Federal Bureau of Investigation seizes documents, computers from home of Augusta contractor

Galeno Paniagua | 08 Junio, 2017, 17:36

Victor was arrested Saturday and the case was revealed Monday, shortly after the website the Intercept posted a redacted version of a USA intelligence document describing Russian government efforts to use hacking techniques against employees of a company that provides technical support to states' voting agencies.

In the weeks leading up to last year's presidential election, Russian military intelligence launched a cyberattack on a USA voting systems manufacturer, according to a classified National Security Agency report obtained by The Intercept.

Russian hackers attacked at least one US voting software supplier days before last year's presidential election, according to a government intelligence report leaked Monday that suggests election-related hacking penetrated further into USA voting systems than previously known.

The intelligence document was published by online news outlet The Intercept, just hours before the Justice Department announced charges against a 25-year-old government contractor named Reality Winner for leaking the information.

According to the leaked document, which was dated May 5, Russia's Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) allegedly launched an attack in August 2016 against a U.S. company "evidently to obtain information on elections-related software and hardware solutions".

United Kingdom to vote in general election
Pollsters still expect Ms May's Conservatives to win, although talk of a landslide majority of more than 100 seats has faded. But the general elections are not expected to cause Britain to reverse its plans to leave the European Union .

According to court documents, victor had a top-security clearance as an active-duty member of the Air Force from January 2013 until February of this year, when she began working for Pluribus International Corporation, a government contractor, at a facility in Georgia.

The Intercept did not reveal victor as its source, but a trail of clues, including a crease mark on a printout of the classified document sent to the NSA, led authorities to name her as a suspect. "The Intercept has no knowledge of the identity of the source", she said. Somewhat technologically proficient people, especially officials within the intelligence community like the NSA, are able to analyze the configuration of the extremely faint marks and precisely determine when and where the documents were printed, according to Robert Graham, a cybersecurity expert.

In her interview with NBC News, her mother said she has "difficulty believing that she actually did what they're saying that she did". It depicted a hacking operation tied closely to Moscow's GRU intelligence directorate that targeted private United States companies providing voter registration services and equipment to local governments.

The document did not name any state.

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard 'would consider' Real Madrid offer
Hazard was instrumental to Chelsea's success this season, scoring 16 goals along the way to his side's Premier League triumph. Batshuayi is fully aware of how important Hazard is for both club and country, as a domestic and worldwide team-mate.

The government claims that victor downloaded and printed a top-secret NSA report, removed the printed version of the report from her employer's premises, and then mailed it to The Intercept, a highly regarded worldwide media outlet that exposes government wrongdoing.

Interestingly, 18 U.S.C. Section 793 (e) is one of the statues that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin are alleged to have violated in the course of the Clinton email scandal.

Winner's court-appointed attorney Titus Nichols said she plans to enter a not guilty plea Thursday.

A second official confirmed The Intercept document was authentic and did not dispute that the charges were directly tied to it.

Reality Winner's mug shot. "She's a good person with no criminal history who is caught in a political whirlwind". A further audit of the six individuals' desk computers revealed that victor had e-mail contact with the News Outlet. Winner, it alleges, was one of them. Victor further admitted removing the classified intelligence reporting from her office, retaining it, and mailing it from Augusta to the news outlet.
