Senate Select Intel Staffer James Wolfe, the former director of security for the SSIC panel seems to have targeted Carter Page with his leaks.

He is to appear in court again on Tuesday in Washington. He is also charged with lying about having a relationship with reporter Ali Watkins, as well as giving her information about Carter Page.
