James A. Wolfe, a former staffer for the Senate Intelligence Committee, has been indicted and arrested on three counts of making false statements to the FBI.

Why it matters: Investigators used a personal relationship Wolfe previously had with a reporter, as well as her phone records, to allege he leaked information to the media and lied to investigators about it.
