Defense Intelligence Agency analyst charged with leaking to journalists
The 30-year-old employee appeared to be in a romantic relationship with one of the journalists.
An employee of the Defense Intelligence Agency has been arrested and accused of leaking classified government information to two journalists, the Justice Department announced on Wednesday.
Henry Kyle Frese, a 30-year-old counterterrorism analyst for the agency, was arrested on Wednesday morning as he arrived to work, and has been charged with two counts of willful transmission of national defense information.
According to the indictment unsealed in the Eastern District of Virginia, Frese accessed multiple intelligence reports unrelated to his duties there with classifications ranging from secret to top secret, and provided information from those reports to both journalists. Law enforcement received permission to surveil Frese's phone, and intercepted phone calls and texts between Frese and the reporters in which the classified information was referenced.
"Frese was caught red-handed disclosing sensitive national security information for personal gain,” John Demers, assistant attorney general for national security, said in a news release announcing the charges.
Between mid-April and early May 2018, according to the indictment, Frese allegedly accessed classified intelligence reports, and provided top secret information relating to the capabilities of a certain foreign country's weapons systems to one journalist for a national media outlet with whom he appeared to have a relationship. He also provided information to a second journalist from a second outlet publicly affiliated with the first. Prosecutors allege that Frese then re-tweeted a link to one of the published news reports containing the classified information he provided.
