A person who learns of the identity of a covert agent through a “pattern of

activities intended to identify and expose covert agents” and discloses the identity to

any individual not authorized access to classified information, with reason to believe

that such activities would impair U.S. foreign intelligence efforts, is subject to a fine

or imprisonment for a term of not more than three years. To be convicted, a violator

must have knowledge that the information identifies a covert agent whose identity

the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal.
