Reality Winner: The 60 Minutes Interview

Reality Winner: The 60 Minutes Interview
Air Force veteran Reality Leigh Winner was charged under the Espionage Act for leaking a report documenting cyber attacks upon U.S. election infrastructure in June 2017, during the earlier days of the Trump Administration.

Upon Reality’s arrest, Courage to Resist took the initiative to form a collective response. Along side Reality’s friends and family, we built the “Stand With Reality” campaign, created online resources, and fundraised for a Courage to Resist-hosted Reality Winner Defense Fund, with significant support from CTR contributors.

In June 2018, after in-depth discussions with Reality Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, CTR agreed that the campaign should be led by Reality’s close family and friends going forward. Later, Reality pled guilty and received a four year prison sentence, vs. the ten years she would have faced otherwise.

Note that ads will play before and during the 60 Minutes episode.

Reality Winner:

“I just kept thinking, ‘My God, somebody needs to step forward and put this right. Somebody.’ … I knew it was secret. But I also knew that I had pledged service to the American people. And at that point in time, it felt like they were being led astray. … I thought this was the truth. But also, I did not betray our sources and methods. Did not cause damage. Did not put lives on the line. It only filled in a question mark that was tearing our country in half in May 2017. … I’ve had four years of just trying to say I’m not a terrorist.”
