Alleged Pentagon leaker will remain in prison until trial, judge rules
Earlier this week, the Department of Justice disclosed three memos revealing that the Massachusetts Air National Guardsman had been repeatedly warned about his handling of sensitive materials.
Accused Pentagon leaker Jack Teixeira will remain in prison until his trial on charges under the Espionage Act.
Teixeira is allegedly responsible for one of the most significant intelligence leaks in recent American history, with prosecutors saying he posted hundreds of pages of sensitive documents to a Discord server over the course of several months. Much of the materials included intelligence related to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Judge David Hennessy on Friday excoriated Teixeira, whom he said committed "a profound breach" of his "word that he would protect information related to the security of the United States," according to The Hill. "Who did he put at risk? I mean, you could make a list as long as a phone book"
