NSA Contractor Accused of Leaking Information Makes Her Plea in Federal Court

Published

on

Reality Winner, the former intelligence analyst and Air Force veteran busted for leaking secrets to the press appeared in Federal District Court in Augusta, Georgia where she pleaded guilty under the Espionage Act.

Part of the deal Winner arranged with prosecutors includes a 63 month prison sentence for sharing a classified report concerning Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election with journalists.

Online news site The Intercept published a copy of the report on June 5 of last year, the same day as Winner’s arrest. Prosecutors allege that Winner was the source of the leak, and say she had been “mad about some things she had seen in the media, and she wanted to set the facts right.”

Winner, who has been jailed since her arrest last June, told Chief Judge J. Randal Hall, “All of my actions I did willfully, meaning I did so of my own free will.” She was pursued by the Department of Justice under the Espionage Act.

Billie Winner-Davis, mother of the accused, said on Tuesday, “They’re just coming down on her so tough. I can only think that it’s because she was the very first one: the one they wanted to make an example out of, the one they wanted to nail to the door as a message to others.”

But Ms. Winner-Davis also conceded that her daughter “wouldn’t have made this decision if she wasn’t ready to accept the consequences and to accept responsibility.”

The former NSA contractor’s mother further criticized the law under which her daughter was prosecuted, saying, “It’s harsh, it’s outdated, it needs to be reformed. I wanted to fight the Espionage Act. Reality Winner, I don’t want her name to go down as being someone in history who betrayed or hurt her country.”

Reality Winner was honorably discharged from the Air Force back in 2016 and took a position with the NSA contractor Pluribus International. At that time she held a top secret security clearance and spoke fluent Arabic and Farsi.

This young woman should’ve set aside her personal politics and followed the law, keeping this information classified, going through the proper chain of command if there were things she was concerned about.

Instead, she chose an illegal and dangerous path, one that comes with hefty consequences. Hopefully she learns her lesson.

WATCH: Antifa Radicals Get Violent At Portland Protest, Attack & Pepper Spray Journalist (Videos)

HORRIBLE!

It’s no wonder President Trump is considering designating Antifa a domestic terror organization. The group has one goal: to impose their will by any means necessary in order to silence conservatives. That would be fascism, funny enough. Check out what’s currently happening in Portland… Independent journalist @Muffinpan503 was attacked & pepper sprayed. A woman tries to calm the angry shirtless man following him but is told to mind her own business as a white person. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162793066022858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162793066022858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F “I didn’t come to talk, I came to bring it out.” Things are getting tense at the antifa protest. Someone hit a man’s microphone to the ground. I recognize this shirtless man from Seattle last year at another antifa protest. He came up to me and said, “Death is coming.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162790907050991616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162790907050991616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F A black man praises Jesus on a bullhorn. The shirtless protester yells at him: “Ain’t no f—ing white Jesus going to save the black man from the white man’s oppression, uncle Tom.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162797976823013376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162797976823013376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-antifa-is-already-attacking-journalists-in-portland-protest%2F More on Portland, via Guardian: As Portland prepared for what may be one of the biggest political demonstrations of the US summer, which authorities expected would lead to violence, Donald Trump threw into the mix a characteristically explosive tweet. “Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR’,” the president wrote from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday morning. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!” “Antifa” is a collective term for a loose affiliation of anti-fascist groups. Such counter-protesters have clashed with far right activists in the Oregon city throughout the Trump era, some of them wearing “black bloc” attire and face masks. Stay tuned for more…

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…
