Alleged Augusta leaker's parents fear Trump will be tough on case

10 June 2017

She is accused of revealing classified information, used as the basis for an article published Monday by The Intercept, which detailed a classified National Security Agency memo.

The charge, willful retention and transmission of national defense information, could bring victor up to 10 years in prison. "Approximately a few days later, victor unlawfully transmitted by mail the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet".

Winner's defense attorney, Titus Thomas Nichols, would not confirm whether she was being charged with leaking the NSA report cited by The Intercept.

Victor has been jailed in Lincoln County, Ga., since her arrest.

Julian Assange - founder of WikiLeaks - released a statement calling for public support for victor, saying she is a young woman "accused of courage in trying to help us know".

Reality Leigh Winner is the name of the 25-year-old contractor for the National Security Agency who is accused of leaking a classified document about Russian hacking to the press.

Analysts Recommendations Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (INO)
The current share price indicates that stock is -29.49% away from its one year high and is moving 40.48% ahead of its 52-week low. Stoneridge Investment Partners LLC increased its position in shares of Inovio Pharmaceuticals by 0.8% in the first quarter.

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.

It's the same charge victor was accused of when the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested her Saturday at her home in Augusta, Georgia.

The document that victor allegedly leaked was a report detailing attempts by hackers from Russian military intelligence to penetrate a company that sells voter registration software as well as local election officials.

The charge carries a potential penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.

They said they knew victor to be a selfless and dedicated person, who aims to help her community as well as the people she had worked with as a linguist throughout her career and that they believed Winner's case was being exaggerated.

The Intercept provided the U.S. government agency with a copy of the document, according to the complaint.

USA intel chiefs 'never felt pressured to intervene' with Russian Federation probe
Mark Warner (D-Va.) asked whether Rogers had been pressured to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation to back off Flynn . In initial statements and interviews, the White House said the president had acted on the recommendation of Rosenstein.

But a USA judge at a hearing today will weigh the risks of freeing Reality Winner, a former air force linguist with an otherwise unblemished record, pending trial.

She is expecting to be released on bond Thursday. When it comes to stealing and leaking classified information, Reality Winner may be a rank amateur when compared to someone like Edward Snowden, who turned this kind of theft into an art form.

Her mother has said victor was a specialist in Pashto, Farsi and Dari, languages spoken in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. He says she has never run away from anything and there's no reason to hold her. Investigators found handmade entries at her home during a raid, that said "I want to burn the White House down.find somewhere in Kurdistan to live".

Nichols, her attorney, said his client has "just been caught in the middle of something bigger than her".

Victor and those who share her view that Trump should be thrown out of office have every right to their opinions. They would pledge their home and the 20 acres of land they own as security for Winner's bond. "Some may try to defend victor, but they will have a hard time explaining her use of "#NeverMyPresident" and "#Resist" on Facebook. "The government is scraping and clawing to build a mountain out of a molehill". The other major consideration is whether or not she presents any type of danger to the community, " Tarver said.
