Clapper asks for leniency for Senate Intel Committee source
[Daily Caller] Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper wrote a letter asking for leniency for the Senate Intelligence Committee’s former security director who pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about his contact with a reporter.

James Wolfe "lied to FBI agents in a December 2017 interview in connection with the FBI’s probe of leaks of information regarding the activities of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to various reporters," his lawyer wrote. "It is a decision, along with his breaking his marital vows and violating his former employer’s rules regarding contacts with the media, that he deeply regrets."

Clapper submitted a handwritten letter to the judge supporting Wolfe, saying "knowing Jim as I do, I know this whole experience ‐ and its exposure in the media ‐ has been very traumatic for him already. I would hope the court would consider his long and faithful service, as well as what he has endured so far ‐ in sentencing and would recommend minimal confinement."

Republican intelligence committee chairman Richard Burr and with Democratic ranking member Dianne Feinstein also wrote to "seek leniency in the sentencing of Mr. James Wolfe ... we do not seek to diminish the seriousness of the allegations against Jim, nor diminish the significance of misleading federal agents ... but we ask that the totality of his service and career be taken into consideration."
We've simply got to speak up for our source Jim, what if he decides to start talking ?

#1 ....has been very traumatic for him already. I would hope the court would consider his long and faithful service

"Long and faithful service" to whom.... the Senate Intelligence Committee or the CIA ?

#2 If it was up to me, I'd write back and say "We were going to draw and quarter him. If you'd be interested, you could take half his punishment and he'd only have to take the other half..."

#3 Also, this guy was dropping classified stuff to his punch via pillow talk. Probably with ulterior motives. We aren't talking about putting lap dances on the company credit card.

#4 No comment from Select Committee on Intelligence, Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

CIA admits to spying on Senate staffers

Evidently, all has been forgiven or she agreed to the private intelligence updates and special compensation package.
