Woman Charged In Leaking Document Denied Bail

Reality Leigh Winner, the government contractor charged with leaking classified information, has been denied bail after it was revealed that she also downloaded classified information from a computer with a thumb drive. Nobody knows where the thumb drive is currently located.

Further, Winner reportedly told her sister that she would play the "pretty, white, and cute" card to avoid getting in trouble for sharing "pretty important documents." She also said that she planned on "going nuclear" if she's denied bail, in order to receive similar treatment as Chelsea Manning.

Winner faces up to 10 years in prison. She's the first to be charged under the Espionage Act during Trump's presidency.
