If convicted, victor faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000, according to court documents.

The NSA document in question provided technical details on what it said were Russian attempts to hack election officials in the United States and a voting-machine firm before the USA presidential election in November, two US officials with knowledge of the case have confirmed to Reuters.

Prosecutors successfully argued Thursday that 25-year-old Reality Winner might possess more stolen government secrets and that she might be a flight risk if released on bond.

Reality Winner was denied bail Thursday after being charged with leaking top secret NSA documents.. Authorities don't know what was saved to the drive or where it is now. Before she was charged with leaking USA government secrets, Reality Leigh Winner shared sometimes scathing opinions on President Donald Trump and his policies for the whole world to see.

Neither prosecutors nor Winner's parents have identified the government agency where she worked at the time of her arrest. "But we do know she's very intelligent".

Before Winner left the Air Force, prosecutors believe she inserted a thumb drive into a computer containing classified material, the AP reported.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, is accused of passing the top secret National Security Agency report to The Intercept last month while working with Pluribus International Corp, which provides analytical services for USA defense and intelligence. The Department of Justice said she printed and improperly removed the classified information on May 9 and then mailed it a few days later.

In court, federal prosecutors said victor told a federal agent on Saturday that she purposely accessed the information, hoping that someone would have leaked it already, ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV reported. Prosecutors claim that victor wrote "I want to burn the White House down" in one of the books, and also listed the names of several Taliban and al Qaeda leaders, including Osama Bin Laden. She has been jailed in Lincoln County, Georgia.

On Twitter, Winner posted about leaks and regularly took to social media to blast President Donald Trump, though her Twitter activity dropped off significantly after she began working for Pluribus in February. Prosecutors don't think victor is a jihadist or terrorist sympathizer, they say that before she left the military, she inserted an external hard drive into a top-secret computer there. She's never ran away from anything in her life.

An FBI affidavit says victor confessed to copying and mailing the classified report when agents searched her home last Saturday.

Winner's mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told the AP that she fears "they're going to try to make an example out of her because of the political climate right now". They seized items including cellphones, computers and Winner's passport.

They also said that she wanted to travel to Afghanistan and wrote jokingly about finding somewhere in Kurdistan, though there was no contention that she had sympathy for any extremist groups.

Solari said victor also confessed to her mother during a recorded jailhouse phone call, saying: "Mom, those documents".
