Reality Winner, 25, Charged with Leaking Russian Hacking Secrets to News Media


Victor has had top security clearance since the time she was hired earlier this year. Victor is being temporarily housed in the Lincoln County jail in Augusta, Georgia. Victor charged with leaking USA government secrets to a reporter poses no flight risk if she's released from pre-trial confinement, her parents said Wednesday, June 7, 2017, though they fear prosecutors will seek to use the case to send a tough message from the Trump administration.

Winner's mother expressed to Cooper that she was terrified that her daughter wasn't going to get a fair trial.

In the government's criminal complaint against victor, it says it was able to track her down as the leaker because The Intercept showed government officials a copy of the leaked document, which showed signs of having been folded.

Snowden, who first made headlines around the world in 2013 when he went public as the source of a massive trove of NSA documents detailing the agency's global "collect-it-all" surveillance dragnet, released a statement Tuesday evening saying that while much remains unknown about the details of the case, the Justice Department's decision to file charges under the "Espionage Act" is deeply troubling. Russian hackers attacked at least one USA voting software supplier days before the 2016 presidential election, acco.

However, he said that Trump did not directly order him stop investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. We know because James Comey finally confirmed one of the few details of this case that had somehow not leaked out.


The Intercept, which is not named in the DOJ documents, contacted the government on May 30 to authenticate the documents that was allegedly given to them by victor - who they credited as an anonymous source.

Victor has a hearing Thursday and her family and attorney are hoping she will be temporarily released.

Her stepfather, Gary Davis, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that regardless of her politics, she's still a patriot. "I don't know what she did when she went to work". She's never run away from anything in her life. "She is a good person". She has no record. She is being held in the Lincoln County Jail.

It only took about an hour after the classified document was published for the Justice Department to announce charges against the person that leaked it.

Some New Yorkers staged a show of support tonight for the woman accused of leaking classified information.

Shortly after graduating from high school in Kingsville, Texas, where she was a strong tennis and track and field competitor, she opted for military service. Her rank was senior airman, and her last duty title was cryptologic language analyst, according to the Air Force.

A lawyer said that victor has "no criminal history". Her mother said she speaks Pashto, Farsi and Dari. The job gave her top secret clearance, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday in federal court. While the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not identify the agency, the NSA in 2012 opened up a center in the Augusta area.

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

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'". However, by June 3, victor had already confessed, according to special agent Garrick, apparently admitting to removing the classified reports and mailing them to The Intercept.

Victor worked for a USA government contractor in Augusta. In January, she began teaching two yoga classes each week at Oh Yeah Yoga, a studio there, Annalisa Adams, the facility's owner, said Tuesday. Kip Grosenick reported from Augusta, Georgia.
