In Augusta, Georgia, U.S. intelligence contractor Reality Leigh Winner pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges she leaked a top-secret document to The Intercept. Winner was charged for allegedly leaking a top-secret document claiming Russian military intelligence conducted a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software company just days before last November’s election. Prosecutors told a judge Winner had plans to reveal more classified files. A federal judge denied bail to Winner pending her trial on charges she violated the Espionage Act. Winner was led away in shackles, wearing an orange jumpsuit. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
