Henry Kyle Frese repeatedly leaked classified information according to the DOJ.
Just The News: A former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) analyst who repeatedly divulged classified information to journalists was sentenced Thursday to 30 months in prison.
Henry Kyle Frese, a counterterrorism analyst from February 2018 to October 2019 before he was arrested, apologized to a federal judge in Alexandria, Va., for his conduct and said his motive for leaking was to advance relationships, including one with a reporter whom he was dating at the time.
“It was never for personal gain or out of anger. It was never for political reasons,” said Frese, who previously pleaded guilty to leaking national secrets to two journalists and a consultant. “At the time, I thought my reasons were important.
“Looking back, I’m embarrassed at how foolish and weak they were,” he said, according to The Washington Post. more
