A former FBI explosives expert has been charged with leaking the classified information about an upgraded underwear bomb involved in a foiled terrorist plot in Yemen.
The leak led to a second controversy as it was revealed that the Attorney General’s office seized the Associated Press’ phone records when they were trying to discover the reporter’s source.
Donald Sachtleben has plead guilty of revealing the information. He was also charged with distributing child pornography and now faces a total of 11 years and eight months behind bars for the two crimes.
