Revealing the identity of a covert CIA officer appears to be in violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982, codified as 50 U.S.C., Section 421 (*):

Protection of identities of certain United States undercover intelligence officers, agents, informants, and sources:

(a) Disclosure of information by persons having or having had access to classified information that identifies covert agent

Whoever, having or having had authorized access to classified information that identifies a covert agent, intentionally discloses any information identifying such covert agent to any individual not authorized to receive classified information, knowing that the information disclosed so identifies such covert agent and that the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal such covert agent's intelligence relationship to the United States, shall be fined not more than $50,000 or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
