Is Reality Winner A Leaker, A Whistleblower Or Something Else? 9.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
What should we call Reality Winner, the 25-year-old low-level employee for a government contractor who allegedly mailed secret intelligence files to a news organization? To federal prosecutors, she’s a criminal leaker, while others, like WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange , have lionized her as a whistleblower in need of support. What’s the difference?  The answer isn’t cut and dry, yet it carries huge legal consequence. Federal laws protect whistleblowers who provide evidence of government wrongdoing. But they must share the sensitive information through specific official channels to avoid arrest or reprisals at work.  Leakers, on the other hand, can become targets for prosecution for mishandling classified information. Not all leak are crimes, however. Sharing unclassified materials — such as former FBI Director James Comey did with some of his memos about his private conversations with President Donald Trump — is not illegal, experts say.  Reality Winner is a leaker, according to the U.S. Attorney’s ...

Trump Administration Follows Obama Template In Targeting Journalists’ Sources 7.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The announcement of charges Monday against a federal contractor for allegedly leaking a top secret National Security Agency document to a news website is giving journalists flashbacks to leaker prosecutions under President Barack Obama . The charges,  tweeted  New York Times reporter Scott Shane, followed “the precedent of Obama, whose administration set the record for leak prosecutions.” Adam Goldman, a Times colleague who had his phone records secretly seized  during a 2012 leak investigation, asked whether President Donald Trump would top the number of leak prosecutions set during the previous administration. First Amendment attorney James Goodale believes so. “I suspect the Trump administration will surpass the record set by Obama for his eight years,” Goodale, who represented The New York Times against the Nixon administration in the landmark Pentagon Papers case , told HuffPost.   Ever since Trump won the Republican nomination for president, journalists have feared he would not just continue the ...
