Russian Federation hacked 2016 U.S. presidential election, reveals NSA

Posted June 08, 2017

Reality Winner's parents family home is just East of Ricardo, but her parents are in Augusta, Georgia where Reality works and where she was arrested.

A judge has scheduled a hearing Thursday for victor in U.S. District Court to determine whether to allow her to be released on bond pending trial.

After searching her work computer, according to the affidavit, NSA and FBI investigators discovered that victor had emailed the document to The Intercept from her private email, asking for podcast transcripts in the message.

Winner-Davis told The Daily Beast that she spoke with her daughter on Sunday evening - the day after she was arrested - but they apparently did not discuss details of the case.

Victor had top security clearance from her time serving in the U.S. Air Force for six years.

"She called me on Saturday afternoon, and she told me she was in trouble", Davis said.

The NSA document, obtained by online news outlet The Intercept, reportedly claimed that Russian military intelligence attempted to hack a voting software company as well as election officials' email accounts. Prosecutors did not say which federal agency victor worked for, but FBI agent Justin Garrick said in an affidavit filed with the court that she had previously served in the Air Force and held a top-secret security clearance.

On Facebook, Winner posted concerns about climate change and lamented that "people voted for a soulless ginger orangutan".

A trail of printing slipups led the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday to Winner's home, where they arrested the former Air Force linguist. A person familiar with the case said the charges stem from the document given to the Intercept.

Jim Lewis, who advises the US government on cybersecurity, spoke to CBS News about the worst-case scenario and whether the hackers were actually trying to affect the vote total.

Winner, 25, has been charged with sending to the news media a classified government report about Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. "I never termed her as a political activist at all, ever".

Winner's court-appointed attorney Titus Nichols said she plans to enter a not guilty plea Thursday.

Winner-Davis described her daughter as "passionate" about her beliefs.

The Project on Government Oversight said the prosecution of Ms. Winner offers "a number of lessons and considerations for sources and journalists who seek to anonymously disclose information". And this was a document that detailed the Russian efforts to penetrate the US election system, provides lots of specifics on the details trying to get into a company that makes election software, mailing emails to local election official. A Kremlin spokesman denied the report. He said Moscow categorically denies "the possibility" of the Russian government being behind it.

From last few weeks, one could hear about the leaks of the classified documents from National Security agency to the news sites.

USA officials still believe the vote total was not affected.

The Department of Justice says victor admitted to taking a "top secret" intelligence document, dated May 5, which details hacking by the Russian military intelligence.

"Because the NSA logs all printing jobs on its printers, it can use this to match up precisely who printed the document", Graham said in a blog post.
