PostSubject: WikiLeaks Offers $10,000 To Get Intercept Reporter Behind NSA Story Terminated   Tue Jun 06, 2017 9:21 pm

Once upon a time Wikileaks was the go to service for any aspiring leakers. Also, once upon a time Wikileaks was on (somewhat) friendly terms with the Intercept, a website which reportedly focuses on government security in the name of protecting the public interest. All that ended overnight, when in the ongoing drama over anti-Trump NSA contractor Reality Winner, who leaked a top secret document allegedly "exposing" attempted GRU interference in the US election not to Wikileaks but to the Intercept, Julian Assange's organization offered a $10,000 reward aimed at getting the reporter behind The Intercept's story fired, after it was revealed that the source behind the story has been arrested.
As reported last night, the DOJ announced that it had arrested Reality Leigh Winner, a 25-year-old government contractor (who was very clearly not a Donald Trump fan) for leaking the classified documents to the Intercept.  Investigators were able to find Winner in part, according to a government court filings, because of clues gained when an Intercept reporter showed the leaked report to the government.
