Alleged NSA Leaker May Have Had Plans to Release More, Feds Say

Alleged NSA Leaker May Have Had Plans to Release More, Feds Say

She posted on Facebook three months ago that climate change is a more important issue than health care "since not poisoning an entire population seems to be more in line with "health" care, and not the disease care system that people voted for a soulless ginger orangutan to 'fix'".

The Justice Department announced on Monday that Reality Leigh Winner, who worked with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia, was arrested for "removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet".

Victor is set to go before US Magistrate Judge Brian Epps for a detention hearing Thursday in Augusta, Nichols said. He called her a "patriot" and said that if she actually did leak information to the press, "it needs to be balanced against what she has done in the past and how she has served this country".

According to Solari she told them she was "mad about what she had recently seen in the media" and she "wanted to set the facts right". Reporters gathered Tuesday outside Winner's small, red-brick home in a neighborhood dotted with overgrown yards and houses in disrepair.

Solari cautioned that prosecutors were not trying to link victor to terrorism.

Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis; stepfather, Gary Davis; and a friend testified in court.

"I know my daughter".

Davis said she received a commendation for aiding in the deaths of more than 100 enemy combatants and more than 250 enemy captures.

The indictment alleges that victor, a former Air Force linguist, leaked the confidential information in May 2017 while employed at private contractor Pluribus International.

According to to an affidavit obtained by Radar, FBI agent Justin Garrick interviewed victor, who admitted to "intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue", as well as sending the document to the publication. "She doesn't deserve that", Winner's mother told WSB-TV.

"Mainly she was concerned about her cat", Winner-Davis said. The news outlet reportedly reached out to the NSA and showed them the highly classified documents it received from victor to make sure they were authentic and wouldn't severely compromise national security.

A United States intelligence contractor accused of illegally leaking a classified report on Russian interference in USA elections to a media outlet pleaded not guilty on Thursday to an espionage offense, and a federal judge denied her request for bail.

On social media, victor mostly shared glimpses into her life far removed from politics - such as watching Dr.

The FBI said unauthorized disclosure of the secret document "could reasonably result in exceptionally grave damage to the national security", though the government has not alleged that victor sought to share the report with foreign agents. She didn't try to hide or scrub anything - including her contacts with The Intercept.

But Winner's Facebook page does mention reaching out to Sen.

In this highly digital world officials say it was a crease in a piece of paper that ultimately led the Federal Bureau of Investigation to accused leaker Reality Winner.

Nichols told CBS News that he hopes to have victor released on Bond.

The government believes those who knew victor best did not know an alternate side of her, who confessed to wanting to do harm to the nation through the release of classified documents. "The NSA go and check who printed this document around this time frame".

Victor was taken into custody last week.

Winner-Davis and her husband said they have spoken to Winner by telephone since her arrest and saw her briefly at a hearing Monday.
