Over the past few years, there have been hundreds of leaks, coming from within the intelligence agencies, to Establishment Media outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, NBC and their affiliates, and others, as a means to smear not only President Trump but political candidates who proved to be of conservative ideology! Now, as so many reporters have normalized the leaking of classified information for personal gain, it is now being done to promote personal gain against the interest of America’s National security! For example, 31-year-old Henry Kyle Frese, who worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency, has been arrested, charged, and has admitted to leaking top-secret classified information to a reporter, and as Frese put it, he did so…
“to help the journalist who contacted him via Twitter direct message because “he wanted to see the journalist progress.”
The Gateway Pundit is reporting that…
The Justice Department in October announced the arrest of 31-year-old Henry Kyle Frese, a (now former) Defense Intelligence Agency employee, for leaking to journalists.
Frese pleaded guilty to charges related to his disclosure of classified national defense information (NDI) to two journalists in 2018 and 2019, the DOJ announced on Thursday.
Frese faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison when sentenced on June 18, 2020, at 9:30 am according to the DOJ.
Henry Kyle Frese of Virginia, a far left radical, was hit with two counts of willful transmission of national defense information.
According to the DOJ, Frese lived with, and had a romantic relationship with one of the reporters he was transmitting top secret information to in 2018 and 2019.
Mr. Frese reportedly leaked classified information to Amanda Macias, a CNBC national security reporter
Frese gave Ms. Macias classified intelligence information that she and NBC News later used in reports on North Korea’s weapons systems, according to journalist Matthew Keys.
The indictment read…
“In or about mid-April to early May 2018, FRESE accessed an intelligence report unrelated to his job duties on multiple occasions, which contained NDI classified at the TOP SECRET/SCI level, which related to a certain foreign country’s weapons systems.”
John Demers, who is the Assistant Attorney General for National Security stated that…
“Frese violated the trust placed in him by the American people when he disclosed sensitive national security information for personal gain. He alerted our country’s adversaries to sensitive national defense information, putting the nation’s security at risk. The government takes these breaches seriously and will use all the resources at our disposal to apprehend and prosecute those who jeopardize the safety of this country and its citizens.”
G. Zachary Terwilliger, who is the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia added that…
“Henry Kyle Frese was entrusted with Top Secret information related to the national defense of our country. Frese violated that trust, the oath he swore to uphold, and engaged in felonious conduct at the expense of our country. This case should serve as a clear reminder to all of those similarly entrusted with National Defense Information that unilaterally disclosing such information for personal gain, or that of others, is not selfless or heroic, it is criminal.”
Robert Wells, who serves as the Acting Assistant Director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division added…
“Mr. Frese violated his sworn oath to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States by using his access to the United States’ most sensitive information and steal state secrets for nothing more than personal gain. The men and women of the FBI who investigated this case swore the same oath but unlike Mr. Frese, they chose to uphold it. I am proud of the work they did to hold Mr. Frese accountable for his actions.”
Sadly, Frese is only the tip of the iceberg, in regards to Intelligence Agents who are leaking classified information to reporters! The only problem…most of the leakers so far have been leaking as political hit-jobs against President Trump, in an effort to override the ‘will of the American people’! Unfortunately, those leakers are protected by the Deep State itself, including Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Eric Ciamarella, Alexander Vindman, and countless others!
