Trump Admin Files Charges Against White House Leaker


President Trump now knows who the person is who for months has been leaking classified White House documents to the liberal media.

Reality Leigh Winner is a major Bernie Sanders supporter (I guess anyone with a name like that must have the kind of hippie parents who would raise a Bernie supporter).

The 25-year-old probably thought she was doing something noble and heroic.

Now, she’s going to jail, for a long time.

From the Daily Caller:

The Justice Department filed charges on Monday against a 25-year-old woman accused of stealing Top Secret information and providing it to The Intercept.

Reality Leigh Winner is accused in the complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Georgia, of “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,” the Justice Department said.

Winner, who lives in Augusta, has worked for Pluribus International since Feb. 13, according to the complaint. She held a Top Secret clearance.

On May 9, “Winner printed and improperly removed classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency, and unlawfully retained it,” the complaint says.

She then transmitted the information through mail to an online news outlet several days later.

The news outlet is not revealed in the complaint, but NBC News has reported that the recipient of the documents is The Intercept, a website founded by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

The U.S. agency that contracts with Pluribus International is also not named, but the National Security Agency contracts work through the firm.

FBI agents interviewed Winner at her home on Saturday. During the interview she acknowledged that “she intentionally identified and printed” classified information “despite not having a ‘need to know,’ and with knowledge that the intelligence reporting was classified.”
