Former Intel Staffer James Wolfe
What a disgrace!
On Tuesday, prosecutors filed their sentencing memo seeking two years in prison for former Senate Intel staffer and serial leaker and liar, James Wolfe.
Former Intel Chief James Clapper, Chairman of the Senate Intel Committee Richard Burr (R-NC) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) vouched for James Wolfe and begged the judge for leniency.
James A. Wolfe, 57, was arrested in June of this year after the DOJ conducted an investigation into classified information leaks to reporters.
Wolfe repeatedly lied to investigators about his contacts with reporters and made false statements to the FBI.
The Justice Department also seized New York Times reporter, Ali Watkins years’ worth of phone and email records.
According to the NY Times, Ali Watkins was having a romantic relationship with the Senate Intel aide, Wolfe. Some of their communication back and forth took place before she was employed by The New York Times.

“Mr. Wolfe lied to FBI agents in a December 2017 interview in connection with the FBI’s probe of leaks of information regarding the activities of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (“SSCI”) to various reporters. It is a decision, along with his breaking his marital vows and violating his former employer’s rules regarding contacts with the media, that he deeply regrets—and the consequences of those failings will follow him for the rest of his life,” James Wolfe’s lawyer wrote in the memo.

“Knowing Jim as I do, I know this whole experience – and its exposure in the media – has been very traumatic for him already. I would hope the court would consider Jim’s long and faithful service, as well as what he has endured thus far – in sentencing him, and would recommend minimal confinement,” Clapper wrote to the judge.
Strange, we must have missed those letters Clapper and others wrote vouching for three-star General Mike Flynn.
It’s almost as if Clapper also leaked to James Wolfe and is afraid people will find out — why else would he be writing such a personal letter on his behalf?
Wolfe appears to have leaked information about the Carter Page FISA applications to the media as well.
It’s no surprise that Trump-haters such as Clapper, Feinstein and Richard Burr are vouching for him.
