NSA leaker Reality Winner is in a world of trouble and she knows it. She probably thought she was pretty smart for leaking information to the press to try to bring down Trump but now she’s learning what reality truly means.
She’s also making ridiculous claims.
NBC News reports:
Mom of Alleged NSA Leaker Reality Winner: ‘She’s Not a Threat’
Reality Winner, a 25-year-old who worked at the National Security Agency, has been charged with providing the report to The Intercept, an online news organization. Winner’s mother said her daughter was “terrified” when she returned to her Augusta home Saturday to find armed federal agents waiting for her.
“Her words to me was that she was scared she was going to be … they were going to make her disappear,” Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, said Tuesday…
FBI agents followed Winner up her driveway after she had been grocery shopping and took her to a back room of the house and kept her there, according to her mother’s retelling of Saturday’s arrest.
“I’m in trouble,” her mom recalls her saying in a phone call later that day.
“She was terrified, she was scared,” her mother said. “I don’t know how many of them there were, but there were a lot and they were all armed.”
Ed Morrissey of Hot Air puts this in perspective:
The US does not “disappear” criminals; that’s something that regimes like Iran do on a regular basis. Perhaps Winner should have kept that in mind when pledging her own loyalty to Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif on Twitter.
That’s exactly right.
