Reality Winner - Leaker

From NBC News:
Barely an hour after a news organization published an article about a Top Secret National Security Agency document on Russian hacking, the Justice Department announced charges against a 25-year-old government contractor who a senior federal official says was the leaker of the document.

The May 5, 2017 intelligence document published by The Intercept, an online news organization, describes new details about Russian efforts to hack voting systems in the U.S a week prior to the 2016 presidential election. While the document doesn’t say the hacking changed any votes, it "raises the possibility that Russian hacking may have breached at least some elements of the voting system, with disconcertingly uncertain results."

Even as the document was ricocheting around Washington, the Justice Department announced that a criminal complaint was filed in the Southern District of Georgia charging Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor, with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet.

The complaint did not link the charges with the story, but a senior federal official confirmed to NBC News that Winner is the accused leaker of the document published by the Intercept. The NSA has a large facility in Georgia.

NBC News doesn't tell much about Reality Winner. That's not surprising given that she has documented her hatred for Trump on social media. She uses terms that you'd expect from a CNN host.

Gateway Pundit has the story: "NSA Leaker ‘Reality Winner’ Called POTUS Trump a ‘Piece of Sh*t’ and ‘C*unt’ on Social Media"

From her Facebook page Reality likes: Animal Rights, The Daily Show, Bill Maher, Michael Moore and the Trump bashing “Trump Draws” facebook page.

Winner called Donald Trump a “piece of shit” in a February post on the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

Here's more about Reality Winner:

From the Daily Caller:
The 25-year-old woman who stole “Top Secret” documents from the National Security Agency and leaked them to The Intercept appears to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders and other progressive icons, such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore.

Reality Leigh Winner’s apparent social media footprint also shows that she is a supporter of other liberal causes, including the Women’s March and the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim civil rights group.

She also recently referred to President Trump as a “piece of shit” because of his position on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests.

...Winner’s posts on Facebook suggest that she is politically active.

Winner was heavily critical of Trump just after he took office. She used the hashtag “NeverMyPresident” and “Resist” in a Facebook post about his position on DAPL.
From Conservative Review:
A Twitter account reportedly belonging to Winner announced that she would stand with the terrorist Iranian regime against the United States.

In March, she wrote a long letter to a Ms. Zoller in Georgia alleging a wild conspiracy about the “permanent war economy.” She assailed energy companies for creating the Middle East refugee crisis that she believes is further worsened by climate change .

Some of the political pages Winner “Liked” on Facebook include those of democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, Koch Brothers Exposed, Media Matters for America, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

It's not difficult to understand Winner's motives, is it?
