DoJ using the Espionage Act to prosecute whistleblowers

From today's NYT.  Here is an excerpt:
The Espionage Act, enacted back in 1917 to punish those who gave aid to our enemies, was used three times in all the prior administrations to bring cases against government officials accused of providing classified information to the media.  It has been used six times since the current president took office.
