Feds Say Suspected CIA WikiLeaker Spilled New Files From Prison
Marcy Wheeler, an investigative journalist who is a witness to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe, has argued that [Joshua Adam] Schulte's case could provide prosecutors with an opening to charge Assange with conduct unrelated to acts of publishing.
Wheeler detected an implicit threat to release more CIA hacking tools in the message.

"I think it possible and journalistically safe to go after Assange for releasing stolen weapons to extort a criminal pardon," she wrote at the time. "But most of the other theories of prosecuting Assange would also pose real risks for other journalists that those rooting for an Assange prosecution appreciate and rely on."

I guess, she's definitely not working for The Intercept anymore.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
