The federal contract worker who leaked highly classified NSA documents to a newspaper pleaded not guilty during a bail hearing at the Augusta, GA. Courthouse on Thursday.

Reality Winner, 25, shuffled into the courtroom wearing an orange jumpsuit and shackles on her hands and feet.

Winner was ordered held without bond after she pled not guilty. She faces federal Espionage Act charges for leaking top secret documents about Russia's alleged hacking attempts on the 2016 election.

Despite her dangerous posts on social media, the Air Force veteran was hired as a contract worker at the NSA because she speaks 5 languages.

Winner’s lawyer Titus Thomas Nichols asked the judge to release his client because she is not likely to reoffend. But the judge disagreed, citing her sometimes violent antisocial online statements that suggest she may be a possible flight risk.

Prosecutors entered into evidence a notebook found in Winner's Augusta home indicating Winner wanted to "burn the White House down," according to the Atlanta Journal.

In Twitter posts Winner called President Trump an "orange fascist" and she said white people were terrorists.

Winner's mother Billie Winner-Davis appeared in court to support her daughter. She told the NY Daily News she was "stunned" by her daughter's arrest.

She told the Daily News "they're going to try to make an example out of her because of the political climate right now."

Winner faces 10 years in prison if she is convicted on all charges.

    She's done. I wish that I can explain to everyone about what happens when you remove classified data from an classified network. She knew better and she knew that she was going to get caught as soon as she press send and print....SMH....I can't feel sorry for what she did.....

  • Torae

    She will make it harder for other contractors..they are already getting the side eye since Snowden.

  • Elevated Soul

    What an IDIOTIC SNOWFLAKE this woman is...Now she is got to do time because she allowed her partisan hatred for President Trump get to her.

    She committed treason and she threatened arson...What an IDIOT she is!

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Yet his ass faces not shit for putting the whole Russia thing in motion to start with. Last I knew that was called TREASON

  • Torae

    She's an idiot. Making all that contractor money and do something like this. While making other contractors look bad. Lord know what hoops cleared workers will have to jump through in the future because of people like her.

  • hottlanta

    There is a grammatical error in this write-up. Burn down the White House. Isn't that a "terrorist" act. Now she is white and called white people terrorist I need to know are white people offended when she said that.

  • Yoni7

    Speaking of orange jumpsuits and orange people.......OITNB is out! I will be watching on my lunch today. LOL

  • Simone

    If she was in Cuba or North Korea, she would've been put before a firing squad or hanged already. The fact that she, a traitor, is still breathing shows what a great and just nation America is. Give her the max time in prison. I don't care what your party affiliation is....The law is the law.

    You're just salty that the report confirmed that Russia attempted to hack into our voting system.

    The report would never have seen the light of day if it were up to Trump and the rest of the Republicans.

    Ha,ha,ha!!

    At 25 YO you're supposed to loving life & figuring things out...growing more and more into your adulthood. NOT getting ready to spend 10 years of your life in prison for foolishness.

    Don't let DJT, the White House or any other entity mess up your future, folks!

    This is just the beginning and your Orange Jesus is going down in flames.

  • hottlanta

    Saw mom's on television playing the I am skurred of the government card talking bout my daughter was afraid that she might come up missing. Mom's needs to explain why does her daughter have bricks laying around the house and she doesn't do construction work.

    Too bad...her passion will get her nowhere...Racists own and run this country...save your energy Becky...

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I did not realize reality was her name. I'm up here trying to figure what show was she actually on lolololololol

  • Rayne

    That's her real name tho?

  • Rayne

    You and me both

  • wiseone

    This poor woman is going to prison for doing the right thing.

  • KimJongTrill.

    This is like the only "news" outlet I see following this so closely. We don't really care

  • pure_rachet

    This is not a "news" outlet. It's a gossip blog. Lol.

  • Listen2Me

    Yes! Me too.

