In the age of Impeachment, leakers are doing everything in their power to expose President Trump for something. The problem? Everything that has surfaces leads to a dead-end. This time, the leaker is heading to prison!
A former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) employee pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to leaking classified intelligence information to two reporters. Henry Kyle Frese, 31, of Alexandria, Va., was a counterterrorism analyst from February 2018 to October 2019 and held top-secret security clearance. Between the spring and summer of 2018, a reporter published eight articles containing classified information related to the capabilities of certain foreign countries’ weapons systems, according to court documents cited in a press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ).

According to court documents, Frese and the reporter lives together from January 2018 to November 2018. The reporter then went on to introduce Frese to another reporter whom he begins texting and speaking with over the phone several times after the first initial meeting, according to the DOJ.
On at least 30 separate occasions in 2018, Frese conducted searches on classified government systems for information regarding the classified topics he had discussed with both reporters. On multiple occasions in 2018 and 2019, Frese conducted searches on classified government systems because of specific requests for information. VIA Fox News
Frese KNEW what he was doing was wrong. He was aware the information was classified, and yet he still leaked the information to the reporters who then published it to the public. “Frese violated the trust placed in him by the American people when he disclosed sensitive national security information for personal gain,” said Assistant AG for National Security John Demers. “He alerted our country’s adversaries to sensitive national defense information, putting the nation’s security at risk.”
Frese pled guilty. He is facing up to 10 years in prison for the willful transmission of top-secret data. He will probably serve 4 and walk free. That is the way our justice system works, however with President Trump running D.C the little shit might stay in Prison!
