USA national security personnel charged with leaking secret Russian document

USA national security personnel charged with leaking secret Russian document

'She hasn't admitted it to us at all, ' Billie-Jean told Cooper.

After months of pleading with the Department of Justice to find someone leaking classified information to the press, President Donald Trump got his first taste of justice on Monday evening.

Task & Purpose reports victor, who reportedly served as a linguist in the Air Force and is fluent in Pashto, Farsi and Dari, enlisted in 2013.

Victor remained locked up Tuesday on federal charges that she made copies of classified documents containing top-secret material and mailed them to an online news organisation.

"My client has no [criminal] history, so it's not as if she has a pattern of having done anything like this before", Nichols said in a phone interview Monday.

The NSA also conducted an internal audit to find out that six people had printed out the secret report - but only victor had been in touch with The Intercept by email through her work computer.

'She's a patriot and to see her maligned and slandered in the media is very disheartening. "She served with distinction in one of the highest classified jobs in the air force".

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 U.S. local government organizations, the document said. I'm terrified that she is not going to be treated fairly'.

A post from late May about how Winner's dog kisses her while she is on the couch has now turned into a place for commenters to make comments about Winner's sex life.

What the experts told me is quite different from what the Obama administration said after the 2016 election.

But according to the NSA report, evidence that the hackers were also stealing the login credentials of people with administrative access to the voter-registration systems raises concerns that the Russians were able to do "anything they wanted" - including, Bardin said, breaching voting machines. We saw her only at the court hearing. Only since Trump became President did she act.

But the comments in the hours after her arrest were overwhelmingly negative.

In between comments about prison rape, and those who believe victor will never see daylight again, there is at least one man who believes that leaking classified information wasn't Winner's fault at all.

Mrs Davis spoke outside her daughter's home alongside her husband Gary. Manning, 29, was court-martialed, convicted and sentenced to 35 years in prison for her role in those leaks, but the bulk of her sentence was commuted by Mr. Obama in January.

It was yet another twist on the trail of Russian meddling in US politics that stretches back well into a year ago, from the controversy over leaked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign to ongoing investigations into meetings involving President Trump's advisers.

Speaking outside the Augusta, Georgia, home where victor was arrested on Saturday by ten auto loads of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, her mother said her daughter had not been politically-minded growing up.

'She's a good girl, she's a good person, she's never been in trouble with anyone, the law or anything.

'She always does what's right.

Her feeds show forceful views on climate change, refugees, the war in Syria and her distinct dislike of Trump and his policies. That's what she wants to do'.

The government charged victor, 25, a Georgia intelligence contractor, with removing classified material from a government facility.

The "Top Secret" National Security Agency (NSA) report, which was published online by The Intercept, does not say whether the hacking had any effect on election results.

On June 1, the US agency notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation that it had been contacted by the news outlet on May 30 regarding an upcoming story.

Security experts have criticized The Intercept for failing to retype a copy of the leaked document, one stripped of ink-encoded identifiers and timestamps, before approaching the NSA and before taking the report public.

Espionage charges against Reality Leigh Winner, 25, who worked for government contractor Pluribus International Corp., were announced by the U.S. Justice Department on Monday, shortly after the online news outlet The Intercept published what it said was a National Security Agency report detailing Russian hacking efforts in the days before the 2016 election.
