Former CIA employee suspected in Vault 7 leak to Wikileaks

Man suspected in massive CIA leak jailed, but not charged

Former CIA engineer, 29, facing a child pornography charge is also suspected of leaking devastating secret agency documents to Wikileaks

After quitting the CIA in November 2016 - according to Roger he had complained about security vulnerabilities at the agency - he joined Bloomberg as a software engineer. He revealed extraordinary details about the capabilities of the United States to spy on computers and phones around the world, but the Vault 7 leaks showed how such spying is actually done, the current and former officials argued.

A NY prosecutor is expecting a grand jury to act within weeks against a former Central Intelligence Agency employee who is jailed on child pornography charges but may face further charges in a massive leak of cyber hacking tools.

However, Laroche says the investigation "is ongoing" with Schulte remaining "a target of that investigation". 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.

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

The FBI agents managed to obtain multiple computers, servers and storage devices from Schulte's home, including an "encrypted container, approximately 54 GB in size", which held the child pornography. During his time at CIA, Schulte was employed at National Clandestine Service (NCS) as a Directorate of Science and Technology (DS&T) Intelligence Officer. Still, the article said, Schulte advised one user, "Just don't put anything too illegal on there".




The CIA declined to comment.

Schulte said in the statement that he joined the intelligence community to fulfill what he saw as a patriotic duty to respond to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

It is noted that despite the long months of investigation, prosecutors have been unable to charge him. He maintained the agency targeted him because he was the only member of his team to leave the agency after reporting "incompetent management" to the CIA's inspector general. The documents themselves covered a period from 2013 to 2016, when Schulte had been employed at the agency.

He also said that because of 'unfortunate circumstances the Federal Bureau of Investigation ultimately made the snap judgement that (he) was guilty of the leaks and targeted (him)'.

He said the complaints made him appear to be a disgruntled employee and a planned vacation to Mexico with his brother gave the impression he was trying to flee the country. And I would disagree with the defense counsel's characterization that those search warrants haven't yielded anything that is consistent with his involvement in that disclosure. Laroche was actually describing a "characterization" by Schulte's attorneys and expressing disagreement.
