NSA Leaker Appears in Court – Denied Bail, Tells Mom To Use “Chelsea Manning” Media Defense Strategy…

The leaker of classified NSA documents, Reality Leigh Winner appeared in court today in Augusta Georgia.  She was denied bail as prosecutors provided the judge with evidence in the case including Ms. Winner writing about burning down the White House and a pre-planned intention to flee the country and head to Afghanistan or Mexico.

(Via ABC) […] Prosecutors said they seized handwritten notes — written in several languages — from her home during a raid, including one that said “I want to burn the White House down.” Other notes detailed how to get a burner email account and phones and travel details for a trip to Afghanistan Winner allegedly planned to make in the summer.  (read more)

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari said in court that Winner admitted she had leaked the top secret document “to a particular news agency she admired” — and said “she was underwhelmed with what Wikileaks had to offer.”

Attorney Solari stressed that Winner referred to “documents” in the plural, and that federal agents were looking to see whether she may have stolen other classified information; adding that Winner allegedly had access to the dark web and had set up burner email accounts.

Federal agents found two notebooks in Winner’s home, according to the prosecution. In one, prosecutors allege that she wrote, “I want to burn the White House down.” On another page in one of the notebooks, prosecutors said, she listed the names of several Taliban and al Qaeda leaders, including Osama Bin Laden.

Winner allegedly told her mother that she needed to “go nuclear with the press” if she didn’t get bond because that’s how Chelsea Manning got out.

When prosecutors questioned Winner-Davis about her daughter telling her to “play that angle,” she said it was true.

A federal judge denied Winner’s request for bond.  (more)

            The thing about Sessions so far that is disappointing to me, is that he seems to be doing “business as usual” in DC. With constant leaks and a deep-state resistance to the Presidency, this is ANTYING but BUSINESS as usual. For example, Sessions has been focused on cracking down on drug crime, in particular marijuana. WHAT!?!?!?!

            He needs to focus on saving the Presidency and fighting the deep state, including Obama & Soros!!!!! (marijuana should not even be on his radar right now….)

The wheels of law grind exceedingly slow. The people who shout out their feelings don’t get anything but insults back. The people who make a bold move to show their intent are virtue signalers who are polluting their own process just to make a point with some base.. Gowdy has a stern face and way of cutting to the chase which makes it seem like he’d whip out some divine sword of vengeance and instantly convict all the bad guys, but he can’t, any more than Sessions. I think it’s all going well considering that POTUS and his minions have been swimming against a strong current since before he announced his campaign.

              All he did was remind them of reality. Some of the complainants here are sounding like snowflakes. That needs to be called out.

              Sessions delivered the firing of Comey, done in a way that has stood up as valid and due process. Comey has now demonstrated that he has and had nothing on President Trump, or likely anyone else in the Trump administration and has validated the President’s statements (e.g. multiple advice that President Trump was not under investigation; most media reports on the alleged FBI investigations are fake news).

              This was a pre-condition to getting an honest director in to head the FBI. Once that happens many things will open up. That director will find after a year of chasing an investigation based on nothing but MSM/Dem lies and slander the FBI has found zero evidence of any crime and will either wind it up or give it to 2 junior agents and a dog (to bite Mueller if he gets stroppy). He will seriously go after leakers of classified material and put some of them before courts (though of course most of what appears in the MSM is not leaks, it is simply lies claiming to be leaks). He will (hopefully) review the Clinton server file and the Clinton Foundation file and refer them onto DOJ for prosecution. And much more.

              It is effectively impossible for Sessions to move on any of these points while stuck with an FBI head trying to block it, because the FBI can put up obstructive agents at any court case who claim they have found nothing and thus sink the case.

                  Well, I am one who thinks Gowdy is all talk no action; Sessions is no talk and I am withholding judgement on whether there is action until I see some. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any, but I agree with the poodle/bulldog comparison…would prefer a Christie type, but although I have been critical of Sessions, I will give him the benefit of the doubt at this point. But, he is overly concerned with how the swamp thinks about him, too bad about that.

                  I also agree that marijuana is of so low level of importance, why is it even on the radar at all.

                  Gowdy punted during Hillary’s hearings last year. Oh, yeah, he “shredded” her arguments. But did nothing — absolutely NOTHING to have her punished or recommend that she be prosecuted at a minimum. Epic fail.

                  And yet the Sessions-bashers demand that he clean up the entire DOJ and 60 years socialist sleaze in 16 weeks.

                  And still yet you have no idea how long it takes to put together a grand jury, empanel the jury, present the evidence (with all of it convultions and intertwined parties), and then get an indictment.

