More details are coming out about alleged NSA leaker Reality Winner. She is apparently just the sort of America hating left winger you might find on any college campus. Which raises the question: Why was she working for the U.S. government?
USA Today reports:
Accused NSA leaker called America ‘the worst thing to happen on the planet’
Reality Winner, 25, told FBI agents she was disappointed in her job as a government contractor, court records show.
“Yeah, I screwed up royally,” Winner, told the agents in a transcript that makes public the details of her confession, which prosecutors have alluded to in prior court hearings.
Prosecutors are asking a federal judge to keep the former Air Force translator jailed until her trial. In a court filing Wednesday, prosecutors attached a 77-page transcript of Winner’s interview with FBI agents before her arrest in June.
In their latest filing Wednesday, prosecutors also included a partial transcript of a Facebook chat between Winner and her sister in February.
“Look, I only say I hate America like 3 times a day,” Winner wrote. “I’m no radical. It’s mostly just about Americans obsession with air conditioning.”
Her sister asked: “But you don’t actually hate America, right?”
Winner replied: “I mean yeah I do it’s literally the worst thing to happen on the planet. We invented capitalism the downfall of the environment.”
If she hated America so much, why did she take a paycheck from it? Why didn’t she move to some socialist utopia somewhere?
