I was wondering what might have been going on
The days preceding her search for the document.

Wonder what it was that triggered her?

Would be interesting to see what her search terms were.

She is either really stupid, wanted to get caught, or thinks she could get away with it and become some kind of hero.

Maybe some combination of the three.

The arrest affidavit said that 6 people had printed out the leaked document, but they had proof that Winner was in contact with the media, and then she admitted that she sent it. I wonder if others in the organization saw the document, and decided to entice the young, naive newbie to do the dirty work. It might be possible that one of the other 5 was previously the source of leaks, but got nervous with the recent investigations.

So we are expected to believe that the NSA does not compartmentalize intelligence? As redacted, there is nothing in the document that readers of the New York Times or Wired did not already know. The difference? It is now not "unnamed sources," it is a "stolen" document.

From what I gather, her clearance level was sufficient to access the document, but it was outside the scope of her duties/responsibilities and thus she didn't have a "need to know," in regards to the content even though her clearance level was sufficient to access the document.

In regards to compartmentalization, you will have to ask someone who is familiar with this from an experienced position as I do not know how that sort of thing works.

Maybe a coworker talking about how this info should be sent to the press and she decides to do it.

I suppose her anti Trump stance and the Russians helped him may have got the best of her.

There seems to be a disconnect there on her part.
Also she left her social media wide open,
strange that, like she was not afraid. But then
when arrested was "afraid".

Good point.

Could be some of them had a need to know, unlike her.

I love how some people see conspiracies everywhere... until the conspiracy puts them on the wrong side.

There are four types of servers the government uses:

1. Unclassified, or in the military, nipernet.

2. Secret, or in the military, sipernet.

3. Top Secret

4. Top Secret/SCI

When I worked for the DoD, we had access to all networks, including the NSA network.

They have their own version of goggle on the classified networks, chat rooms, etc. Not that much different from the network you are using to reach ATS.

We used to be on NSA net all the time during mid shift when things got slow.

But you always get that reminder when logging onto the network that it was government use only and you consent to being monitored.

A report that she will be entering a not guilty plea.


www.npr.org...

Obviously with that comes the denial that her actions
were linked to The Intercept.

Great information!

I found these comments from a person at Fort Gordon interesting.



Former NSA worker and current Information Security Consultant Brandon Mccrillis is focusing on her missteps. "In the case of Ms. Winner she accessed the documents through digital certificates like a digital access badge, viewed it, sent it to the printer, printed this off, we see the digital footprint on the logs on the network and then we actually see the actual document that "The Intercept"scanned, paper," said Principal Information Security Consultant Brandon McCrillis. McCrillis says within the paper document there is a matrix code that is pretty much invisible to the human eye. McCrillis says it's a clue left behind. "In that scan we can actually figure out the printer it was printed from and the time and the date," said McCrillis. "I would think someone who is trying to do this in a more espionage type, I am going to be spy capacity would take more caution in trying to cover their tracks," said McCrillis.

I like alot of those points, apparently the deep state state are masters of deception and must not be underestimated.

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but this is very interesting:

Prosecutors: Contractor accused of leaking docs wanted to 'burn the White House down'


Federal prosecutors detailed Winner's alleged plans to burn down the White House and travel to Afghanistan, pledging her allegiance to the Taliban.


WTF? This is just....bizarre.

ETA:

Updated source: HuffPo

Apparently these were found in notebooks in her house.

Scary, if true (Especially that we now know she wanted to burn down the WH):



Ohh also not to scare anyone Winner had access to missile defense systems.

Clearly, she would be a target for our Advesaries!

Read she is thought to have downloaded
to a thumb drive while in The Air Force.

Smh...

This gal is a real wildcard.




Based on evidence seized from her home, federal prosecutors detailed Winner's alleged plans "to burn down the White House" and travel to Afghanistan, pledging her allegiance to the Taliban according to Atlanta's Channel 2 News.





Behind the scenes, Winner was even more conniving than her actions revealed: prosecutors said in recorded jailhouse calls, she told her mother how to play her side of the story in the media, as someone who was scared she’d disappear from an interrogation room in her Augusta home after Saturday’s raid.
In other words, the mother's heartfelt appeal was scripted by Reality herself. It wasn't just her mother: the prosecution added that in a phone call to her sister expressed her confidence in how to play the court during her bond hearing. “I’m pretty, white and cute,” she allegedly told her sister. Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.

Nothing trigger HER...SHE decided something was important enough in her mind to choose these actions. It is HER fault. Not some outside source.

Geeez!