                  But go ahead, pretend it’s an episode of Law & Order (as Jimmy Jack noted) and that we can solve for all things known and unknown to us in the 43 minutes of a one-hour TV show.

              Sundance essentially said the same thing about Gowdy awhile back. This is why nothing comes of his investigations.

              Sessions isn’t publicly aggressive – that’s a fact. If a person believes that makes him ineffectual that’s an opinion. But if you look at Gowdy’s record he’s done far less in years while show boating around as the outraged congressman than Sessions has in 5 months while weighted down by Obama holdovers.

              Let’s see…..the Sessions/Rosenstein team had been in place for perhaps 80 to 90 days. Sessions has been in congress for 30 years and surely knows that the Marxists who masquerade as democrats must be defeated and destroyed. Rosenstein has probably spent at least half his working life in “government”. Both Sessions and Rosenstein know in their heart of hearts that this entire Russian thing is a malevolent fraud to cover up the criminal enterprise that was the obama regime and an attempt to destroy Trump. The first thing they decide to do is to give the Marxists exactly what they want via recusal and naming a special counsel. I call that surrendering before you’ve even begun the battle. It has been suggested that they need better PR. I would suggest that they need better instincts and a willingness and a passion to put it all on the line. That is my expectation of everybody on Trump’s team and perhaps it is also Trump’s expectation. It’s now or never. Rolling over and waving the white flag is not a winning strategy. So yes…..really unforgiveable.

            Recusing himself was a strategic mistake. My guess is that he hasn’t read the SJW attack survival guide.

            I was talking to a guy earlier this week. He’s nominally conservative. He doesn’t vote vote straight party, but he mostly votes for Republicans, including Trump. He’s mostly happy with Trump’s progress so far, but started saying that he should give up twitter – leave it for his staff. He said it gave the media too many opportunities to attack him.

            I questioned him a bit, and he agreed that the media was attacking him anyway, and he agreed that they wouldn’t stop even if he gave up twitter.

            He knows, in his brain. He knows that the media hates Trump and will, until either he or they die, attack him in every way possible. But he, like so many, has Battered Conservative Syndrome. His instinct is to accept the point-of-view presented to him and go along with it to avoid being attacked himself.

            I see the same thing in Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and many more, including Jeff Sessions. The good news is that not that many jobs depend on having excellent instincts all of the time. A President needs great instincts. An Attorney General usually has time to think things over – far fewer snap judgments.

            It is perfectly understandable that Jeff Sessions might imagine that all of the attacks against him were because the left doesn’t like him. It is also completely understandable that he might think that his resignation would put some distance between him and the administration – protecting Trump from that incoming fire.

            But the reasonable thing isn’t always the right thing. Trump was wise (good instincts) to refuse his resignation. Trump understood that, as a Republican president, he is going to be under 24/7 attack for 8 years. And also that the attacks on the people close to him are actually attacks on him, and not on the other person.

    “She talked about her work with cyanide in class, and I found it really interesting so I asked if I could be involved,” said Winner. Petrikovics’s research on cyanide is an ongoing project funded by the U.S. Government’s Department of Defense. The study focuses on methods to dissipate its effects on the general population in case of cyanide use in bio-terrorism and/or poisoning.

    Winner will graduate in May and has been accepted into the doctoral program at Michigan State University. After receiving her doctorate she hopes to continue her research in toxicology and work in the industry.

    That was in 2012. and it looks like she is currently in Okemos, Michigan, right outside of Lansing, Michigan where Michigan State is located…. ugh.

    She is a tool. The document is not a finding. It’s a report. It was placed in the system to be “found” and “leaked”. Notice, not to WikiLeaks. But to a profound Leftist outlet. Even they festoon the information with all kinds of cautions.

    The Russian GRU does not give a hoot about our elections. They care about our Laser Space weapons, our Hypersonic kinetic weapons, our night optics gear. Stuff that can win battles in wars.

    Real hackers of high skill are untraceable.

    If NSA could trace the Russian state hackers, they would do it.

    Read the article. There is nothing related to a clue it was GRU.

    This young woman fits the profile of a stooge. She thinks she’s a hero throwing proof of Russian hacking the election into the limelight.

    Pathetic effort by the IC to manufacture “hacking evidence”.
    It doesn’t exist. It’s not even behind the phony redacted blackouts. If it did, the Intercept would have published it. Greenwald was the pipeline from Snowden to the Guardian. He went to Hong Kong with Snowden. That’s his DNA, to expose the real goods, not to just publish this junk. This was done by him to throw mud onTrump for backing out of the Paris Accords.

