Woman charged with top-secret leak denied bond

The federal contractor accused of leaking classified information to an online news outlet regarding a 2016 Russian military intelligence cyberattack complained about the Trump administration and posted about leaks on what appears to be her public Twitter account. Before she was charged with leaking USA government secrets, Reality Leigh Winner shared sometimes scathing opinions on President Donald Trump and his policies for the whole world to see. "But she's now the poster child for every bad thing that happens, and the government is going to prosecute her as if she's the number one threat to national security, and she's not", Winner's stepfather, Gary Davis, said.

Winner's mother and stepfather told the judge she had no criminal history and they would use their 20-acre home in Kingsville, Texas, to finance her bond with confidence she would never run. There were no records of victor misbehaving or receiving disciplinary action when she served the military.

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.

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.

Reality Winner has been charged with sending classified material to a news organization.

Winner's family made the case for her release in several media interviews. "There's no reason to hold her". She is an Air Force Veteran who speaks three other languages: Dari, Farsi, and Pashto.

Iran qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup
Iran, managed by former Real Madrid and Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz since 2011, tops Group A of Asian qualifying. It is the first time Iran has qualified for consecutive World Cups, and will be its fifth appearance in total.

Victor is a former Air Force linguist who now works as a US government contractor.

Victor was arrested Saturday night and taken into custody at a county jail in Lincoln County, Georgia, where she's awaiting a detention hearing scheduled for Thursday.

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

"This is a 25-year-old girl who served her country with admiration and distinction".

Victor had served in the U.S. Air Force from 2010 to 2016, leaving as a senior airman. But the NSA has operated a $286 million complex in Augusta since 2012. Victor was arrested at her home on Saturday and on Wednesday she will go before a federal judge for a bond hearing. "I'm terrified for her right now because of the news, the climate, the social media".

The NSA document in question provided technical details on what it said were Russian attempts to hack election officials in the United States and a voting-machine firm before the presidential election in November, two USA officials with knowledge of the case have confirmed to Reuters. The report, which was published online by The Intercept, does not say whether the hacking had any effect on election results.
