A ■■■ Report About Election Interference by ■■■ nyti.ms/2SFkxei
#RealityWinner mentioned at 22:10 of above linked conference
35:28 in above linked conference Prof. Mary-Rose Papandrea states "NSA employees essentially have no protections under the whistleblower laws, so that's very problematic"
51:50 Papandrea:
"A lot of the rhetoric is that all leakers are Traitors and criminals, one of my colleagues jokingly say why do you hate America, when I defend leakers and the press that love them...at a very minimum to whom the leak is made and what purpose *should* matter"
#RealityWinner mentioned again at 59:34 regarding the fingerprint of NSA printers.
They go on to discuss employees of NSA know this so if they leak, they must be "highly motivated"

You know what #RealityWinner's motivation was? Saving our democracy! #Grateful4Reality
The rhetoric is heated[on calling leakers Traitors and the press the enemy of the people].
It's not new to try to deflect attention from the info that is leaked.
Which reminds me of when @nicoleperlroth was called the "Enemy of the People" by Trump
1:05:30 Prof. Mary Rose Papandrea

"There are so many instances in our history where leaks have provided such essential information about what the Gov't is doing"

1:11:30 The panel talks about the overly classified system in America. And here's my bit on that related to #RealityWinner. They also talk about
J. William Leonard. For those of you who don't know, Leonard was scheduled to testify in Reality's defense.
So many reasons why #RealityWinner needs to be part of the conversations of the interference of our electoral process. People are quick to call her a Traitor without pausing for a moment to understand the importance of her leak, the Classification Process & espionage act.
