 Air Force Employee Indicted For Giving Classified Intel on Ukraine to Woman on Foreign Dating App

A 63-year-old Air Force employee was indicted for giving classified information on Ukraine to a person claiming to be a woman on a foreign dating app from February 2022 until April 2022.

David Franklin Slater of Nebraska, a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel, transmitted the classified material to a ‘woman’ who referred to him as her “secret informant love” and her “secret agent.”
