An analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency has been charged with leaking top secret information about a foreign country’s weapons systems to two journalists, including one he was romantically involved with, according to an indictment unsealed on Wednesday.

Henry Kyle Frese, 30, was charged with two counts of the willful transmission of national defense information.

 

Frese accessed Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) computer systems in April 2018 to obtain information unrelated to his job about an unidentified country’s weapons capabilities, and provided it to the reporters, according to the indictment.

One of the reporters published eight articles based on leaks that Frese provided from five classified DIA reports, prosecutors alleged, according to the Department of Justice.

“Frese was caught red-handed disclosing sensitive national security information for personal gain,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers said in a statement.

The journalists are not identified in the indictment, but prosecutors said Frese shared an address with one of them for more than a year.

“It appears that they were involved in a romantic relationship for some or all of that period of time,” prosecutors said.
