"Ms. Winner, who entered her plea in Federal District Court in Augusta, Ga., was arrested last June and accused of sharing a classified report about Russian interference in the 2016 election with the news media."

which is here:

TL;DR

She released a classified document detailing how the Russians went about hacking election systems.

... one of the first whistle blowers about the trDump/Russian treason connection. Rosie mentioned Ms. Winner was the first to mention any thing about Russia/Putin/trDump she stuck her neck out to inform us - the media totally ignores her - while she rots in jail.

Rosie told Ari Melber the media should be ashamed they ignore her - the media could help her greatly if they gave this young twenty something woman some media exposure about why she felt she needed to reveal the information about the intelligence intercepts she heard while employed at her privatized Intel gathering contractor's office campus.

Ari listened intently when Rosie mentioned this. Sort of raised his eyebrows that Rosie was so blunt after having been invited on his show. Then Ari nodded his head yes the media could and should help this forgotten young woman.

Maybe Ari will pick up the ball and run with it and finally give Ms. Reality Winner the media exposure she so badly needs to bring attention to her situation rather than let her languish in silence and suffer alone for acting the hero to reveal and expose Team trDump Treason.

Ms. Reality Winner should be thanked by America for her patriotic act to inform and warn about danger trDump brings to the process and experiment we call our evolving DEMOCRACY.

duped into leaking a fake document that was to be used to (hopefully) bring her and others journalists on the left down? From what I recall, that fake document was delivered to The Rachel Maddow Show as a purported leak. And Winner's manipulators left her out in the blizzard without clothes?
