Busted NSA Leaker Labeled Trump An "Orange Fascist" On Twitter Prior To Accusations

As far too many people learn each and every day, the things you say on social media can and will come back to haunt you. Our latest example comes courtesy of 25-year-old Reality Winner - yes, that’s her real name - a federal contractor who was busted for printing out confidential information and forwarding it to a news organization. A quick gander at her social media footprint has done little to serve as a voucher for her character, as she seems to have taken some great joy at lashing out at President Donald Trump.

As AOL shares, one of her posts labeled Trump as an "orange fascist." While Winner is entitled to her opinions, that’s nonetheless an incredibly curious public statement from a woman whose bread is buttered by working for the federal government. This isn’t a new phenomenon either, as her angst with Trump stems back to Election Night.

"Well. People suck. #ElectionNight," she wrote.

She has also shared and liked a number of anti-Trump posts, including an article from the Wall Street Journal that was entitled “Spies Keep Intelligence From Donald Trump on Leak Concerns."

One of her biggest meltdowns occurred after Trump gave the green light to the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. That prompted Winner to write a paragraph on social media, but that post has reportedly been deleted.

"Repeat after me: In the United States of America, in the year 2017, access to clean, fresh, water is not a right, but a privilege based off one's socio-economic status. If that didn't feel good to say aloud, contact your senators today and tell them those exact words as to why the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines cannot be built on American soil,” she reportedly wrote. “Let's fix the pipes meant to bring water, sans lead or pollutants, to our citizens before we build pipes meant to benefit big oil and poison the land. #NoDAPL"

As for the information that she leaked, Winner printed out confidential information that had to do with Russia, and she forwarded that information to The Intercept. It didn’t take too long for her to be tracked down as the source of the leak, as investigators were able to trace the document to being printed from her computer. She has admitted to leaking the information, but no concrete explanation for why she did so has been released so far.

She’s a former Air Force linguist that was employed as a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation. Winner had top security clearance for her job at a government facility in Georgia, but that trust was obviously quite misplaced. A quick gander at her various social media profiles may have led to some kind of review, or at least a chat to determine if everything was ok based on all of the anger she was expressing.

That’s a moot point now, as Winner will now have to face the consequences for feeling the need to share classified information with a news organization.
