NSA Leaker Indicted. Story Is Odd

There's something odd about this story.

...The highly classified intelligence document, published Monday by The Intercept, describes how Russia managed to infiltrate America’s voting infrastructure using a spear-phishing email scheme that targeted local government officials and employees....

Etc., etc., etc.   You can make up your own mind about the threat-level exposed in that story (and the credibility thereof, too.)

So then you get the next story, all about The Leaker:

The 25-year-old woman who stole “Top Secret” documents from the National Security Agency and leaked them to The Intercept appears to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders and other progressive icons, such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore....

Now here's a really, really, strange excerpt:

...On Feb. 14, a day after Winner took her Top Secret job at Pluribus, Winner posted a photo outside of the Atlanta offices of Georgia Sen. David Perdue.

Winner wrote that she had a 30-minute private meeting with the Republican lawmaker.

She said they discussed “my concerns regarding climate change and what the state of Georgia is doing to reduce dependency on fossil fuels.”...

THIRTY MINUTES with a sitting U S Senator?  On Georgia's fossil fuel situation?
