Alleged NSA leaker Reality Winner denied bail

A judge has scheduled a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court to determine whether to allow victor to be released on bond pending trial.

"She was very scared", Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told Cooper.

"She's got a good heart", Winner-Davis said.

Reality Winner faces a detention hearing Thursday in federal court in Augusta, Georgia, so that a judge can determine whether to grant bond for the 25-year-old woman. She has been jailed in neighboring Lincoln County since her arrest, according to a booking report released by the sheriff.

Gary Davis said his stepdaughter isn't a flight risk.

Solari countered that Winner's political agenda mattered more to her than her oath to protect secrets entrusted to her, adding that she might be tempted to flee if further charges were brought in the continuing investigation. She's never run away from anything in her life. On Instagram, she primarily posted selfies from the gym and pictures of food, while on Twitter she rarely posted about herself, focusing more on politics - behavior not uncommon for people who use both social networks.

Solari said victor also confessed to her mother during a recorded jailhouse phone call, saying: "Mom, those documents".

"No...you know, for obvious reasons, she didn't share what she did", Winne-Davis noted.

Shortly after the release of the report by The Intercept on Monday, the Justice Department announced it had charged government contractor, Reality Leigh Winner, in Georgia with leaking a classified report containing "Top Secret level" information to an online news organization.

SC Rep. Trey Gowdy Tapped for House Oversight Chairman
While the oversight panel regularly took on IT issues under Chaffetz's watch, Gowdy doesn't have a lengthy record on federal tech. The House Republican Conference will vote on his nomination Tuesday, when his position will be made official.

She is accused of revealing classified information, used as the basis for an article published Monday by The Intercept, which detailed a classified National Security Agency memo.

Prosecutors argued victor had used a thumb drive to download classified documents while she was in the Air Force, CBS News' David Begnaud reports.

The Idaho Supreme Court has denied custody and visitation rights to a gay woman who raised a child with her former partner.

"I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law", he said in a statement. She "provided over 1,900 hours of enemy intelligence exploitation and assisted in geolocating 120 enemy combatants", the award said.

"If she made this mistake", Davis said, referring to the leaked documents, "it needs to be balanced against what she has done in the past and how she has served this country".

Rosie O'Donnell has donated $1,000 to a GoFundMe account set up on behalf of Reality Winner, the NSA contractor who was arrested for leaking classified information to the media. But the NSA has operated a $286 million complex in Augusta since 2012.

Though she was active on social media, victor doesn't appear to have discussed her work online.

She is the first person to be criminally charged with leaking classified information under the Trump administration, which has vowed to crack down on leaks.

Court records say victor admitted to mailing a copy of the classified report to a news outlet when an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent interviewed her at her home Saturday. They seized items including cellphones, computers and Winner's passport.
