"I don't think she's seeing a light at the end of the tunnel", Billie Winner said.
The 25-year-old Air Force veteran worked on a military base in Georgia, but online she had a long history of being heavily anti-Trump, an apparent social justice warrior, and a supporter of Iran over the U.S. During their evening broadcasts, the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) either played down her political attitudes, or outright ignored them as they reported on what she did.
Prosecutors on Monday announced that they had charged victor with sharing top-secret material with a media outlet. FILE - In this June 6, 2013 file photo, the National Security Agency (NSA) campus in Fort Meade, Md. "She always does what's right", said Billie Winner-Davis, Reality's mother.
"There's not much to comment on right now as far as whether there is a connection between my client and Intercept", Nichols told NPR. Even she also admitted that she printed the classified documents and mailed it to the news outlet and other news sources.
A judge has scheduled a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court to determine whether to allow victor to be released on bond pending trial. She has been jailed in neighboring Lincoln County since her arrest, according to a booking report released by the sheriff. "Everybody in America knows what she looks like at this point". He says she has never run away from anything and there's no reason to hold her. Davis called victor "a good kid" with "a great big heart" who followed her older sibling into the Air Force. She has no record.
Nichols has described his client as a veteran, not a traitor, and - citing a statement from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein saying leakers of classified information must be held accountable - accused the government of pursuing victor for political reasons. The New York Times reports that victor became a contractor with the National Security Agency earlier this year after leaving the Air Force, moving to Georgia to work out of a government eavesdropping center there.
Victor described the trip as "such a spiritual journey for me", part of a young life that already had included serving as language analyst in an Air Force intelligence squadron and a post-military private-sector job in the field.
Reality Winner, the 25-year-old alleged NSA leaker, was arrested on Saturday for reportedly sharing highly confidential data with the press.

Researchers didn't see a difference between coconut oil and other oils high in saturated fat, like butter, beef fat and palm oil. Sacks seems to agree with Katz, suggesting Americans limit but not eliminate saturated fats from their diets.
Winner-Davis also denied she had any knowledge of her daughter's purported ties to alt-left groups.
Davis said she received a commendation for aiding in the deaths of more than 100 enemy combatants and more than 250 enemy captures.
The news outlet provided the United States government agency with a copy of the document, according to the complaint. The postmark is believed to have been from Augusta, Georgia - where victor lives. But the NSA has operated a $286 million complex in Augusta since 2012.
"These funds will be able to assist with loss of wages, counseling from this traumatic experience and to be able to recover from this as Reality & her family rebuilds their lives", the account page, originated by Shirley Fink of Fairfax, Va., states.
On Twitter, she followed Edward Snowden, WikiLeaks, several accounts with links to the hacking collective, Anonymous, and several "alt" government agency accounts that became popular after Trump's inauguration.
On Facebook, Winner posted concerns about climate change and lamented that "people voted for a soulless ginger orangutan".
Reality Winner was taken into custody in Augusta last weekend by federal marshals and charged with mailing classified information to a news organization - the online news organization, The Intercept.
The obvious question becomes: What was victor, a U.S. Air Force veteran with no criminal convictions, thinking? "She volunteers, she does whatever she can to make the community and the world better", she told the press.
