Senior Justice Department officials announced late Thursday criminal charges against Senate Intelligence Committee's long-time director of security James Wolfe.
The indictment charges Wolfe with making false statements to the FBI and details how Wolfe passed classified information, including presumably information related to one-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page, to a series of media outlets, confirming long-standing suspicions of the career intelligence community's complicity in leaks. The three-count indictment charges Wolfe with separate instances of making false statements to the FBI, not directly charging him for leaking classified information, but appearing to detail how he did allegedly leaked classified information to reporters and then allegedly lied about it to the FBI.
The 11-page indictment does not name the reporters and does not name the person about whom classified information was leaked, but labels them as "Reporter #1," "Reporter #2," "Reporter #3," and "Reporter #4" as well as "MALE-1" respectively. It is presumed that "MALE-1" is Page, the ex-Trump aide, and "Reporter #2" is then-Buzzfeed News now New York Times reporter Ali Watkins.
Watkins broke the Carter Page angle of the "Russia investigation" back in April 2017 with a story called "A Former Trump Adviser Met With A Russian Spy." In it, Watkins claimed, "The revelation of Page's connection to Russian intelligence -- which occurred more than three years before his association with Trump -- is the most clearly documented contact to date between Russian intelligence and someone in Trump's orbit."
Based on accusations in the Wolfe indictment, it appears this scoop, that Page had been in contact with a Russian intelligence operative back in 2013, was based entirely on classified information Wolfe was privy to as a result of his position and which he allegedly leaked to Watkins.