      I agreed with Bull when I first read this, and still do now.

      My tin foil hat version is:
      1. The report was manufactured, i.e. it’s fake.
      2. Our Winner in this story was chosen – with her willing agreement – to receive, and then release the fake report.
      3. This was purposefully timed just before Comey’s scheduled testimony.
      4. All parties involved thought this “proof” of Russian involvement would become the headline news. (and maybe Comey was even set to use this for the foundation of his testimony. Afterall, a lot of people were wondering why the heck he wanted to do this in public hearing.
      5. Instead, to their shock, she was arrested and her actions became the news (at least online…not so much in MSM)
      6. She never expected (because of previous leaking cases) to be arrested or charged. Certainly not with the serious situation she now faces. Obviously thought being a cute, white, blond female would get her out of it all.

      She may not be the “big tuna” we would all like to have caught and processed…but maybe it is enough to give some potential leakers reason to pause…while the DoJ and FBI concentrate on other big fish.

      The AF gave her one and then it was transferred to the contractor that hired her. Happens every day. If you have a high level clearance like TS, there are scads of gov contractors who will hire you for big money.

      • i’m retired mil and i’m aware of all that– i see exactly what you wrote all the time– but the fact that she was granted a clearance AT ALL F’n baffles me….what agency processed her SF86, did her SSBI and adjudicated that she should be granted a clearance? i find it VERY hard to believe that NONE of her “issues” went undiscovered during the investigation process.

        I just had a conversation with a friend about an Immigrant currently in the army who is getting out and already been seek out by outside contractors for a very large salary. We know him to be a rabid anti-Trump, yet he has clearance and he is dealing with top-secret info all day. Scary. How these people get and retain clearance is scary.

    …..”how did this 25-year-old, with a checkered public social network past, which revealed her contempt for the president, end up with a top secret clearance and was unaware her NSA work computer was being monitored, and that her prison conversations were being recorded. We can only attribute it to the vast qualified labor gap plaguing America these days…..”

    How many other ’employees’ will suddenly quit once they learn about their every more being monitored?

    To those of you who are saying…”Nothing will happen” and “Justice system is broken”…and “Nothing has changed”.

    I just saw something very encouraging.

    Remember the Portland event last Sunday?
    Free Speech Rally held by Trump Supporters…and Antifa Scum showed up, armed, trying to shut it down and attack the Trump Supporters.

    I just read an article posted here:

    https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/news/read.cfm?id=58175&ec=1&ch=twitter

    It states in the List of agencies that were there to enforce Law & Order, that Four Federal Agencies were there:

    * Federal Protective Service
    * Department of Homeland Security
    * Federal Bureau of Investigation
    * United States Attorney’s Office

    So, this is something New.
    This shows…that things are ‘changing’.

    What happened to the storyline about VT Corp software that is so easily corruptible? Shouldn’t VT Corp be investigated as to why their voter software can be targeted by anybody with computer codes that will trigger changing the outcome of any election in any jurisdiction where VT has control of the voting software?

    The concept that Russia got the keys to corrupt the software is not the big story here. Why is the software corruptible in the first place? If the software is not online, then it is not corruptible, perhaps. Where is the investigation?

    The other day i was certain she was nothing more than a weaponized SJW. A stooge, a patsy. Maybe she is and everyone has pointed out her incredibly stupid mistakes….but it’s more than a little strange that she had been using a thumb drive, sounds like maybe more than once to retrieve info. She has an ME and Iran sympathies. She hates Prez Trump. The company “Clientele varies from federal defense agencies, to security, military and intelligence agencies.”

    That’s a whole lotta areas that would interest a ME/Iranian sympathizer. What rational young woman (I think, lol) civilian would be traveling to Afghanistan for fun?
    This will be heavy duty tin foil area but could she have done much more damage stealing top secret defense info and set herself up for the useless bullshit Russian stuff knowing that the deranged Left and msm would make her out to be a ding-a-ling misguided yute and why so hard on her? Please tell me I’m nutz !!

    I know aomeone whose adopted son was offered a job with intelligence in the Air Force, they where going to give him a large figure sign up bonus. He spent a few days and quit He was born in a different country an was going to get a high security clearance position with no problem. I was born here served in the military had to get back ground check to carry a gun for a job, passed all the checks. When I had to work in the federal building in Chicago it took 8 months to get clearance and that with the contractor calling everyday. When we got to work the cleaning crew could not speak english who cleared them? Who is in charge of passing out these clearances?

    excerpt:

    Prosecutors warned U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps that Winner might have more stolen secrets. Solari said investigators have learned Winner inserted a portable hard drive in a top-secret Air Force computer before she left the military last year. She said authorities don’t know what happened to the drive or what was on it.

