Head of Security for Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Busted for Leaking to Buzzfeed Reporter, Who Was His... Much Younger Squeeze

 

The staffer, James Wolfe, was apparently leaking to up to three different reporters, mostly derogatory stuff about Carter Page.

Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page was the primary target of a Senate Select Intelligence Committee (SSIC) staffer indicted for lying about his contacts with reporters, according to an indictment released on Thursday.

James Wolfe, the former director of security for the SSIC panel, was in contact with at least three reporters at around the time they published articles about Page, an energy consultant who is a central player in the investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Wolfe, 57, is charged with lying to the FBI during a Dec. 15, 2017 interview about whether he knew the journalists and had contact with them on certain dates. In one case, Wolfe denied knowing a reporter with whom he had been in a romantic relationship for four years. He is also charged with lying about giving that reporter, Ali Watkins, information about Page. 

The indictment cites one message that Wolfe wrote in December to Watkins, a former BuzzFeed reporter who now works for The New York Times.


"I always tried to give you as much information that I could and to do the right thing with it so you could get that scoop before anyone else," Wolfe wrote to Watkins, whom he dated from December 2013 to December 2017.

 

Talk about pumping someone for information.
