    Radicalized Democrat Traitor to the United States Caught


    Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor charged by the U.S. Department of Justice for sending classified material to a news organization, poses in a picture posted to her Instagram account.

    WASHINGTON — An intelligence contractor was charged with sending a classified report about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election to the news media, the Justice Department announced Monday, the first criminal leak case under President Trump.

    The case showed the department’s willingness to crack down on leaks, as Mr. Trump has called for in complaining that they are undermining his administration. His grievances have contributed to a sometimes tense relationship with the intelligence agencies he now oversees.

    The Justice Department announced the case against the contractor, Reality Leigh Winner, 25, about an hour after the national-security news outlet The Intercept published the apparent document, a May 5 intelligence report from the National Security Agency.


    The report described two cyberattacks by Russia’s military intelligence unit, the G.R.U. — one in August against a company that sells voter registration-related software and another, a few days before the election, against 122 local election officials.

    The Intercept said the N.S.A. report had been submitted anonymously. But shortly after its article was published, the Justice Department said that the F.B.I. had arrested Ms. Winner at her house in Augusta, Georgia, on Saturday. It also said she had confessed to an agent that she had printed out a May 5 intelligence file and mailed it to an online news outlet.

    It was not immediately clear who is serving as the defense lawyer for Ms. Winner, who has been charged under the Espionage Act.

    An accompanying F.B.I. affidavit said she has worked for Pluribus International Corporation at a government facility in Georgia since Feb. 13. While it did not identify the agency or the facility, the N.S.A. uses Pluribus contractors and opened a branch facility in the suburbs outside Augusta in 2012.

    The F.B.I. affidavit said reporters for the news outlet, which it also did not name, had approached the N.S.A. with questions for their story and, in the course of that dialogue, provided a copy of the document in their possession. An analysis of the file showed it was a scan of a copy that had been creased or folded, the affidavit said, “suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space.”

    The N.S.A.’s auditing system showed that six people had printed out the report, including Ms. Winner. Investigators examined the computers of those six people and found that Ms. Winner had been in email contact with the news outlet, but the other five had not. In a statement, the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, praised the operation.

    “Releasing classified material without authorization threatens our nation’s security and undermines public faith in government,” he said. “People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation.”

    Espionage Act charges carry a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, although conventional leak cases have typically resulted in prison terms of one to three years.

    She was just a small fish in a very big pond. I hope that they can find some of the big leakers and put them in jail suits and behind bars. I am sure that both sides of the aisle are guilty-it's just how bad do the congressional leaders want to work to end this stupidity. It not only lets out secret information, it also endangers our security. Give her the max penalty!!!!

    I agree with max or more if more charges could be tacked on, like treason if at all possible. Maybe the IRS would like to know how much she was paid for leak so they could get her for not reporting the income to pay taxes on.
    The others should also get time for even copying the file. I do believe that in itself is a felony.

    Snowflake's Mom Weighs in on her TRAITOR Daughter...

    Alleged NSA Leaker's Mom: She's 'Scared' They Are 'Going to Make Her Disappear'

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — The family of an intelligence contractor who allegedly leaked a highly classified document about Russian interference in the U.S. election told NBC News that "she would not jeopardize anybody's safety."

    Reality Winner, a 25-year-old who worked at the National Security Agency, has been charged with providing the report to The Intercept, an online news organization. Winner's mother said her daughter was "terrified" when she returned to her Augusta home Saturday to find armed federal agents waiting for her.

    "Her words to me was that she was scared she was going to be ... they were going to make her disappear," mother Billie Davis-Winner said Tuesday.

    She added that her daughter would never put herself in a position where another person was at risk.

    "She would not jeopardize anybody's safety. She would not, I can tell you that for certainty," Winner-Davis said.

    "She loves children. She loves animals … She's not a threat to anyone. She's not a violent person." { YEA...AND LONG WALKS IN THE PRISON YARD...SNOWFLAKE }

    Winner-Davis said that despite the allegations she remains "a proud mom ... I have every reason to be proud of that girl."

    She added: "I can't ever call her a traitor or even believe that. No, that is not Reality. That's not her."

    "I fear that they're going to make an example out of her" SURE HOPE SO !!

    But during a briefing with reporters Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer warned that "any disclosure of classified or sensitive information can clearly threaten our national security."

    The Department of Justice first announced Winner's arrest Monday, barely an hour after The Intercept published an article about the NSA document concerning Russian hacking.

    The classified report alleged Russian hackers targeted a voter software company and more than 100 local election officials ahead of November's vote. It did not suggest these attempts affected the vote and Moscow has repeatedly denied the claims.

    The FBI arrested Winner and accused her of printing out the stolen report from the nearby NSA facility where she worked and emailing it to The Intercept last month.

