AUSA: Mr. Schulte wrote he has incurred the wrath of his supervisor Karen. How was Karen?
CIA's Leonis: Karen cared so much about people. She'd walk the halls and ask you about your family... We asked Josh and Amol to go to the Employee Assistance Program

Judge Furman: If folks in the back could clear away from the doors, the jury will be entering in a moment... Ok, Mr. Denton.
AUSA Denton: Joshua Schulte is responsible for the largest leak in CIA history, and put officers at risk. When confronted, he lied.
AUSA Denton: He stole custom-built software used to track terorrists. Those filed were posted on Wikileaks. It was devastating. Operations came to a crashing halt. Allies wondered if their info could be leaked. The FBI sprang into action

Hahaha, sounds like 🇺🇸 good actors (No NOT #Anonymous who work for Russia) have hacked Russian state TV
It’s adorable that @KremlinRussia_E think that @US_Cybercom haven’t been inside their “proprietary internet” forever. There’s a very good reason #Vault7 was never investigated. It was an American honeypot that worked. Not a successful Russian attack on America.
Protip: members of TAO do not, in fact, “open an infected PDF on a home laptop” @e_kaspersky_ru, but hey, @US_Cybercom thanks you for the assist in loading a “malware sample” straight into Russian intelligence’s central mainframe 👍🏼

AUSA Comey: Ghislaine Maxwell touched three witnesses breasts. The defense tried to get you to look way through the massive amount of evidence Ms. Moe walked you through this morning [all slides and demonstratives withheld from public and Press]
AUSA Comey: You saw it in this exhibit [withheld] - who needs that many massages? She was in the room, she knew. The $30 million is "we molested kids together" money.

1. Day 2. Julian #Assange #ExtraditionHearing #UKHighCourtOfJustice.I'll report on it. In this extradition proceeding, the #USDoJ acts through the @CPSUK, challenging psychiatric evidence used by the judge Baraitser to deny extradition.There's an important info you have to know.
2.#CrownProsecutionService(#CPS) putting in question Julian #Assange's mental health: don't forget #CPS contributed to create the legal& diplomatic quagmire which kept #Assange arbitrarily detained 9 years and finally resulted in his arrest.This is how they looked at #JA's health
3. what I am trying to tell you is: when the Crown Prosecution Service (#CPS) tries to argue that the Julian #Assange's health is not in such a bad shape, hence he can be extradited, just consider how #CPS looked at his health. This is an official document from my #FOIA

Was digging through court records related to Vault 7 and found this tidbit. The FBI used the wifi at Starbucks to download the leak. #OBTS
If you want to better understand how government agencies, such as the CIA, create and use cyber tools, there are some helpful bits in the #Vault7 court records. Here's one example. #OBTS
Makes sense for the CIA (and others, really) to have a code library of basic components in a state that can be readily used. #Vault7 #OBTS

1. Rispondo a una domanda al giorno sul mio libro “Il Potere Segreto. Perché vogliono distruggere Julian #Assange e #WikLeaks”.
2. Ha paura di lavorare ai documenti segreti di #WikiLeaks e al caso ? Qualcuno mi ha fatto questa domanda
3. NO, NON ho paura di lavorare ai documenti segreti di #WikiLeaks e al caso. NESSUNO mi farà del male fisico. Ecco perché sento dovere di denunciare quello che hanno fatto a Julian #Assange e ai giornalisti di #WikiLeaks

THREAD:
1/ @wikileaks stated in its #Vault7 release that "the archive appears to have been circulated among former [USG] hackers and contractors". Lately I've been compiling a list of potential subjects including: Hal Martin, Michael Adams, "Carlo", and of course, Joshua Schulte.
2/ For all intents and purposes I believe that this Vault7 group at minimum has some overlap with the @shadowbrokerss (TSB) membership, given Wikileaks claimed to possess the NSA cyberweapons and that Adam Waldman was a US intermediary in both leaks.
3/ Furthermore, Assange was aware of people like Nghia Pho being under investigation for the TSB "theft", even though his role wasn't public until October 2017. Notice he was charged in 2015, but the "theft" was discovered in 2016. wsj.com/articles/russi… nytimes.com/2017/12/01/us/…

