The following article, Defense Intel Agency Worker Arrested for Leaking Top Secret Info to NBC Reporter He Was Dating, was first published on Flag And Cross.

When you do dumb things, you have to be prepared to suffer the consequences. Unless, of course, you’re a Clinton or a Democrat. If that’s the case, then there’s a good chance you’ll skate.

#BREAKING: Source at NBC News with knowledge of matter says @amanda_m_macias has been suspended following arrest of former love interest and purported source Henry Frese, a defense intelligence analyst accused of leaking to her. Suspension “procedural,” not discipliary.
