He was then tossed back in jail in December after prosecutors found evidence that he had broken those rules, and he has been held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan since then, according to the paper's report.

Recall that in 2017, the website WikiLeaks published thousands of documents, allegedly belonging to the Center kiberrazvedki Central Intelligence Agency.

Weaver added that the fact the leak could happen was more significant as it came well after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden released masses of documents about the agency's surveillance of American citizens in 2013.

On the whole, the Vault 7 disclosures are less damaging than their Shadow Brokers counterparts because the WikiLeaks dispatches haven't included potent source code that could be repurposed.

Schulte's connection to the leak investigation has not been previously reported.

Schulte's name was first reported Tuesday by The Washington Post.

He is suspected of passing classified information to the WikiLeaks website.

LeBron James Heads to Locker Room in Game 2 Against Celtics
LeBron rarely has bad games back-to-back though, particularly in the playoffs, and he will come out breathing fire in Game 2. Even if it is just for brief stretches, the Celtics know how they need to disrupt James to take control of the game.

"Those search warrants haven't yielded anything that is consistent with [Schulte's] involvement in that disclosure", Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Laroche reportedly told a court in January. Schulte is now in a Manhattan jail on charges of possessing, receiving and transporting child pornography, after prosecutors allege they found a large cache of child pornography on a server that was maintained by Schulte.

Schulte's father, Roger, said he was scared to death.

Schulte is now detained in a Manhattan jail on child pornography charges. He has pleaded not guilty. During his time at CIA, Schulte was employed at National Clandestine Service (NCS) as a Directorate of Science and Technology (DS&T) Intelligence Officer.

Why federal investigators haven't formally charged Schulte for the leaking isn't clear. 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. This, he alleges, made him appear as a disgruntled employee when he left the spy agency in 2016.

Schulte said he had also been planning a vacation with his brother to Cancun, Mexico, which may have given the appearance that he was trying to flee the country.

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)'. Following the search of his apartment in March 2017, prosecutors waited six months to bring the child pornography charges. His defense lawyers earlier insisted he was not involved in the theft. Laroche was actually describing a "characterization" by Schulte's attorneys and expressing disagreement.
