No bond for woman accused of leaking top-secret documents

Reality Winner, 25, Charged with Leaking Russian Hacking Secrets to News Media

Like so many people her age, she documented it on social media, posting about the little resort where she stayed, the banana pancakes she enjoyed and a moment of reflection she had while sitting in the Mayan pyramids.

- She was raised in Kingsville, Texas, and served in the Air Force in Columbia, Maryland. "She's a good person with no criminal history who is caught in a political whirlwind".

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. But The Washington Post's Devlin Barrett reported that the case centers on an intelligence document that describes a 2016 Russian cyberattack on a company that provides technical support to state voting agencies and a subsequent email hacking scheme aimed at local election officials. In legal documents, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent stated that victor had admitted to printing the classified information and mailing it to an online news outlet.

Many officials criticized the leak.

Titus Nichols said victor hopes to be released on bond Thursday. Previous cases have not stopped leaks, and the ease with which victor got caught said more about her own sloppiness than it did about the FBI's sleuthing prowess.

"The NSA nearly certainly has a record of who used the printer at that time", he wrote.

Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told The Daily Beast that her daughter has always been passionate and outspoken about her beliefs. But she has not entered a plea, and on Tuesday her attorney, Titus Thomas Nichols, told The Associated Press that "if there is a confession, the government has not shown it to me". "I mean, she has expressed to me that she is not a fan of Trump - but she's not someone who would go and riot or picket".

Winner's mother, Billie, says Reality is an Air Force veteran who also volunteers to help others.

Victor lived in a small rented home about a five-minute drive from the famed Augusta National Golf Club. "She's not a threat in any way", her mom said. She said that during one of her jailhouse phone calls, which were recorded, victor said she planned to "play that card: being pretty, white and cute". But the NSA has operated a $286 million complex in Augusta since 2012. He says depending on the evidence they gather could determine how the hearing will go for victor.

What led investigators to victor was an audit that revealed she was one of only six people who had printed the report, and the only one who had had email contact with The Intercept.

"We have the burden of showing that my client is not a risk of committing new offenses, that she's not a risk of fleeing", Nichols said.

"Repeat after me: In the United States of America, in the year 2017, access to clean, fresh, water is not a right, but a privilege based off one's socio-economic status". "She's going to be made an example of ..."

Victor served in the Air Force from December 2010 to 2016, leaving as a senior airman who was a cryptologic language analyst.

The Department of Justice said victor has admitted to the accusations.

Solari said victor also confessed to her mother during a recorded jailhouse phone call, saying: "Mom, those documents". Who with her cat and serving her family a vegetarian meal of barbecued jackfruit.

After Winner's arrest was announced, her Facebook page was filled with thousands of comments, many of them assailing her, accusing her of treason and, in some cases, calling for her to be executed.

CNN has reached out to Pluribus International to ask if it was aware of Winner's Twitter account.

"She's a young woman against the wall for talking to the press", he added. In fact, an online news outlet recently published an article dealing with a leaked, classified NSA document. She said her dealings with victor were all cordial and professional.

- "Outside of work she works as a yoga instructor".

"I was aware she was a government contractor but didn't know the extent of that, or which particular branch of that", Adams said. "I don't know how to explain it". About 4 million people, both government employees and contractors, hold security clearances, including 1.3 million with top secret clearances like Winner's. "She volunteers. She does whatever she can to make the community, and the world better", said Winner-Davis.

She also uses her Twitter username @Reezlie on Instagram; however, her activity on the two platforms differed dramatically. The postmark is believed to have been from Augusta, Georgia - where victor lives. If it had not been leaked, the public would still have nearly no inkling about how diligently Russian hackers worked to penetrate U.S. voting systems in the view of the USA intelligence community.
