From Fox News:
New York Times reporter Ali Watkins' past tweets are raising eyebrows after revelations she had a three-year romantic relationship with a Senate Intelligence Committee aide now accused by federal prosecutors of leaking sensitive information to journalists, including herself.
But in several tweets in September 2017, Watkins, while dating Wolfe and working for Politico, seemed to point the finger at attorneys for President Trump over various media disclosures.
It's unclear who was responsible for those specific leaks -- the tweets were posted about a month before a different reporter published the story on the Page subpoena. But the indictment strongly suggests Wolfe was a top source for committee stories and that Watkins was among the reporters who got information from Wolfe.
In another tweet, Watkins asked: "So on a scale of 1 to ethical, how does everyone feel about pulling a @RealZoeBarnes for story ideas? #TOTALLYKIDDING @HouseofCards."
The "House of Cards" tweets were posted months before prosecutors said her relationship with Wolfe began.As a 22-year-old senior at Temple University, Watkins also "helped McClatchy newspapers break a story related to the Senate Intelligence Committee," The Washington Post reports. "Wolfe was the committee's security director."
Temple boasted about Watkins's role in the scoop, at the time:This is the future of journalism!
