Can confirm based on public records and information contained in the court records: The journalist defense employee Henry K. Frese is accused of leaking classified information to is @amanda_m_macias, a CNBC national security reporter. The affiliated news organization is NBC News.
@amanda_m_macias Henry K. Frese is accused of giving @amanda_m_macias classified intelligence information that Macias and NBC News later used in reports on North Korea's weapons systems in 2018.
@amanda_m_macias Frese is also accused of leaking information to @ckubenbc, a NBC News reporter who published a series of stories on North Korea based on intelligence leaks in 2018, including this one: nbcnews.to/2LZxZIe
@amanda_m_macias @ckubeNBC Henry K. Frese, the former intelligence employee arrested on suspicion of leaking information to journalists, has a Twitter account. He goes by the name "Kyle Frese." @HKFrese
@amanda_m_macias @ckubeNBC @HKFrese Court records say Henry K. Frese was following on Twitter the journalist he gave classified info to and was romatically involved with. I identified the reporter as CNBC journalist @amanda_m_macias earlier today; info on their accounts checks out.
#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.
The source who told me this works for NBC News but didn’t want to be identified otherwise because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Worth noting @amanda_m_macias is a CNBC journalist. CNBC and NBC News are affiliate orgs but have separate employees.
*disciplinary. It’s hard tweeting from a phone when you have big thumbs.
Just yesterday...
Well this is unfortunate.
