Reality Leight Winner is no Clapper or Petraeus with "elite immunity". She's a young woman against the wall for talking to the press.— Julian Assange (@JulianAssange) 6 июня 2017 г.
It doesn't matter why she did it or the quality the report. Acts of non-elite sources communicating knowledge should be strongly encouraged.— Julian Assange (@JulianAssange) 6 июня 2017 г.