    Solari said Winner’s laptop also contained software that could enable her to access online black-markets and buy items — such as a fake ID or passport — without revealing her identity or location.

    “We don’t know how much more she knows and how much more she remembers,” Solari said. “But we do know she’s very intelligent. So she’s got a lot of valuable information in her head.”

    Who vets these people? Starting work in February meant she had to be interviewed and back ground checked in January, likely in the period just before Donald Trumps inauguration. Was the personnel office so clueless and maladroit as to miss all these warning signs or did somebody in personnel decide to let Reality Winner in so as to roll a hand grenade, pin pulled, into the tent housing Donald Trump & Co. Hussein Obama/ValJar wouldnt content themselves doing something as trivial as removing the ‘W’ keys from all the White House keyboards.

    Ummm Kay… I spy with my little eye, a sociopath! Manipulative, conniving, high IQ. She’s hitting all the little checkmarks. However she has zero common sense whatsoever. How could she not know she was being monitored by the NSA and for that matter that the jail phones are recorded? As to her security clearance? Well being involved in Air Force Linguistics Studies and speaking Afghan and Iranian languages means she has Intelligence clearance with the Air Force and maintained it when she was honorably discharged which is how she got the contractor gig with the NSA. They usually seek out those with a clearance already. It also sounds like she really admires Snowden and Manning. But clearly her computer knowledge is lacking, unlike Snowden and Manning she is no computer wiz. At least Snowden took steps to avoid being detected and was smart enough to flee before they could catch him. Manning, less so.

    I don’t buy that she was indoctrinated by the black hoodie, ‘Mr Robot’ (highly realistic show by the way), activist hacker crowd. But she was surfing the deep web and dark web at home. Sounds more like a novice with language skills entered that dark world and picked up on the warped ideology but didn’t have the skills to carry it out. She has some skills as the NSA would have trained her but she was reviewing intercepted Afghan and Iranian communications and translating no doubt. Not even sure she was supposed to have access to what she leaked. There are indications she did not and someone let her into the files. But to print it out on NSA network printers then use your own personal Gmail, etc. Pretty dumb. After the raid at her home she was taking security much more seriously and was trying to setup anonymous email and planning to flee the country. At least Snowden was an IT worker at NSA meaning he had permission to use USB drives and had network privileges but even then he planted key loggers and used senior officials passwords to access the top secret content that he then copied. Snowden was able to cover his tracks at least for a while. I doubt Reality Winner was even a full analyst but more a translation pool worker, translating mostly useless intercepted comms looking for dangerous comms to report or just collecting intel that may or may not be useful later.

    The big question is when will the NSA stop using contractors? It makes it a heck of a lot harder to keep tabs on them and vet them properly. NSA / CIA workers are run through psych testing, lie detector tests, are spied on and monitored, etc. I know people with military top secret clearance and they won’t even hang out with foreign workers in the USA for fear they are being watched or their comms are being intercepted. Just to maintain that clearance if they were to ever re-enter top secret work. That’s people who did that work in the 1980’s and early 90’s they were and are all paranoid because they saw just a glimpse of what was possible from the NSA, CIA, DoD intelligence services.

    The situation reminds me of the one with Beau Birddog. Both are traitors. Loyalty to Taliban. Grandiose views of themselves and their importance or “mission” in the world. Unusually high amount of confidence that they can manipulate people and situations. Hatred of America (and pretty much everything else, too.)

    Somebody allowed this mindset to develop-unchecked. Now the real world has taught them a lesson about lying that they should have learned as little children. But hey-what can we really expect from the babies of the Bill Clinton “Character Doesn’t Matter” era?

    The company that hired this person should immediately be removed from handling classified information. There is no way this person should have been hired.

    Assange is is a two sided coin, sometimes what he does helps you, sometimes it hurts you. He is a true believer in his cause, and that is revealing the truth. I see him as a necessary evil.

    I actually appreciate what this woman revealed, that Russian actors tried to phish into voter registration software. That’s information we citizens need to know. However, it probably would have come out eventually anyway if they ever produce a final report on all of this.

    I don’t understand how she thought this information she leaked helped her cause. I think she’s just such an irrational Trump hater that she thought it was some sort of proof Russia helped steal the election for him. Apparently she didn’t understand what it actually says.

    I have no sympathy for her. Lock her ass up, save some room for Comey, Lynch, Hillary, Obama, Rice, etc, etc.
