Reality Winner, Alleged NSA Leaker, Will Plead Not Guilty, Lawyer Says

NSA's alleged leaker got tripped up by a secret printer feature

NSA's alleged leaker got tripped up by a secret printer feature

A young woman accused of leaking US government secrets to a reporter was indicted by a federal grand jury before she pleaded not guilty at a court hearing Thursday to determine whether she must remain jailed pending a trial.

"On or about May 24, 2017, a reporter for the News Outlet (the "Reporter") contacted another U.S. Government Agency affiliate with whom he has a prior relationship. And this makes it look like the government is smaller than it actually is", Clarke told ABC News.

- Victor is a federal contractor with top secret security clearance. She served six years in the Air Force before she moved to Georgia early this year, according to her mother, Billie Winner-Davis. That contractor, in turn, alerted the NSA. "Because the NSA logs all printing jobs on its printers, it can use this to match up precisely who printed the document".

The hackers are believed to have then used data from that operation to create a new email account to launch a spear-phishing campaign targeting USA local government organizations, the document said.

And there was a notation in one notebook, Solari said in which victor purportedly wrote, "I want to burn the White House down".

Teheran attacks mastermind killed - Iranian minister
The U.S. statement of solidarity with the attack's victims is notable because of the deep distrust between the U.S. and Iran. Iran has a sizeable Sunni population along its restive borders with Iraq and Pakistan from which IS is hoping to recruit.

"Whether that's a jest or not, it still concerns me", Epps said.

From her Facebook page Jim Hoft reports Reality likes: Animal Rights, The Daily Show, Bill Maher, Michael Moore and the Trump bashing "Trump Draws" Facebook page.

She's an Air Force veteran and works for a defense contractor.

The more pressing problem, De said, is a political one.

"A contractor, a federal employee can not just take it upon themselves to bypass the classification system", Chaffetz said. "We're in an environment where the subject of Russian election interference has become politically toxic, and we should worry about both leaks that are politically motivated and the prosecutions of leaks that are politically motivated".

Vast Wildfire Kills 57 in Portugal
Nearly 24 hours after the deaths on Saturday night, fires were still churning across the forested hillsides of central Portugal . The wildfire raged across central Portugal , with authorities saying 61 have been killed so far and 59 more injured.

The FBI says victor was working as a government contractor last month when she copied a classified intelligence report containing top-secret information and mailed it to a reporter.

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. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari told the judge victor had written in a notebook: "I want to burn the White House Down. find somewhere in Kurdistan to live".

The mother and stepfather of the NSA contractor who reportedly admitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation she leaked classified information from the Trump administration say their daughter is a "patriot".

The Intercept contacted NSA and the national intelligence director's office about the document and both agencies asked that it not be published. The website stated that it was "important to keep in mind" that the complaint and affidavit contain "unproven assertions". She could also face a fine of up to $250,000. Victor remained locked up Tuesday, June 6 on federal charges that she made copies of classified documents containing top-secret material and mailed them to an online news organization. However, it shows no evidence that the Russian cyberattacks directly altered any votes.

Since the document was leaked, the National Association for the Secretaries of State, which oversees elections and voting infrastructure, has requested a briefing with Department of Homeland Security. "It's not unusual to know them".

Champions Trophy triumph helps Pakistan surge to 6th spot in ODI Rankings
India had three players in batsmen Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, together with seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, in the ICC team. The whole team deserves to celebrate well beyond the Eid festival next week as the players richly deserve their victory.

WikiLeaks has offered up to $10,000 for information about the reporter whose actions alledgedly led to the arrest of an NSA employee. He called her a "patriot" and said that if she actually did leak information to the press, "it needs to be balanced against what she has done in the past and how she has served this country".