OK - here @sdnylive, in case of accused CIA #Vault7 leaker Josh Schulte, now a "Faretta hearing" on whether Schulte will be allowed to represent himself for his second trial. Inner City Press will live tweet, thread below. Song: soundcloud.com/innercitypress…
Judge Crotty: Usually it's better to have a lawyer, especially on these charges. But the choice is entirely yours, as long as you make it in a knowing fashion. Think hard about it. If you decide to represent yourself, I will appoint stand-by counsel.
Judge Crotty: You do not have the right to reject the stand-by counsel.
[In DDC, #insurrectionBlues defendant Pauline Bauer was *asked* if she would accept stand-by counsel. Same issue arose there this morning with Brandon Fellows:

Educate: Where did the US Military confiscate the Dominion Server? In Frankfurt of course. The same server was used by Democrats to cheat in the 2018 election, and why we ended up with democrats winning the house, the squad,, and other impossibilities. @POTUS @FLOTUS @GenFlynn 👇 ImageImageImageImage
And cheating they will continue. Problem is, they got caught!!!WikiLeaks Mar 7, 2017- CIA tips for its hackers going to the covert CIA hacking base hidden in the US consulate in Frankfurt #Vault7 @DonaldJTrumpJr @RudyGiuliani @RichardGrenell @PressSec @EricTrump @IvankaTrump 👇 ImageImageImageImage
WikiLeaks documents reveal CIA agents were given cover identities and diplomatic passports to enter the country. The base was used to develop hacking tools as part of the CIA's massive digital arsenal. @TiffanyATrump @EmeraldRobinson @TuckerCarlson👇👇

According to a declassified report, the #CIA's hacking unit failed to secure its own systems, which resulted in the loss of the #Vault7 hacking tools: washingtonpost.com/national-secur…

Count on the US oligarchy to blame others for their own crimes. Although in the age of Trump their stories do have a habit of not always adding up:

January 28th US arrests a Harvard professor working on Nano Viral medicines, this as cases in Wuhan rose uncontrollably. 👇

We know US Intel had and was sharing numerous reports internally and with allies predicting this would be a worldwide pandemic in November. But under current management you just can't make deals with these guys without expecting a knife in your back. ImageImageImageImage

Not that it necessarily matters who's in charge of oversight into an agency that includes operatives accused of war crimes, that will literally hack their own oversight officials.

Judge Crotty read the rule on mistrials, gave each side a chance to be heard. Zas for Schulte said he consents to mistrial on the other charges. AUSA Laroche objected...

Currently in Judge Crotty's courtroom 14C: Schulte's lawyers Shroff and Zas are where the Marshals usually sit. Still no response from Judge Crotty to Inner City Press formal opposition to AUSA Laroche's request to seal March 5 "robing room" transcript
Jury has asked about legality or illegality.
Schulte's lawyer Shroff: There's no testimony about it being legal or illegal. It's like them shooting rubber bands at each other in the CIA.
Judge Crotty: We need to review the indictment and the jury charge.

Now Juror 5 is a problem, too. There's talk of calling back the alternates. Judge Crotty doesn't want to - it would delay things until Monday. He wants to go forward with 11. All this was in the "robing room." Judge Crotty: Under Rule 23, I permit jury of 11
Judge Crotty: I'm going to call Juror 5 in and excuse her.
AUSA Laroche: I ask that the transcript of the robing room discussion be sealed until after there is a verdict.

@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @_cryptome_ @EspionageNews @CyberScoopNews @KharonData Bradley of National Archives: I know the Brennan Center publishes reports, that sometimes deal with classification. But I did not read this report.
