This boys and girls is why there are so many anonymous sources. Its really really easy to figure out when people leak documents instead of just words.

The information released is long on supposition and inuendo but woefully short of facts.

Just enough to get left MSM salivating on their own preconceived fantasies of "Muh Russians"

Problem is there is no there, there.


Which is probably the greatest reason to believe she was set up in accordance with her publicly stated views. The intial leak had everyone all worked up... only to have it all dashed when she was arrested. No one knows if the NSA report was genuine or just created for this very purpose. (Well, someone knows -- but not us!) I'm leaning toward a canary trap: Whisper something in someone's ear and see if it becomes public and if it does you know who the leak is.


Ms. Winner won the "patsy" award hands down.


Pretty much! But she made herself the patsy.


That's a pretty good theory.
This exactly the kind of bait they would dangle to see what they catch.

A two day trip to Belize... Right after the leak.
Hmmmmmm


Court documents also note a two-day trip Winner took to Belize May 27, though an agent wrote it's unknown what the purpose was or what she did while abroad. Winner had notified the agency in March of her intent to travel to Belize, the document adds. An agent spoke to Winner at her Augusta home on June 3.

The saddest part -- if true -- is that she walked right into it. There have been soooooooo many leaks that anyone so inclined to leak should expect that there would be efforts (tricks) to discover who the leaks are... and even worse, the Trump admin has outright stated as much so she had to know that!

This combination of ignorance and arrogance is so prevalent today... and so dangerous... and it scares me.

Here is why they busted her:


The report described two cyberattacks by Russia’s military intelligence unit, the G.R.U. — one in August against a company that sells voter registration-related software and another, a few days before the election, against 122 local election officials.

Source.

Now do you understand why all of the evidence that shows wrongdoing by Trump and his associates comes from "unnamed sources?" Trump is using the Department of Justice to punish whistleblowers.


Shes a criminal not a whistleblower. A whistleblowers will expose stuff done Illegally and not go to jail for it.
She has exposed things done legally and as such is a criminal under current law. not to mention breaking her contract of employment.

Looks like it, what is really interesting
Wikileaks just put up a 10k reward for
the name of the Intercept reporter that
Perhaps unintentionally gave her identity
away.

ETA: I'm thinking the timing of the Intercept
Article is really suspect now.

And still no official name vouching for the
Intercept "leak"



Can i turn myself in for the 10,000? Since i woudnt be going to jail and no one has the balls to come looking for me in person its a win win.Anyone who does coem looking will be looking up at the sky if they do.

There is not really anything new in this leaked document.
News reports from September and October of last year show
These same reports.

And Trump collusion is not in the leaked document,
So how does that relate?

So the Intercept basically outed her by showing the original material to the NSA.


When reporters at The Intercept approached the National Security Agency on June 1 to confirm a document that had been anonymously leaked to the publication in May, they handed over a copy of the document to the NSA to verify its authenticity. When they did so, the Intercept team inadvertently exposed its source because the copy showed fold marks that indicated it had been printed—and it included encoded watermarking that revealed exactly when it had been printed and on what printer.

NSA takes doc from Intercept and notes fold marks meaning it's a pic/scan of a print.

Who will trust the intercept again with material.


The U.S. Government Agency conducted an internal audit to determine who accessed the intelligence reporting since its publication. The U.S. Government Agency determined that six individuals printed this reporting. WINNER was one of these six individuals.

A further audit of the six individuals' desk computers revealed that WINNER had e-mail contact with the News Outlet. The audit did not reveal that any of the other individuals had e-mail contact with the News Outlet


Used her work computer to email. Yeah buddy.

Apparently this aspect of the story is heating up
as we speak. Wikileaks just called again for the
Naming of the reporter.

One has to ask, why did they "pick" her leak
To out to the NSA?

Since when did they start trying to verify "real" leaks?

Smacks of a set up.

The Intercept was launched in 2014 initially for the purposes of publishing documents released by Edward Snowden.


So, poor execution and dumbassery or a trap from the next leaker?

It is also of interest to note that there seems to
be some undercutting of USA here on thier part.

Something I have noticed since the Trump dossier
Came into existence and The Steele character.

Just my two cents

Given it's financed by a rich ebay guy, I am a bit suspicious.

I try to keep an open mind.

To thier credit, it could be that they were set up, they
have been better than most outlets in vetting sources.

And to thier credit they were skeptical of the
Steele Dossier.

Is this new info?

NYT made a correction today:

www.nytimes.com...


Correction: June 6, 2017
The headline on an earlier version of this article incorrectly described the charge that Reality Leigh Winner is facing. It is for leaking, not espionage.

Yep.

And her Twitter shows she was on the same outrage page
over the animal abuse sttory. In a small coincidence,
(Or not coincidence) The intercept was running stories
on that as well.

I think her two day trip to Belize could yield a few
other things. Sure the FBI is on it. Hopefully.
