Former National Security Agency contractor Reality Winner was released from prison on Monday into a halfway house, where she’ll serve the remaining six months of her sentence. Winner was arrested in 2017 and sentenced to five years in prison under the Espionage Act for leaking classified government information about Russian interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors say Winner received the longest sentence ever given by a federal court for unauthorized disclosure of government information to the press.
