Former U.S. Senate staffer pleads not guilty to lying to FBI

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A former senior staff member of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee pleaded not guilty in federal court on Wednesday to charges he lied to the FBI about discussions with journalists.

Lawyers for James Wolfe, who served as the committee's director of security for three decades, said they would seek a court order prohibiting government officials, including President Donald Trump, from making public statements about the case. Prosecutors say Wolfe lied to FBI agents in December about his contacts with four reporters.
