New York Times probing reporter Ali Watkins’ history after relationship with source revealed

New York Times probing reporter Ali Watkins’ history after relationship with source revealed

The New York Times is reviewing the work history of reporter Ali Watkins after her email and phone records were seized by prosecutors as part of a federal leak investigation -- and her romantic relationship with a former Senate aide at the center of the probe was made public.

Watkins, who joined the Times in December, had a romantic relationship with then-Senate Intelligence Committee aide James A. Wolfe, 57, that ended last year.

But before joining the New York Times, the 26-year-old reporter covered the Senate Intelligence Committee for Politico, BuzzFeed News, the Huffington Post and McClatchy (as an intern).

In December of last year – only days before Watkins began her job with The New York Times – she also was approached by FBI agents and questioned about her relationship with Wolfe.

Wolfe, the longtime director of security for the Senate intelligence committee, made a brief appearance in federal court in Baltimore last Friday, where he was released from custody and ordered to appear at the federal courthouse in Washington on Wednesday for his arraignment.
