Woke up this morning to a story about an NSA contractor who leaked documents about Russian involvement in our election.
You just know she’s a Trump hater.
The clues were evident:
Her name? Reality Winner or more completely, Reality Leigh Winner.
What did NPR leave out?
Reality Leigh Winner’s apparent social media footprint also shows that she is a supporter of other liberal causes, including the Women’s March and the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim civil rights group.
She also recently referred to President Trump as a “piece of shit” because of his position on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests.
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.
Winner admitted to FBI agents that she stole the documents and provided them to The Intercept. The news site published an article on Monday that appears to be based on the stolen materials. The Top Secret records show that Russian agents attempted to hack into U.S. voting systems prior to the November election.
The federal complaint filed against Winner reveals that she stole the classified documents on May 9, four days after they were published by the NSA. She printed the report and sent it through ground mail to The Intercept. On May 30, a reporter with the outlet contacted the NSA inquiring about the documents. The agency then contacted the FBI, which dispatched agents to interview and apprehend Winner at her home in Augusta.
A photo of Winner has not been publicly released, but her Facebook page includes information that matches details contained in a federal indictment filed against her in New York on Monday.
The indictment states that Winner has blonde hair and is five-feet-five. The document also mentions that Winner was planning a vacation to Belize last month and that she drives a light-colored Nissan Cube. Winner’s social media accounts show that she visited Belize and drives a car matching that description.
Jon Swaine, a reporter with The Guardian, also identified Winner.
