Mother fears woman accused of leak will be made an example

Reality Winner has been charged with sending classified material to a news organization

The 25-year-old intelligence contractor accused of leaking a top secret report on Russian meddling in the United States election appears on social media as a smiling young nature lover with an abiding aversion to President Donald Trump. Her attorney told reporters she plans to plead not guilty.

Victor worked for a USA government contractor in Augusta. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had already apprehended victor by the time The Intercept published the report.

A criminal complaint charges that Winners violated the Espionage Act, which prohibits "disloyal" forms of speech, by "removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet", according to the HuffPost. The NSA report was dated May 5, the same as the document victor is charged with leaking. She follows 50 twitter accounts, among them Edward Snowden and Wikileaks. Investigators found handmade entries at her home during a raid, that said "I want to burn the White House down.find somewhere in Kurdistan to live".

Victor has been jailed in neighbouring Lincoln County since her arrest, according to a booking report released by the sheriff. Victor was arrested at her home on Saturday and on Wednesday she will go before a federal judge for a bond hearing.

Victor is a former Air Force linguist who now works as a US government contractor. She was a linguist who speaks Pashto, Farsi and Dari - languages widely spoken in Iran and Afghanistan. Her profile picture is a photo of herself, and she posted a selfie in February.

"Because my client is a millennial and she knows how to use technology, that's somehow proof of evil intent", said Titus Nichols, Winner's defense attorney. Solari said investigators have learned victor inserted a portable hard drive in a top-secret Air Force computer before she left the military previous year. "She's a patriot, and to see her maligned and slandered in the media is very disheartening".

Despite their limited professional experience, many are entrusted with handling data containing national security secrets.

In the charged atmosphere in Washington, where an embattled Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey last month and has demanded Russian Federation probe leakers be rooted out, some Republicans were quick to condemn victor.
