A federal judge has ruled that Winner, charged with leaking U.S. secrets will remain jailed until her trial. U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian K. Epps ruled Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, that releasing the 25-year-old Winner on bond would pose an “ongoing risk to national security.” Winner is a former Air Force linguist who worked as a contractor for the National Security Agency in Augusta, Georgia, when she was charged in June with leaking a classified U.S. report to a news organization.(Lincoln County (Ga.)
