"They took her by surprise". She could face up to a 10-year sentence.

Before her arrest, the Texas-raised linguist and Air Force veteran was also known as a yoga instructor and animal lover.

Winner's stepfather, Gary Davis, told The Associated Press that she is "not a flight risk". How would she know what to look for? The prosecutor said that victor had a Tor browser on a computer.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, is accused of passing the top secret National Security Agency report to The Intercept last month while working with Pluribus International Corp, which provides analytical services for United States defense and intelligence. Bernie Sanders supporter, was arrested Saturday and is being charged specifically for stealing "Top Secret" documents from the NSA and relaying it to online publication The Intercept. The Department of Justice said she printed and improperly removed the classified information on May 9 and then mailed it a few days later.

The Intercept's reporting on Monday alleged that Russian military intelligence launched a 2016 cyberattack on a voting software company.

The complaint said victor told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent she had intentionally printed classified intelligence and mailed it to a news organisation while knowing "the contents of the reporting could be used to the injury of the United States and to the advantage of a foreign nation".

And in an angry reply to a report that Trump said he wasn't hearing complaints about building the Dakota Access oil pipeline, victor wrote on Facebook: "I'm losing my mind".

Victor served in the Air Force from December 2010 to 2016. She served six years in the Air Force before she moved to Georgia early this year, according to her mother, Billie Winner-Davis.

"The important thing is don't rush into deciding what is true or not true", her court-appointed lawyer Titus Nichols said yesterday.

Victor is a former Air Force linguist who now works as a USA government contractor.

In the process, the intelligence agency noticed that the reports "appeared to be folded and/or creased, suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secured space", according to the official legal complaint.

"There's not much to comment on right now as far as whether there is a connection between my client and Intercept", Nichols said.

Victor has been in local custody since her arrest and is expected to be taken into formal federal custody on Thursday.

A federal judge denied Winner's request for bond. O'Donnell has since been praising victor via Twitter, caller her a "patriot".

"We really don't know the full extent of what she's been charged with because we don't know the content of the documents that she released".

"My biggest fear in all of this is that she's not going to get a fair trial". Before she was charged with leaking US government secrets, Reality Leigh Winner shared sometimes scathing opinions on President Donald Trump and his policies for the whole world to see.

The Intercept report carried details it said supported the conclusion of USA intelligence agencies that Russian intelligence services were seeking to infiltrate state voter registration systems.

Winner's attorney says she should be released and prosecutors are exaggerating the threat she poses.

On Instagram, where she used the name @Reezlie, same as her Twitter handle, she mostly posted selfies from the gym or photos of food. "She's a patriot", Davis said.

Prosecutors said a phone call to her sister expressed her confidence in how to play the court during her bond hearing. Numerous accounts claim to be run by agency employees unhappy with Trump. "Her words to me were that she was really scared that they would make her disappear". I didn't know anything.
