First "Leaker" Of Classified Information Caught
« on: June 06, 2017, 07:06:09 AM »
Well the first "leaker" of classified information has been caught -

Reality Leigh Winner (25) a former member of the US Air Force and a civilian contractor since Feb 2017 has admitted to downloading and distributing to the media top secret information.

I'd say 10 years of hard labor at The United States Penitentiary, Leavenworth should provide an adequate deterrent for others considering violating their patriotic obligations

Why.

Incorrect - her alleged mistake was using an unsafe email service ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Clinton_email_controversy

This "Reality Winner" character will likely do 3 years although like Shakespeare I would prefer 10 years.

HRC is apparently untouchable due to her long ties to the US "Intelligence" community. She also has long ties in the service of another government, making her even more "untouchable".

Hillary should hang for Treason but barring that life in prison would be acceptable.

For those who don't know "Reality" and "Winner" are fake names to protect her family although now she's been outed someone will figure out who that is.

Are you incredibly dumb or do you not realize that an unsecured server is easily penetrated by foreign governments? You can be 100% certain that both Russia and China obtained every single one of Hillary's emails.

Markje is correct, Moby wrong, as usual.  :coffeeread:

Clinton's man Podesta stupidly fell for a phishing scheme and hacked himself.

Concerning Clinton's private e-mail server?  I think a couple years in jail won't do her any harm either.

But "this" woman - a traitor by it's most basic definition deserves the maximum sentence the law provides.

True.

But the REALLY illegal thing she did was to delete 30,000 emails that were actually part of the public record.  Once she made the decision to use a private server she lost the ability to judge what was and what was not a "government record" See 44 U.S.C. Chapter 31.

Why?  Perhaps she violated a few laws?  This has nothing to do with Clinton

It certainly can't hurt her.

While I am not certain exactly what Mr. Winner leaked.

I think one needs to understand that some one who decides to go outside the 'whistle blower' circuit is far different than what it 'seems' RLW did. If one needs the protection afforded by Russian or a Central American embassy because you showed some politicians and unelected public officials to be parasites and traitors so be it. And thank you!

At the very least we will have a slew of new cartoons from the usual suspects.
