Parents insist accused leaker not a flight risk

Facebook

Not long after top-secret documents from the National Security Agency made their way onto the Internet news site The Intercept on Monday, the Justice Department arrested NSA contractor Reality Winner.

In May, Winner is accused of printing and improperly removing classified intelligence documents, which contained secret national defense information from the NSA, and mailing it to The Intercept.

Victor was booked Saturday at around 8 p.m., according to her arrest report, but the Justice Department didn't announce that she had been taken into custody until Monday - barely an hour after The Intercept published its report.

During the search, victor surprisingly agreed to talk with agents.

Titus Nichols said victor hopes to be released on bond Thursday.

Channel 2's Nicole Carr was invited into Winner's home by her parents to see the interrogation room.

That will not bode well for victor.

A federal contractor has been arrested following the leak of a classified intelligence report that suggests Russian hackers attacked at least one us voting software supplier days before last year's presidential election.

Federal investigators responding to information from a reporter with The Intercept last month focused their search on employees at Pluribus International Corp.in Augusta. The report did not show any evidence the hack affected any votes.

The documents reportedly detail that the NSA believes Russian military intelligence carried out a cyber attack, which compromised a USA voting software supplier days before the presidential election.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the pages appeared "folded and/or creased, suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space". "The NSA go and check who printed this document around this time frame".

Then, the federal agents discovered she had email contact with The Intercept.




Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Golari painted a picture of another side of victor, and said "some of the information is downright frightening".

She is the first person to be criminally charged with leaking classified information under the Trump administration, which has vowed to crack down on leaks. Her stepfather Gary Davis noted that she served six years in the Air Force, provided real-time translation to Americans on field missions, and received a commendation for aiding in the death of more than 100 enemy combatants and the capture of another 250 combatants.

CNN's Nick Valencia reported from Augusta, Georgia, and Steve Almasy reported from Atlanta.

"The audit did not reveal that any of the other individuals had e-mail contact with the News Outlet". This individual works for a contractor for the U.S. Government (the "Contractor").

►BACKGROUND | Who is Reality Leigh Winner?

Nichols defended Winner's integrity in an article about him in the Fulton County Daily Report. The Reporter took pictures of the documents and sent them to the Contractor. That's why it's extremely important to properly handle your documents.

USA intelligence agencies declined to comment.

Media reports say the father of NBA basketball player Enes Kanter has been released from police custody in Turkey, where he was detained as part of an investigation into alleged links to USA -based cleric Fethullah Gulen.

It's pretty creepy when you think about the fact that everything you print can be traced back to you. Victor was one of these six individuals.

Talk about leaving a trail of breadcrumbs right to your door. "She doesn't deserve that", Winner's mother Billie Winner-Davis told WSB-TV.
