Jailed NSA Leaker Is Young Anti-white Anti American Social Justice Warrior

The parents of a US government contractor charged with leaking classified documents to a news organization insist she's not a flight risk and should be released from jail before her trial.

Victor has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a single count, but the government said it would likely add to the indictment.

Government contractor Reality Winner made explosive comments about burning down the White House in notebooks the Federal Bureau of Investigation found in her Augusta, Georgia, residence, according to a prosecutor who spoke in U.S. District Court on Thursday.

Victor is accused of "removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet", according to a federal complaint. Her stepfather Gary Davis noted that she served six years in the Air Force, provided real-time translation to Americans on field missions, and received a commendation for aiding in the death of more than 100 enemy combatants and the capture of another 250 combatants.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps denied bond Thursday for 25-year-old Reality Winner.

Victor was a contractor with top-secret clearance when she allegedly leaked a classified report about Russian election interference to the online publication The Intercept.

According to CNN, attorney Titus Nichols said a detention hearing will take place on Thursday, where the judge will determine whether to release victor on bond.

"And she felt like she needed to give them what they were asking for at the time", Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, said. Even if you take all the government allegations as true, it's clear she is neither a threat to public safety nor a flight risk.

No evidence about Russia's interference in US polls: Putin
The investment growth into Russian Federation exceeds GDP growth, this trend should be maintained, he said. Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, has been charged with sending the news media a classified government report about Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Not long after top-secret documents from the National Security Agency made their way onto the Internet news site The Intercept on Monday, the Justice Department arrested NSA contractor Reality Winner.

"She's never ever given me any kind of indication that she was in favor of that at all", Winner-Davis said.

Victor served in the Air Force from December 2010 to 2016, leaving as a senior airman who was a cryptologic language analyst.

"I want to burn the White House down", prosecutors alleged she wrote in one notebook. She later called him "our Tangerine in Chief". "Her words to me were that she was really scared that they would make her disappear", Davis said.

"My client has no (criminal) history, so it's not as if she has a pattern of having done anything like this before", Nichols said in a phone interview Monday.

Winner's mother and stepfather told ABC affiliate WSB-TV in Atlanta earlier this week that victor, an Air Force veteran, is a patriot. The jail released Winner's booking photo to NBC affiliate WRDW and NBC News earlier Wednesday.

A USA intelligence contractor accused of illegally leaking a classified report on Russian interference in US elections to a media outlet pleaded not guilty on Thursday to an espionage offense, and a federal judge denied her request for bail.
