The Department of Justice on Wednesday announced the arrest of a Defense Intelligence Agency official for allegedly leaking classified information to journalists, including one with whom he was apparently in a relationship.

Law enforcement officials arrested 30-year-old Henry Kyle Frese of Virginia as he arrived at work Tuesday morning and charged him with two counts of willful transmission of national defense information. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to charging documents filed with a federal court in Virginia, the information that Frese allegedly leaked involved a foreign country’s weapons system. The Justice Department would not identify the journalists, the outlets they worked for or the country that the leaked documents concerned.

The Hill reported that “one of the journalists apparently lived with and possibly dated Frese, according to the charging documents.”

A separate report by the Wall Street Journal identified the two journalists as follows:

The journalists aren’t named in the indictment, but they are identifiable as Amanda Macias, a national security reporter for CNBC, and Courtney Kube, a national security reporter for NBC. Public tweets cited in the court filings correspond to tweets sent by Ms. Macias and Ms. Kube in July of last year.
