.

Things took a serious turn in the ongoing saga of damaging leaks that have plagued the Trump administration since day…

A former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee -- who was in charge of maintaining all classified information from the Executive Office to the panel -- was indicted for allegedly giving false statements to FBI agents looking into possible leaks to reporters, the Justice Department announced Thursday night.

James A. Wolfe, 58, served as the panel's security director for 29 years, according to the feds.

Wolfe lied to the FBI in December 2017 about contacts he had with three reporters, the indictment read. He also allegedly lied about giving two reporters non-public information about committee matters.
