U.S. Claim That Reality Winner Harmed National Security Doesn't Hold Up #RealityWinner 1/ theintercept.com/2018/08/23/rea…
2/ “If the GRU was already aware that the U.S. was watching its activities in 2016 — thanks to the FBI and not the media — how could the Winner document have ‘gravely harmed’ national security almost a year later?”
3/ Moreover, “There were no “sources and methods” in anything The Intercept published [from the NSA report leaked by Reality Winner].”
4/ “It is, of course, conceivable that some unknown detail in the document Winner disclosed could have caused consternation at NSA headquarters.”
5/ “But because the government will never tell the public how something ‘damaged’ national security, and uses the secrecy system to ensure that its arguments cannot be challenged, we’ll never know.”
6/ “We’ll also never know exactly how much national security damage the government caused by not releasing this information to state election officials and the public much earlier.”
