Press Release

Buckley Sandler to vigorously defend James A. Wolfe

WASHINGTON, DC (June 13, 2018) — James A. Wolfe served as a dedicated public servant for 35 years, first serving his country as a decorated U.S. Army intelligence analyst, and then for most of his career as a Senate staff member. He was entrusted with the government’s most important classified secrets while working as the Director of Security for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for almost 30 years.

Mr. Wolfe never breached that trust.

Buckley Sandler will vigorously defend Mr. Wolfe against this unfair and unjustified prosecution.

There is absolutely no allegation in this case that Mr. Wolfe leaked classified information. This prosecution raises very substantial First Amendment and freedom of the press issues that will be addressed in court. Finally, our firm likely will be filing soon a motion seeking an Order from the Court prohibiting the government at all levels, including President Trump, from making improper and prejudicial statements regarding this case.
