Feds: Reality Winner Wanted to Burn the White House Down and Join the Taliban
Reality Winner, the Bernie-supporting, Trump-hating social justice warrior who was charged with leaking classified documents to The Intercept, apparently wanted to be an Islamic terrorist, according to evidence seized from her home. Winner allegedly stole the classified material from her employer, Pluribus International, an Augusta, Georgia-based defense contractor that does work for the NSA.
Prosecutors at a federal detention hearing Thursday afternoon in Augusta claimed that Winner had plans not only to burn down the White House but also to travel to Afghanistan and pledge her allegiance to the Taliban.
According to WSB-TV, the feds seized hand-written notes from Winner's home that expressed a desire to burn down the White House and travel to terror hot-spots to meet terrorist leaders.
"There was a particular interest in Pakistan and Afghanistan," WSB reported. "They recorded jailhouse ... phone calls to her mother where she sort of coached her on how to play sympathy in the media."
Winner reportedly coached her mother to say she was "scared" that she would "disappear" after she was interrogated on Saturday.
Prosecutors said a phone call to her sister expressed her confidence in how to play the court during her bond hearing.
“I’m pretty, white and cute,” she allegedly told her sister. Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.
The government believes those who knew Winner best did not know an alternate side of her, who confessed to wanting to do harm to the nation through the release of classified documents.
Channel 2’s Nicole Carr spoke to Winner’s parents Thursday morning.
“She offered up her life for this nation and to see her treated so vilely is an insult to every person who’s ever worn a uniform,” Winner’s father, Gary Davis, said.
Winner has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a single count, but the government said it would likely add to the indictment.
The 25-year-old entered a not-guilty plea. The judge denied bond after prosecutors argued that Winner could be recruited by the nation’s enemies if she were released on bail.
As PJ Media reported Tuesday, according to her online social media accounts, Winner appears to be a far-left supporter of "the Resistance," Black Lives Matter, the Women's March, and the Islamic Society of North America, in addition to other left-wing causes. Her social media footprint also indicated that she despises President Trump and supports Bernie Sanders.
Now it appears that she is an Islamic terrorist supporter, as well.