    Her expertise was translating languages spoken in Afghanistan, her family said, and she served six years in the U.S. Air Force as a cryptologic language analyst.

    Gary Davis, her stepdad, told NBC News that she "served her country with distinction, and was commended by her commanding officer for her service in saving American lives, and in taking out enemy combatants contributing to the mission on the war on terror."

    He added: "To see her portrayed in the media as something other than a patriot that she is, is an insult to the service and an insult to every veteran who's served."

    The Department of Justice said Winner has admitted to the accusations. But she has not entered a plea, and on Tuesday her attorney, Titus Thomas Nichols, told The Associated Press that "if there is a confession, the government has not shown it to me."

    In her interview with NBC News, her mother said she has "difficulty believing that she actually did what they're saying that she did."

    FBI agents followed Winner up her driveway after she had been grocery shopping and took her to a back room of the house and kept her there, according to her mother's retelling of Saturday's arrest.

    "I'm in trouble," her mom recalls her saying in a phone call later that day.

    "She was terrified, she was scared," her mother said. "I don't know how many of them there were, but there were a lot and they were all armed."

    In addition to her work as a government contractor and service in the Air Force, Winner is a yoga instructor in her spare time and active on social media. On a Twitter handle believed to be hers, there's a post calling Trump an "orange fascist."

    The President has had harsh words for leakers in the past, calling Edward Snowden a "spy" and a "traitor" who deserves to be executed.

    "I am so scared. I am so scared," her mother said. "I fear that they're going to make an example out of her."

    She added: "I fear that there's anger from the top toward her and I fear that something bad is going to happen. I just... I hope that all of America is watching this so closely so that nothing happens."

    Winner has a hearing Thursday and her family and attorney are hoping she will be temporarily released. "She's not a threat in any way," her mom said. "She's not a flight risk."

    Until then, her one message for her daughter?

    "I love her. I love her with all my heart and being," she said. "I love her and I'm proud of her. And I will always be proud of her. I will always be here for her."


    I GOT A MESSAGE FOR HER... ROT IN HELL TRAITOR !!

    Her mom needs realize she doesn't know her daughter as well as she thinks she does. HMMM The apple doesn't fall far from the tree either momma. Her daughter was guided by some design from someone of hatred for Trump.
    I am guessing the mom and daughter probably voted for Killery also.

    I doubt that was the only doc she copied. Who knows what contacts she made overseas and passed info to? Same thing the Boston Bombers mother said how innocent her boys were.

    U.S. intelligence contractor heads to court on leak charges


    ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK...


    A U.S. intelligence contractor charged with leaking a classified National Security Agency report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is scheduled to appear at a detention hearing late Thursday afternoon in Augusta, Georgia.

    Reality Leigh Winner, 25, was indicted on Wednesday on charges that she removed classified material from a government facility in Georgia and handed it to a news agency while working as a contractor with Pluribus International Corp.

    Winner's attorney said she intends to plead not guilty, NBC News reported on Wednesday. She is the first person charged with leaking classified information to the media under the administration of President Donald Trump, who has vowed to crack down on leakers.

    The charges were announced less than an hour after The Intercept published a secret document from the NSA that provided technical details on what it said were Russian attempts to hack election officials and a voting machine firm before the presidential election in November.

    While the charges do not name the publication, two U.S. officials with knowledge of the case confirmed that Winner was charged with leaking the NSA report to The Intercept.

    If she is found guilty I would almost bet she will only get a slap on the wrist. It's about time the law was enforced rather than politics get out of jail card.

    She pled not guilty today and was held over without bail. Judge considered her a continuing national security threat when prosecutors produced that they discovered she had stolen info from an AF computer. They have not located the physical evidence of that but apparently she left some kind of trail in the computer that identified her as the bad actor. She also was identified as a Taliban and ISIS sight by writings on the Internet. just another girl next door according to her mother.

    HMMM No physical evidence..........except the report/leak which just happened to coincide with her trail left on the computer file. Geee imagine that, the file security was compromised by a government paid for worker. I guess she was into the file for translating purposes. I bet she got paid twice for her act. Once by those that wanted the info leaked and then by the media that she leaked the information to. Check her bank accounts or expensive recent buys. I bet there will be another paper trail there to prove her guilt. Such a tangled web is woven. She was far from being alone in this crime.

    You would think a person so knowledgeable with computers would know they themselves leave a trail. She should remember she herself could be taken out from the inside to cover any other trails she left. She better hope her contacts for her deed were done in person and not on a computer. Maybe she should ask Hillary about how to get rid of computer files and not go to jail for it.

    Remember Chelsey Manning? He/she leaked all kinds of information which damaged this country and was sent to jail. A lot of good that did because Obama ordered him to be released under presidential pardon and he is back out in the streets. What kind of damage could be be back up to?
