People on the left are going to try to make a hero out of NSA leaker “Reality Winner” but it’s not going to work. She didn’t leak information which helped the USA or the world in any way. She was just trying to bring down the President of the United States.
Her stepfather says she’s a patriot.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Reality Winner, alleged NSA leaker, a ‘patriot,’ stepfather says
Alleged National Security Agency leaker Reality Winner’s family is sticking by her.
Winner’s stepfather, Gary Davis, said, “You may not agree with her politics, but she is a patriot,” in an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Winner served six years as a linguist in the Air Force.
“She served her country,” Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told NBC News. “She is a good person.”
Winner, a federal contractor, is accused of sending classified documents to The Intercept. She was arrested Saturday and charged Monday.
Winner, of Augusta, Ga., is accused of printing off classified material, removing it from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet. The documents concerned Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
This woman is not a hero. What she did was wrong.
Now she’s going to jail. Hopefully for a long time.
