What'd he do besides jump his case for speaking out of turn in front of the Admiral and apprehending him when he disobeyed orders and resisting arrest? It seemed to me he was rather patient with Barclay considering his...eccentric nature.
He told him his wormhole plan was done and that he was NOT TO SPEAk to the admiral about his idea. You know, the idea that lead to communication with Voyager.

Harkin was typical middle management, didn't want his ego burst or to have a subordinate show him up.
Actually, I thought Harkin was trying to protect Admiral Paris. Harkin probably thought Barclay was acting like a medium who pretended he could speak to the dead and was offering to get in touch with the admiral's son... for a price.
