Near the end of her tenure as Secretary of State, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, Philippe Reines, claimed in emails to colleagues and journalists covering the State Department that James Rosen, the 48-year-old chief Washington correspondent at Fox News, had been removed from his post at the agency over allegations of sexual harassment. In one such email, dated January 2013 and addressed to a CNN producer and another State Department staffer, Reines, then serving as a deputy assistant secretary of state, wrote, “Fox has had nobody assigned to State for the last two years after they pulled James Rosen for sexual harassment.”

Ex-State Department official Stephen Jin-Woo Kim will plead guilty for leaking classified documents about North Korea’s nuclear program to Fox News reporter James Rosen. The Department of Justice, which reportedly spied on Rosen in the course of investigating the leak, agreed to a 13-month prison term for Kim.
