The family of Reality Winner is urging President Biden to free the NSA whistleblower, who has been behind bars for over three-and-a-half years for leaking documents to The Intercept about Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. The ongoing campaign to free Reality Winner has gained renewed urgency as The Intercept reported this week Winner recently faced threats from a guard after she made a report of abuse against him last March. This is Reality Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis.
Billie Winner-Davis: “Mr. President, my daughter was jailed, denied bail and has been imprisoned for over three-and-a-half years. She has suffered tremendously. She has been beaten, injured, sexually assaulted by her jailer and denied compassionate release. … Please, Mr. President, bring my daughter home.”