  • SAVERIZM

    If the law is the law then all parties involved should be locked up ,she did violate her responsibilities but she did it out of a moral obligation to us as a people. I feel like to she should have a little more support for her efforts to expose the goings on in our corrupt government structure it's easy for us to take what is said by the media on face value because it's supposed to be factual but let's not be stupid and gullible and fall in line with the bullshit the picture is bigger than we think!

  • KimJongTrill.

    Did you miss the quotes or do you not understand what a quoted word means? It's called sarcasm.

  • nick c

    Either way she doing time in the Pen its not worth it, there are a lot of closed groups you can join to let off steam twitter isnt one of them

  • nick c

    She will only have to do time until the next democrat is elected and that person will pardon her. I would extradite her to North Korea where that couldnt happen

  • pure_rachet

    Did you miss the lol at the end? And my quotes? I was clearly agreeing with you. KimjongTroll.

  • rayne215

    whats up with her name? her parents were hippies?

  • Simone

    If I was unemployed with 5 kids to feed and I robbed you and the cops lock me up. I can't say I had a "moral obligation" to feed my kids. The law is the law. If Reality Winner found evidence of Russians trying to hack into our election system, report it to your superiors, not the media. Intelligence officers or contractors sign certain documents and get security clearance & must abide by said rules & regulations or face prison.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Because you're a devout racist.

    Place your bets.

  • MzKeriBabee

    Me too!!! lol... like who seriously names their child "Reality Winner"?????????????

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    How much do you want to bet that Trump won't ever testify under oath in front of Congress like Comey did yesterday?

    How much do you want to bet that the DOJ never files perjury charges against Comey for the lies Trump claimed that Comey told yesterday?

    Go sit down somewhere.

    *dead*

  • KimJongTrill.

    Touché, my apologies

  • Wile E. Coli

    What would he have to testify for? Under which investigation? If he's asked I am sure he will. What is your point?

    Comey has put himself in jeopardy, admitting he was the leaker of that memo to the NYT. We'll see what the DOJ does.

    You're saying Trump is going down and you don't even know why? Precious! Looks like you're not willing to bet on it though. Too bad, you had your chance.

    "Reality Leigh Winner, the 25-year-old government contractor who recently
    stole classified documents from the National Security Agency, has
    revealed her strategy for avoiding jail time: play the “pretty, white
    and cute” card."

    uh-huh. some 'bro'.

    lol. Yeah da racists run everythang..

  • growingviolet

    And they stay calling black peoples' names ghetto. Reality?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It will never ever happen.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Trump said that Comey was lying and now he says that there are tapes.

    Well the House Intelligence Committee has set a June 23 deadline for Trump to submit those tapes.

    When you find out they don't exist I am sure you'll make another excuse for Trump's lies.

    The memo wasn't classified so you lose.

  • hottlanta

    We need him to read under oath first.

  • hottlanta

    Dump gonna produce the tapes the same way he was gonna produce his taxes. Hillary was right and Paul Ryan confirmed it via tape yesterday he is unfit for office and doesn't know what he is doing.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Can you believe Ryan used the old incompetence excuse?

    Digging the bottom of the barrel to defend the indefensible.

  • BloodBlood

    ????? for the white people are terrorist

  • hottlanta

    What else is there to say. They still don't wanna say that Hilary was right all along. I guess Ryan said I gotta stop looking like a fool on camera and say it for what it is. Our boy Opie Taylor, Sessions gotta come up. Flynn wanted immunity Comey didn't. He wanted the whole world to know what was up. Dump gotta realize he is out of his league. How you gonna battle with an intelligence agency and you are not intelligent. DUH!!!

  • chris

    If she was black she would have turned up missing. Country is great for white women tho point taken.

  • Dee

    They got becky shackled up like a true deadly criminal???

  • wiseone

    I'm glad she did it but sorry she has to go to prison for it.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    No worries there, you will be here making comments. Weird

  • Gotitbutsmh

    You must really be salty about all of the investigations. LOL

  • Gotitbutsmh

    She'll do time and get pardoned later. I never try to analyze the mind set of young people but it's best to stay informed but go about your daily life. By all accounts Orange Shady should have been gone but he's not. That should have been a clear signal her help is not needed or wanted.
