Yesterday it was revealed that a 25-year-old woman named Reality Leigh Winner sent a top secret NSA document to The Intercept, alleging that the Russian military had launched a 2016 cyber attack on a voting software company in the United States. The news, which could have staggering implications as to unveiling how much the election may have been tilted in the favor of President Trump, came at a severe price. The leaker, Reality Winner, was charged by the DOJ for leaking classified information to a news outlet.
The Trump administration is clearly unhappy with the dozens of leaks emanating from the intelligence community, as well as their own White House, and will likely try and make an example out of Winner’s arrest. This arrest, however, may turn out to be a nightmare for Trump as filmmaker Michael Moore has just launched his own website to encourage such leaks.
This morning, Moore announced Trumpileaks, a site which integrates encrypted messaging apps like Peerio, WhatsApp and Signal, and provides instructions to potential leakers on how to send encrypted anonymous messages through the website in order to encourage Americans to blow the whistle on the Trump administration.
“Welcome to TrumpiLeaks. This site provides the most high-powered encryption technology to enable courageous whistleblowers to privately communicate with me and my team. Patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of the crimes, lies and general misconduct committed by Donald J. Trump and his associates are encouraged to blow the whistle in the name of protecting the United States of America from tyranny,” reads the website.
Such an outlet, run by a highly respected liberal like Moore could certainly bare many fruits in the fight to bring down a President and restore confidence in the U.S. election process.
