New York Times Probing Reporter Ali Watkins’ History after Sexual 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. 

Adding to the intrigue, new accounts have also emerged claiming Watkins was approached last summer by a government official who knew about the relationship and tried to get her help tracking down leakers. 

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. Wolfe was indicted last week on three counts of lying to FBI agents and was accused of leaking information to the media. 

The Times said it is now looking into Watkins' involvement

"Yes, yes, and absolutely yes. There currently is no reliable screening process though and trying to not have it hijacked in some way is quite the challenge."
