CLASSIFIED REPORT

Leaking Classified NSA Information



Billie Winner-Davis, Reality Winner's mother, told Business Insider on Tuesday that President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is attempting legal representation to aid the former Air Force language analyst contractor and Kingsville native Reality Winner with her case.

Winner pleaded guilty in 2018 to leaking classified National Security Agency information on Russia's alleged efforts to interfere with the 2016 election. She was found guilty of violating the U.S. Espionage Act and sentenced to five years in prison at the Federal Medical Center-Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas.

In 2016 following her separation from six years of active duty, Winner was hired by Pluribus International Corporation under an NSA contract to work out of Fort Gordon, Georgia.

According to ABC News, Winner printed a classified report detailing how Russian hackers allegedly “executed cyber espionage operations” on local election systems and mailed the documents to The Intercept.

She was arrested on June 3, 2017.


Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign violations and tax fraud in 2018, began serving his sentence in May 2019 at the federal penitentiary in Otisville, New York.

He has been under house arrest since July over coronavirus concerns.

Military.com stated that Reality’s mother sent a Twitter message that said “Cohen has asked another attorney to look at the case and for opportunities to help.”

What Is A Vanguard Class Submarine

(Reference For Next Article)

Tactical Weapon System and Submarine Command System The tactical weapon system is used to "fight the boat" and has three functions:

to avoid detection
provide self-protection
to enable effective communications


Hms Vengeance was the last of the Vanguard Class. Commissioned in November 1999, this trident ballistic missile submarine still protects Britain's interests today.The Submarine Command System (SMCS) is the "brain" of the tactical weapon system, controlling and co-ordinating its constituent parts. It receives information from the various sensors, analyse the data presents it to the ship's Commanding Officer in a format, which enables him to make informed tactical decisions. Once this is done, the command system provides the means with which to "fight," including the preparation, launch and guidance of tactical weapons.

Awesome destructive power

The Vanguard can deploy the American-made Trident II D5 nuclear ballistic missiles from the 16 missile tubes. Within each missile, it has up to 12 multiple independently targeted re-entry vehicles (MIRVs), each having a yield of up to 120 kilotons. That would mean that each MIRV has at least eight times the destructive power of the A-bomb that was dropped at Hiroshima. However, due to treaty limitations, only eight MIRVs are carried. With the end of the Cold War, the total number of warheads per vessel was further reduced to 48. Though the nuclear weapons are American in origin, the United States does not have any veto rights over the use of British nuclear weapons.


The Trident II missile has the capability of pulverizing a target up to 12,000 km away. Due to its Mark 6 star sight aided inertial guidance system, the missile has a circle of equal probability of 120 metres, which is the radius of the circle within which half the strikes will impact. With such lethality and accuracy, it is no wonder the weapon serves as a powerful deterrence against any potential nuclear-armed enemy Britain may face.

Given the value of the SSBN, it also has to protect itself from attack submarines and anti-submarine warships. It has to depend on the Type 2046 towed sonar array and the hull-mounted Type 2043 search sonar which will warn the submarine of submerged and surface threats. It will use its stealthy capability to avoid detection.

However, if attacking the enemy target becomes necessary, the Vanguard has four 533mm torpedo tubes, which can launch Spearfish torpedoes. The Spearfish, a heavy acoustic homing torpedo which can be used against submarines or ships, utilises the latest in torpedo technology. The computer in the torpedo makes its own tactical decisions during an engagement, optimising the available homing modes to the underwater environment and the target's use of decoys and manoeuvring patterns.

The Spearfish has a significantly higher speed of 81 knots compared to contemporary torpedoes. This is targeted against high-speed Russian submarines like the Alfa. It has an impressive range of 23km at high speed and 54km at low speed. With a 300kg directed energy warhead, no submarine - even those with double hull construction like the Russian Oscar and Typhoon SSBNs - can survive a hit. Other than hard-kill options, the submarine has two SSE Mark 10 launchers which can deploy anti-torpedo decoys.
