Feds Raid Apartment of Suspected CIA Leaker, Find 10,000 Images of Child Porn
#1
In March 2017, the FBI agents raided the Manhattan apartment of former NSA and CIA operative Joshua Schulte looking for top secret documents and hacking tools that the defendant allegedly leaked to WikiLeaks. We don’t know if they found what they were looking for, but according to court transcripts and documents reviewed by Motherboard, the feds did find at least 10,000 images of child porn on his personal computer, and an IRC-focused file-sharing server that had at least 5 terabytes of data on it.

Roughly two weeks before the raid, on March 7, 2017, WikiLeaks started releasing top secret documents allegedly stolen from a CIA hacking group. Julian Assange’s organization called the leaks ‘Vault 7” and said it’d be an ongoing series. Its most recent release, in November of 2017, was source code of alleged CIA hacking operations, which it dubbed “Vault 8.” Until today, when The Washington Post revealed that the government had identified Schulte as the potential source of the leak, there was no suspect.

Court transcripts reviewed by Motherboard confirm that Schulte, who is 29 years old, is a suspect in the case, but thus far he has been hit with child porn charges, and there’s no specific public evidence tying Schulte to Vault 7 beyond the government saying he is a suspect in court proceedings. Schulte does not appear to have been charged with crimes stemming from leaking classified information.

Transcripts from Schulte’s bail hearings show that the case is quite complex. Publicly available transcripts from late 2017 and early 2018 show that the US government originally got a search warrant to raid his apartment in connection with a national security case, but the vast majority of incriminating material discovered by federal agents was child porn.

I would not trust anything the FBI did in 2017.

Hmm, I don't know. Sounds exactly like what they would do to someone leaking info exposing the deep state.

I was going to say how disgusting it was, never thought about that angle! I'm pretty gullible. Take things at face value.

I mean it could be true, and if so, I hope the guy burns. I guess I'm just too reluctant to believe anything they say anymore.

Found this ...

SNIP:

"... On Twitter, WikiLeaks shared The Post’s story and wrote, “US gov says that it suspects a former a young New York CIA officer is WikiLeaks’ #Vault7 source–because he complained to Congress of abuse in the CIA–but have no evidence to indict. So they put him in jail on improbable child porn accusations instead.” ..."

AND ANOTHER SNIP:
" ... Schulte’s family told The Times they believe Schulte is being made to be a “scapegoat” for the CIA’s inability to keep its sensitive files secure. His father told the newspaper Schulte complained about security vulnerabilities at the CIA, first to his bosses and then to the agency’s inspector general and a House intelligence committee member. The Times was given evidence of those communications by Schulte’s family. ..."

Wouldn't be the first time an IRC Server passed Kiddie Porn . Or the first time Intel Agencies have injected same into Target Systems .

" * * * at least 5 terabytes * * * " 5,000 Gig . . . . . wonder how They knew where to look ? Since this was an " OH GOSH LOOKIE HERE " kind of " Discovery " . 10,000 " Images " wouldn't be much in a pile like that .

A security conscious IT , running a Kiddie Porn dump , with open Servers . . . . Yeah . . . ssurrreeee , , , uhh Huhhh . . .

Good info. They need a new bag of tricks. The old ones are getting too obvious.
