"Reality Winner is frustrated...when she hears that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, gets sent to a cushy, minimum security prison camp in upstate NY while her pleas for similar treatment are met w silence." If @Will_Bunch wrote it, you should read it #FreeRealityWinner
2/ "Powers that be would love for you to forget Reality Winner ever existed. That’s why Trump’s DOJ took the hardest-line approach every step of the way in prosecuting her for leaking a key govt doc in 2017, ensuring that she would remain in federal custody well beyond election"
3/ " Clearer & clearer that what she blew the whistle on—govt covering up evidence that Russian hacking of US election boards had been more successful & posed greater threat than officials wanted public to know—is major scandal that threatens the very underpinnings of democracy"
4/ "Her blown whistle put new pressure on Washington to investigate a problem that Team Trump and its allies on Capitol Hill wanted to disappear."
5/ "3 years of govt assurances that Russians didn’t change the vote count weren’t actually true.

For jamming her foot in almost-slammed-shut doorway of truth, you’d think Winner would be getting a ticker-tape parade. But the folks who won that election had other plans for her"
6/ "Butina was offered a deal — ... just 18 mos, or less than 1/3 of Winner’s sentence. And political pressure may cut that sentence even shorter, meaning that Butina might be sharing caviar with her millionaire backers in Moscow while Winner still sits in her orange jumpsuit"
7/ "But here’s something even more bizarre. Butina has also been allowed to speak from her lockup with journalists from National Public Radio, CNN, and other leading news outlets... the feds won’t even allow Winner to speak with reporters over the telephone."
8/ "Key allies in Congress—most notably #MoscowMitchMcTreason --have been engaged in 3-yr effort to deny, downplay, & flat-out cover-up extent to which Russia is interfering in our elections, w grand plans to do it again in 2020 when both Trump & McConnell are both on the ballot"
9/ "Billie Winner-Davis says that she and her daughter feel that she is a political prisoner. It’s hard to disagree."
10/ "Each presidential candidate — including Trump — should be asked whether they will pardon Reality Winner, and what they will then do as president to make sure that whistleblowers — and the American people’s right to know — are protected, not punished."
11/11 "Reality Winner has already served two years for what she did — much more than enough time. Every day she spends locked up, we are all a little less free."
