James A. Wolfe, a former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee, was arrested and indicted for allegedly lying to FBI agents who are investigating the ongoing media leaks about the sham DOJ investigation of “Trump Russia collusion,” which has so far produced no evidence.
Ironically, Wolfe was the committee’s security director for 29 years. His job was to ensure that leaks of classified intel do not occur. But a DOJ investigation suggests that Wolfe lied to the FBI and may have repeatedly leaked classified intel to the media.
Wolfe is not charged with leaking classified intel (yet), but of lying to the FBI, which is a federal crime punishable by five years in prison for each instance.
“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,” the DOJ revealed in a statement. “Wolfe is further alleged to have made false statements to the FBI about providing two reporters with non-public information.”
