A judge has scheduled a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court to determine whether to allow victor to be released on bond pending trial. "The same is true of the FBI's claims about how it came to arrest victor", the statement said.

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

Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told the court her daughter had never been in any trouble and was at the top of her class throughout her school days. "She was not expecting any of this".

Winner's lawyer told Martin that during today's hearing, he plans to request that she be released on bond pending trial.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, has been charged with sending the news media a classified government report about Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"On or about May 9, victor printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency, and unlawfully retained it".

Jake Swearingen, a technology writer for New York Magazine, said victor made her own missteps by printing the documents in a way that could be tracked and mailing them to The Intercept.

Recently, reports have also surfaced that victor had ties to the certain Muslim civil rights' groups and was also an active member of the "Resistance" movement.

Neither prosecutors nor Winner's parents have identified the government agency where she worked at the time of her arrest. Whether she saved documents on the thumb drive, or its current location, remains unknown. "People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation", Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later said in a statement. She also revealed that she spoken to her after her arrest. "They say they were able to narrow down the source using the unique "microdots" in the printout, which identify the source printer, as well as the fact that victor had been in email contact with a news outlet, presumed to be The Intercept".

In her spare time, victor lifted weights and taught the occasional yoga class. Stepdad Gary Davis, meanwhile, says she served in the military with distinction, and "to see her portrayed in the media as something other than [the] patriot that she is, is an insult to the service and an insult to every veteran who's served".

"She's going to be made an example of". In a phone call to her sister, victor said she was willing to use the "pretty white girl" in court and that if she didn't get bond would go nuclear with the media, Golari said.
