MSNBC: NSA Contractor Charged with Leaking Classified Information About Russia Election Interference

 

 

GEIST: “A 25-year-old intelligence contractor has become the first person to be charged with leaking classified information under the Trump Administration. The Justice Department announced yesterday that Reality Leigh Winner, an NSA contractor, had been charged with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet. The official complaint against Winner says, ‘She admitted to printing out a May 5th intelligence document describing new details about Russian efforts to hack voting systems in the U.S. a week prior to the 2016 presidential election, and then mailing it to the online news organization, ‘The Intercept.’ This morning, Russia is denying the allegations laid out in that intel document, calling them false and unfounded. Barely an hour after ‘The Intercept’ published this article yesterday, the charges against Winner were announced. Her attorney told NBC News his client is, quote, looking forward to putting this behind her. And she has no prior criminal history. We’ll talk a lot more about this when ‘Morning Joe’ comes back with former Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller.”
