Ex-NSA Official Pleads Not Guilty to Helping Reporter

A former U.S. intelligence official accused of leaking secrets to the media pleaded not guilty during his first appearance in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

Attorneys for Thomas A. Drake, 53, a former official with the National Security Agency, requested that he be tried by a jury. U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett scheduled a trial for October.

Drake, of Glenwood, was accused in an indictment this month of sharing classified information with a reporter. The charges appear to stem from a series of Baltimore Sun articles in 2006 and 2007 that highlighted mismanagement and other problems within the spy agency. The government does not allege that Drake revealed secrets about the spy agency’s methods of intercepting e-mails and phone calls or its efforts to crack codes.
