I'm a bit confused here Rich.  Maybe you could explain what you meant just a bit more.

This from the Republicans running the DOJ, the same party that thought it was just peachy for Dick cheney to rat out an ACTIVE CIA agent and put all her contacts into deadly perle in order to conceal jrbush's lies that got us into our never-ending wars in the mideast. Now they prosecute someone who tried to warn us about Trump's "connections" (aka a leash) to Russia.

 

Not in favor of those who disclose secrets, but sometimes politicians (lately they've all been Republicans) use classifications to conceal crimes, not the national interest, like in this case.

From the article.......

 

"Winner, who has been locked up without bail for the past year, railed on social media against President Trump, whom she called a “soulless ginger orangutan,” three months before her arrest.

She also expressed her desire to “burn the White House Down” and said, “Look, I only say I hate America like 3 times a day.”

 

Raised in Kingsville, Texas, Winner enlisted in the Air Force, where she served as a translator, speaking Farsi and Arabic. She provided real-time translations to Americans conducting field missions.

 

After leaving the military, she moved to Augusta and worked as a civilian contractor for the NSA, translating documents from Farsi to English for the agency."

NSA Contractor Gets 5 Years

NSA Contractor Gets Five Years in Prison for Leaking Report


AUGUSTA, Ga. — A former government contractor who pleaded guilty to leaking U.S. secrets about Russia's attempts to hack the 2016 presidential election was sentenced Thursday to five years and three months in prison.


It was the sentence that prosecutors had recommended — the longest ever for a federal crime involving leaks to the news media.


The crime carried a maximum penalty of 10 years.


Winner, 26, who was a contractor with the National Security Agency, pleaded guilty in June to copying a classified report that detailed the Russian government's efforts to penetrate a Florida-based voting software supplier.


Instead of being recognized as a conscience-driven whistleblower whose disclosure helped protect U.S. elections, Winner was prosecuted with vicious resolve by the Justice Department under the Espionage Act.
