A senior official working for the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) has been charged with leaking confidential financial reports on former Trump campaign advisers Paul Manafort, Richard Gates and others to a media outlet.

Prosecutors say that Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards photographed what are called suspicious activity reports, or SARS, and other sensitive government files and sent them to an unnamed reporter, in violation of U.S. law.
