Trump leaker Reality Winner, 25, thought her pretty white girl looks would get her off the hook, but a judge wasn’t buying into it as he denied her bail.
NSA leaker Reality Winner was denied bail Thursday as federal prosecutors revealed “downright frightening” evidence and that she may have stolen more classified information.
“I’m pretty, white and cute,” she allegedly told her sister in a recorded phone call from the jail prosecutors said, telling her she would “go out and play the cute, blonde white girl. Braid my hair, going to cry.”
Judge Epps made the decision to deny bail based on the the missing USB drive and Winner’s notes.
She is accused of revealing classified information, used in an article published Monday by The Intercept, which detailed a classified National Security Agency memo. The NSA report, dated May 5, provides details of a 2016 Russian cyberattack on a US voting software supplier, though there is no evidence the hack affected any votes.
Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Solari said it is unclear how much material is involved in the case. Authorities are looking at two laptops, a tablet and four cellphones seized from Winner’s home as well as spiral-bound notebooks.
The charge, willful retention and transmission of national defense information, could bring Winner up to 10 years in prison. She could also face a fine of up to $250,000
