Defense official arrested for leaking information to journalists

Source: The Hill (with apologies)

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


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


That's all there is. No more at link: https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/465040-defense-official-arrested-for-leaking-information-to-journalists?__twitter_impression=true

My first thought: I hope this wasn't a leaker caught in the act of trying to help America. DOJ cracked down on him hard and fast.

1. Not a whistleblower as defined by law.

That seems clear from what is written. Members of the military handing over documents to journalists should be "cracked down on fast."
