US Charges Federal Contractor With “Removing Classified Material” From Gov’t Facility “And Mailing It To A News Outlet”

A federal contractor has been charged for leaking classified National Security Agency document to a news outlet in May.

The charges against Reality Leigh Winner came hours after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to allegedly hack the American voting systems in 2016.

The Department of Justice has charged Reality Leigh Winner, accusing her of leaking info to The Intercept.

Reality Winner called the president a ‘piece of shit’ and used the left wing hashtag #Resist in February on her Facebook page.

Reality Winner faces up to 10 years in a federal prison if convicted of the charge.
