Julian Assange: Alleged NSA Leaker ‘Must Be Supported’

2

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says that a 25-year-old government contracter accused of sharing National Security Agency (NSA) documents with a media outlet “must be supported.”

“Alleged NSA whistleblower Reality Leigh Winner must be supported,” he tweeted Monday alongside a picture of Winner. “She is a young woman accused of courage in trying to help us know.”

“It doesn’t matter why she did it or the quality [of] the report,” Assange added in a separate tweet. “Acts of non-elite sources communicating knowledge should be strongly encouraged.”
Prosecutors earlier Monday announced that the Department of Justice had charged Winner with sharing top secret material with a media outlet. Read more at The Hill.

  1. If the media doesn’t report the truth, where should the public informed the truth from, especially about government corruption? It’s only thanks to Julian Assange’s leaks, thanks to Seth Rich, that we ended up with such a great president and not with the witch Clinton. Keep up your good word, Julian. We need to honor you with the greatest award. May there be many more whistleblowers like you and Edward Snowden to wake up the people from their media slumber.
