Russian hackers attacked at least one U.S. voting software supplier days before last year's presidential election, according to a classified government intelligence report leaked on Monday that suggests election-related hacking penetrated further into United States voting systems than previously known.
Victor was arrested two days before the publication of The Intercept report, although the news outlet said it had contacted the NSA and the Director of National Intelligence before the story went out.
The Intercept contacted NSA and the national intelligence director's office about the document and both agencies asked that it not be published.
A few days ago, based on her apparent Instagram account, Reality Winner was prepping vegan meals and thinking about her weightlifting goals. She was scheduled to appear before a federal judge Thursday for a detention hearing.
The comments from Warner, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, came one day after The Interceptreported on a top-secret National Security Agency document that said hackers associated with Russia's military intelligence agency targeted a company with information on U.S. voting software days before the election. Many of her political posts take aim at President Trump and his administration.
Winner's attorney, Titus Thomas Nichols, declined to say whether victor leaked those documents to The Intercept.
The NSA also conducted an internal audit to find out that six people had printed out the secret report - but only victor had been in touch with The Intercept by email through her work computer. Victor went to the military soon after graduating from high school.
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.
FBI investigators are not investigating alleged NSA leaker Reality Winner for any activity while she was stationed in Maryland, the agency confirms. "She's got a good heart". Above a photo of her sitting pensively in front of a Mayan pyramid in Belize, she wrote, "There is nothing that can fix the hole in my heart that you left behind".
Davis, who appeared shaken and was hesitant to talk to the press, said he and Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, were still "trying to get a grasp" of what's happened.
"I know my daughter". It said she printed and removed the document on or about May 9 and passed it on to a news outlet. "She served with distinction in one of the highest classified jobs in the Air Force". "The same is true of the FBI's claims about how it came to arrest Winner", The Interceptsaid in a statement on its website. Victor asked if her mother and stepfather, who live in Texas, would travel to Georgia to help feed her cat. "Mainly she was concerned about her cat", Winner-Davis said.
On social media, victor mostly shared glimpses into her life far removed from politics - such as watching Dr Who with her cat and serving her family a vegetarian meal of barbecued jackfruit. Although, since Donald Trump's upset election win, there were several instances when victor took to the social media to air her political views.
But according to the NSA report, evidence that the hackers were also stealing the login credentials of people with administrative access to the voter-registration systems raises concerns that the Russians were able to do "anything they wanted" - including, Bardin said, breaching voting machines.
But Winner's Facebook page does mention reaching out to senator David Perdue, a Georgia Republican, after Trump nominated Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency, according to AP.
And in an angry reply to a report that Trump said he wasn't hearing complaints about building the Dakota Access oil pipeline, victor wrote on Facebook: "I'm losing my mind".
The Intercept piece is quite technical, but Vox's Timothy B. Lee breaks down the main point you need to know about why the Russians might have done this.
She reportedly has a Twitter account, @Reezlie, under the name Sara Winners, which her attorney could not confirm was hers.
The account "liked" tweets by Edward Snowden, WikiLeaks and so-called "rogue" government accounts, as well as various journalists and politicians.
