A woman has been accused of leaking U.S. secrets to the news media by sneaking a classified document out of the National Security Agency office in her pantyhose. Reality Winner, 25, said she leaked the document because she hates America "like three times a day." In an interview with the FBI where she confessed to the crime, Winner said: "Yeah, I screwed up royally."

Prosecutors are asking a federal judge to remand Winner to jail until her trail. Winner previously worked as an Air Force translator. The 77-page transcript of Winner's confession was made public along with a conversation between her and her sister through Facebook messenger. In the exchange between Winner and her sister on Facebook, she said, "Look, I only say I hate America like 3 times a day. I’m no radical. It’s mostly just about Americans obsession with air conditioning." Winner's sister replied, "But you don’t actually hate America, right?" Winner answered her sister saying, "I mean yeah I do it’s literally the worst thing to happen on the planet. We invented capitalism the downfall of the environment." Winner also told FBI agents she was frustrated with her civilian contractor job where she translated documents from Farsi to English for the NSA in Augusta, Georgia. "I’ve filed formal complaints about them having Fox News on, you know?" she said. "Uh, just at least, for God’s sake, put Al Jazeera on, or a slideshow with people’s pets."
She initially admitted to FBI agents she had printed the report but claimed she left it on her desk for a few days before throwing it in a recycle bin but when pressed further she admitted to sneaking the document out of the facility, "Folded in half in my pantyhose." The accused leaker is facing up to 10 years in federal prison if convicted of the charges.
