FINALLY! Finally the Intel Agencies are cracking down on leakers..

via Washington Examiner.
A 25-year-old federal contractor is facing charges she leaked a classified National Security Agency document to a news outlet in May. The charges come about an hour after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to hack American voting systems.

Reality Leigh Winner, of Augusta, Ga., is facing charges that she removed classified material from a government facility and mailed it to a news outlet. She was arrested on Saturday and appeared on the charge Monday.

The announcement comes shortly after The Intercept published a report based on a classified intelligence document showing Russian government hackers attempted to hack more than 100 local election officials before the November election.

According to the report, Russian military intelligence sent the emails to local elections officials. They also attempted a cyber attack on at least one American voting software supplier.

The Justice Department didn't confirm that Winner leaked the document to The Intercept, but the report stated the report received by the news outlet was dated May 5. The affidavit confirms the intelligence document was also dated on May 5.

Winner worked for Pluribus International Corporation and was assigned to a government facility in Georgia. She's held a Top Secret classified security clearance since being hired on Feb. 13.

Hey Ms. Reality Leigh Winner!  Here's some reality.  You're part of the resistance?  Ok, then get treated like an insurgent!

I hope they throw the book at her!

If this is done right then she won't see the outside of a federal penitentiary till she's in her late 60's!

Side note:  Have you noticed that no news organizations have come out calling her a whistle blower?  No one is actually coming forward to defend her? Someone called me a Russia supporter.  Nope.  I just don't see a need to cross swords with them.  However a Russian phrase definitely applies to Ms. Reality Winner.  What is that phrase?  Useful idiot!  She was used by the Neo-Cons, Establishment Republican/Democrats and disposed of once the deed was done.  This should be a warning to others.  You might have allegiance to them but they don't have a single ounce of caring for you!

Side note 1:  Is it possible this was a mole hunt?  Could this document be fake and used as a way to smoke out leakers?  I'm really not sure but the speed at which they made the arrest makes me wonder.
