Accused Pentagon Leaker Jack Teixeira Indicted on Same Espionage Charges Faced by Donald Trump

HeadlineJun 16, 2023

A federal grand jury has indicted 21-year-old Air National Guard member Jack Teixeira on six counts of willful retention and transmission of classified information over the recent leak of highly classified Pentagon intelligence documents. Teixeira has been jailed since April. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison for each charge. Teixeira is accused of violating the same part of the Espionage Act used by federal prosecutors to charge Donald Trump over his mishandling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. Trump was released without having to pay bond after pleading “not guilty” at his arraignment in a Miami federal court on Tuesday.
