The 12-page indictment accuses Martin of removing classified information during a 20-year period when he was employed by seven different private companies working for parts of the U.S. intelligence community, then amassing the top-secret material in his Glen Burnie, Maryland, home.He was just keeping them "safe..."
Martin “flagrantly abused the trust placed in him by the government,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein of the District of Maryland.
Another official said contractors and insiders within the intelligence community could cause ruinous damage when they flouted strict secrecy regulations.
“Insider threats are a significant danger to our national security and we will continue to work relentlessly with our law enforcement and intelligence partners to identify, pursue and prosecute such individuals,” said acting Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord.
The indictment provided few details of the stolen documents. It listed 20 documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the U.S. Cyber Command and the National Reconnaissance Office. The documents bore labels of “secret,” “top secret” and “SCI,” which stands for sensitive compartmented information, for highly valuable secrets.
