After leaking national secrets and admitting that she wanted “to burn the White House Down… [and] find somewhere in Kurdistan to live,” Reality Winner confirms her unhinged thinking. Her “defense” is apparently going to be that she’s “cute” and “white” and can cry on demand.
The DC Caller reports:
Reality Leigh Winner, the 25-year-old government contractor who recently stole classified documents from the National Security Agency, has revealed her strategy for avoiding jail time: play the “pretty, white and cute” card.
The plan, which Winner reportedly discussed with her sister from the Georgia detention center where she resides, is somewhat hypocritical since she has said on social media that “being white is terrorism.”
“I’m going to play that card being pretty, white and cute, braid my hair and cry and all,” Winner told her sister during a phone call from the jailhouse, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari said in a court hearing in Atlanta on Thursday.
. . . . Winner, who was denied bail on Thursday, was discovered after a reporter with The Intercept contacted the NSA, which on May 30 informed the FBI of the breach. Investigators were able to determine that Winner was the person who leaked the documents to The Intercept.
Solari gave other details about Winner’s strategy going forward as well as her motivations for stealing the Top Secret report.
The prosecutor said in another jailhouse conversation, Winner told her mother that she wanted her to tell the media that she was afraid for her life.
“Play up that angle,” Winner told her mother, according to Solari.
Reality’s phony tears and scheming don’t change the facts: Treason is treason, and that is reality.
