She Looks Like Tonya Harding

Reality Leigh Winner stole “Top Secret” documents from the National Security Agency and leaked them to The Intercept.  Winner is a supporter of Bernie Sanders, Bill Maher, Michael Moore, the Women’s March and the Islamic Society of North America.

Winner was indicted in federal court on Monday after she allegedly stole classified documents from her employer, Pluribus International, a defense contractor that does work for the NSA from its offices in Augusta, GA.

The charges against her came about an hour after the publication of a story based on an NSA document detailing Russian attempts to hack American voting systems in 2016.

"The U.S. Government Agency examined the document shared by the News Outlet and determined the pages of the intelligence reporting appeared to be folded and/or creased, suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space," the affidavit read.

Winner was identified because she was one of six people who printed the document off of their computer. Of those six, she was the only one who had any email contact with a news outlet.

"Winner further acknowledged that she was aware of the contents of the intelligence reporting and that she knew the contents of the reporting could be used to the injury of the United States and to the advantage of a foreign nation," the affidavit stated.

"During that conversation, Winner admitted intentionally identifying and printing the classified intelligence reporting at issue despite not having a ‘need to know,' and with knowledge that the intelligence reporting was classified."
