(Washington Times) The former top security officer for the Senate intelligence committee was arrested Thursday and charged with lying about leaks of classified information.
The indictment indicates James A. Wolfe leaked information to reporters on Trump campaign figure Carter Page.
The charges — three counts of lying to the FBI about contacts with reporters — are a black eye for the intelligence committee, some of whose members have been among the fiercest critics of Mr. Trump.
