The Daily Mail offers a piece on the case of a new NSA leaker, Reality Winner.
Reality Winner portrayed little emotion in court Thursday as she was denied bond in her federal espionage case after the government alleged that she may have stolen other top secret information and poses an ongoing risk to national security.
The Air Force veteran, 25, is accused of mailing a classified report on a Russian military intelligence cyber-attack in 2016 to a news website.
She entered a plea of not guilty before Judge Brian K. Epps at U.S. District Court in downtown Augusta, Georgia on Thursday afternoon after she was charged with a single count of 'willful retention and transmission of national defense information'.
Winner was brought into court, in an orange jumpsuit with her hair braided in a top knot, by two federal marshalls. Her hands were cuffed behind her back and she appeared to stand to attention when addressed by the judge.
She spoke only to respond: 'Yes, your honor' in a soft voice.
The prosecution made its case for Winner to be detained based on evidence that one prosecutor called 'downright frightening'.
The prosecution alleged that Winner is 'extremely intelligent' and may have removed information from a 'Top Secret computer on a USB drive' while she was on active duty and stated that the thumb drive has not been located.
