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.”

Super Hacker Fights Extradition (Video)

June 16, 2008

If Gary McKinnon loses this appeal, he would be the first British hacker extradited to the U.S. He could face up to 60 years in prison.

Gary McKinnon told the highest court in the land that he was the victim of an oppressive prosecution by US authorities who had abused British law by trying to force him into a plea bargain.

Mr McKinnon, 44, a systems analyst, is accused of causing $475,000 worth of damage by gaining access to 97 computer systems belonging to the Pentagon, Nasa and the US military.

He claims he was only looking for evidence that America had concealed the existence of UFOs.

One of his attacks happened immediately after Sept 11 and targeted the Earle Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey, shutting down its computer system for a week.

Mr McKinnon was caught after some of the software used in the attacks was traced back to his girlfriend's e-mail account.

His lawyer David Pannick QC told five Law Lords that it would be an abuse of extradition proceedings to send Mr McKinnon to the US because of the way US authorities had behaved.

Mr McKinnon had been warned by the US that, unless he agreed to plead guilty, he faced a life sentence rather than a couple of years in jail, Mr Pannick said.

The threats from US authorities also included one from New Jersey prosecutors that Mr McKinnon "would fry", said Mr Pannick.

If Mr McKinnon refused a plea bargain then the matter could be treated as a terrorism case which could result in a 60-year sentence in a US maximum security prison if he was found guilty, the Law Lords were told.

Mr McKinnon, also known as "Solo", is alleged to have carried out the hacking from his home in north London. He was arrested in 2002 but never charged in the UK.

Later that year the US government indicted him and began extradition proceedings in 2005.

Former Home Secretary John Reid granted the US request and Mr McKinnon began his court battle.

Last year his lawyers argued at the High Court in London that he had been subjected to "improper threats" and the extradition would breach his human rights but two judges said they could find no grounds for appeal.

Mr McKinnon has never denied that he accessed the computer networks of a wide number of US military institutions between February 2001 and March 2002.

He has always maintained that he was motivated by curiosity and that he only managed to get into the networks because of lax security.

Mr Pannick told the Law Lords: "It is not in dispute that the courts enjoy a power to refuse to extradite alleged offenders under the Extradition Act if the court considers there has been an abuse of process.

"The US prosecutors sought to impose pressure on the appellant, through his legal advisors, to consent to extradition and plead guilty."

Mr McKinnon was told if he co-operated he would receive a lesser sentence of between 37 to 46 months and be repatriated to the UK where he would enjoy the benefits of the UK parole system, Mr Pannick said.

He said: "By contrast, the appellants representatives were told that if he declined to co-operate this sentence would be in the region of eight to ten years, possibly longer. This was pressure of an unacceptable degree."

Mr Pannick also said the US authorities had indicated that charges involving "significantly damaging national security" would not be pursued if McKinnon co-operated.

Clare Montgomery QC, representing the Home Secretary, is arguing that no threats were made against Mr McKinnon by the US authorities and the extradition should therefore go ahead.

A judgment is expected within three weeks.

1. McKinnon is NOT a "super hacker", he merely exploited PUBLISHED security holes in Windows that Microsoft would not fix.

2. If someone shows you where your security holes are, did they help you or did they "damage" you? These imaginary monetary values are a standard tactic that US prosecutors use to get their way by making things sound 1000 times worse than they really are.

3. Why is US military brass telling every lie they can invent to get their hands on this kid? Does it have something to do with the fact that he "knows too much" now?

4. The information McKinnon saw was about a secret space program, including spaceships and a secret astronaut corps. How do you shut him up? Can you say MK-ULTRA?

British citizens should protest this guys extradition; the CIA is going to scramble his brains like they did to those guys in Guantanamo--and he won't even REMEMBER what they did to him! If they can do this to him they can do it to YOU! What if a hacker uses your computer? You could wind up in a secret US prison with no access to the outside world!
