Intelligence Industry Contractor Reality Winner Accused Of Leaking NSA Documents Pleads Not Guilty

The details in the case suggest that she is the source for the Intercept's report on Monday about a May 5 NSA intelligence report that describes two cyberattacks carried out by Russian government hackers against a USA voting software supplier before the 2016 election.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps denied bond Thursday for 25-year-old Reality Winner.

Garrick's affidavit said he interviewed victor at her home Saturday and she "admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue" and mailing it to the news outlet.

Winner's attorney, Titus Thomas Nichols, declined to confirm whether she is accused of leaking the NSA report received by The Intercept. Winner, is being held for federal authorities at the Lincoln County, Ga., jail.

The 25-year-old's parents say they haven't talked with her much, but they know if she did released classified materials, she's ready to pay the price. "The NSA report, dated May 5, provides details of a 2016 Russian military intelligence cyberattack on a USA voting software supplier, though there is no evidence that any votes were affected by the hack", CNN reports.

Investigators say they were able to track victor by observing that the document leaked to The Intercept appeared to be folded, which led them to believe it had been printed out.

Victor was taken into custody Saturday by federal agents who executed a search warrant at her home.


The Intercept published a report containing the highly classified NSA document. She could face up to a 10-year sentence. She didn't try to hide or scrub anything - including her contacts with The Intercept.

Solari argued that victor isn't the upstanding young woman her parents believe her to be.

"She served her country, she is a veteran", her stepfather, Gary Davis, told Cooper.

According to the criminal complaint, victor admitted to printing the document with the knowledge that it was classified information as well as mailing it to the news outlet. "Her words to me were that she was really scared that they would make her disappear", Davis said.

All of her electronic devices have been seized, she no longer has access to any National Security Agency information, and her passport was seized, he said. The prosecutor said victor also had photos of the leaked document on her phone.

The Intercept has come under criticism in the last few days for exposing its anonymous source by showing the government a copy of the leaked report. Davis said she became a linguist, speaking Arabic and Farsi, and spent four years assigned to the NSA at Fort Mead, Maryland.

Solari countered that Winner's political agenda mattered more to her than her oath to protect secrets entrusted to her, adding that she might be tempted to flee if further charges were brought in the continuing investigation.
