Former Senate Intelligence Committee director indicted, arrested for lying to FBI

Quote
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.

"The Attorney General has stated that investigations and prosecutions of unauthorized disclosure of controlled information are a priority of the Department of Justice. The allegations in this indictment are doubly troubling as the false statements concern the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive and confidential information," Assistant Attorney General Demers said of Wolfe's arrest. "Those entrusted with sensitive information must discharge their duties with honesty and integrity, and that includes telling the truth to law enforcement."

OK, here's one that I've been asking for.

Gimme 10 more and I'll be back to feeling hopeful.

Make it Schiff and I'll bake a cake.
