The Democrats are freaking out!
President Trump has cracked into the deep state network and exposed traitor leakers.
Deep state actors have hindered the ability of President Trump to govern by constantly leaking classified information to the press. The White House has started to crack down on the leakers and the first traitor, Reality Leigh Winner, was arrested last night. (via CNN)
Reality Winner, a 25-year-old defense contractor for Pluribus International Corporation, was arrested late last night for disseminating classified information to the left-wing website The Intercept.
According to the criminal complaint filed in a U.S. District Court in Georgia, Reality Winner has been charged with transmitting defense information and faces up to 10 years in prison per count.
Reality Winner transmitted a classified National Security Agency (NSA) document investigating a failed attempt by the Russian government to hack a voting system. The leak was the basis of an Intercept article published last week.
The government became aware of the leak after reporters at The Intercept attempted to verify the authenticity of the classified material. The NSA asked the FBI for assistance and quickly found Winner.
The leaked document was tracked back to Winner, who apparently printed the document out at work and was able to sneak it out of the office by folding it into her pocket.
Winner was the only one with access to the document who was also in communication with reporters at The Intercept. Winner was not considered “need to know” and had no reason to access the sensitive material.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein weighed in on the important arrest, stating, “Releasing classified material without authorization threatens our nation’s security and undermines public faith in government. People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation.”
Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz condemned the leak, saying, “Just because you see something that is classified, you can’t just hand that out like it’s candy.” Representative Chaffetz explained that there is a right and wrong way to expose illegal government activity.
However, Reality Winner was clearly not attempting to draw attention to government malfeasance and was purely hoping to damage the reputation of President Trump.
We should expect to see more arrests in the coming days as the FBI hones in on additional sources of illegal leaks. GOOD. Let’s get that swamp drained!
