Reality Winner, Air Force vet who studied yoga in Baltimore, thrust to center of Russian hacking co

Ellicott City yoga instructor Keith Golden thinks of Reality Leigh Winner as a dedicated student who works hard and a compassionate person who cares deeply for animals and people.

On Tuesday, Golden opened a text from a friend telling him to look up Winner online. He learned that his 25-year-old former student had been charged with giving reporters a top-secret National Security Agency file about Russian attempts to interfere in last year's election.


Winner, an NSA contractor and Air Force veteran who was stationed recently in Maryland, is the third community professional in their 20s with ties to Maryland accused in recent years of leaking classified documents to the media.

The case, like those of Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning before it, could offer a glimpse at what some analysts say is an emerging problem for the intelligence community: young workers who are granted security clearances, discover classified information they find objectionable, and take their concerns to the public.

1. An NSA contractor? What does the FBI have against hiring fellow federal employees?

And was she named after a race horse?

3. The news reports state that she is a master linguist in a variety of obscure languages.


She apparently possesses that rare gift of learning, absorbing, and fluently communicating in multiple languages, some of which are obscure and possibly used by actors with evil intentions.

10. There aren't enough people

In the federal gvt. to do all the work that has to be done.

I worked as a contractor for the USAF and Army Signal Corps.

She had a much higher clearance than I had.

5. Yeah, how do you get a name like that?

I mean, sure, the surname I guess you have to inherit, but if your parents already know that they've got a "snap my ass with a towel in P.E." last name, why give your child a first name that practically guarantees abuse??

13. Unlike Snowden

Winner didn't run into Putins arms.

She exposed his plot.
