Reportedly Has Suspect In Biggest CIA Leak Ever, But No Charges

В США установили подозреваемого в утечке данных Центра киберразведки ЦРУ

In a statement to the Post, Schulte proclaimed his innocence.

At the time of the leaks past year, the CIA released a sombre statement: "The American public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure created to damage the Intelligence Community's ability to protect America against terrorists and other adversaries".

However after searching his home, prosecutors charged Joshua Schulte, 29, with having 10,000 child abuse images. The documents allegedly revealed details about the Toolkit of American cyber espionage.

Instead, Schulte was charged last August with three counts of receipt, possession and transportation of child pornography.

"Those search warrants haven't yielded anything that is consistent with [Schulte's] involvement in that disclosure", said assistant US attorney in the Southern District of New York Matthew Laroche.

At a January 8 hearing, Schulte's attorneys argued that they did not contest his detention, based on their understanding that Schulte would be sent to Virginia, pursuant to a warrant. That includes the fact they he is believed to have used software called Tor, which allows users to communicate and transmit information over the Internet anonymously, and the fact he was planning a vacation to Cancun, Mexico.

In documents, prosecutors allege that they found a large cache of child pornography on a server that was maintained by Schulte. However, the search failed to turn up evidence prosecutors need to indict Schulte on the leaking charges, according to The Washington Post, which was first to report the news. Schulte has pleaded not guilty, and argued that anywhere from 50 to 100 people had access to the server that he designed several years ago for sharing movies and other digital files.

According to the former Central Intelligence Agency engineer he had been planning a trip to Mexico with his brother around the time his apartment was searched, which may have given the appearance that he was trying to flee the country. Since then, he has posted a series of essays under a pseudonym on Facebook criticising the U.S. justice system.

Clarification: An earlier version of this report quoted Laroche as saying that "those search warrants haven't yielded anything that is consistent with [Schulte's] involvement in that disclosure". According to an FBI affidavit, investigators obtained passwords from Schulte's phone and decrypted a 54 GB file stored on a virtual machine that allegedly contained 10,000 offensive images and videos. Laroche was actually describing a "characterization" by Schulte's attorneys and expressing disagreement.
