JOSHUA SCHULTE NAMED AS SUSPECT IN 'VAULT 7' LEAK OF CIA TOOLS TO WIKILEAKS, BUT CHARGED INSTEAD OVER CHILD PORN

Federal investigators believe a man who once worked for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency is responsible for last year's massive leak of Top Secret CIA hacking tools, court documents reveal.

The suspect has been named as Joshua Adam Schulte, 29, who lived in New York, and is now in federal jail in Manhattan--not for the hack, but on child pornography charges.

Chat log found on Joshua Schulte's computer - feds say he's discussing how to keep child porn secret. I'm more interested in the CIA coder's comment about how encryption can be broken.

The government has filed no charges against Schulte in connection with the CIA leak. It's not clear why.

In court, Schulte's lawyer Jacob Kaplan said the FBI suspects his client was behind the leak of some 8,000 CIA documents to WikiLeaks in March, 2017.

"The FBI believed that Mr. Schulte was involved in that leak," said Kaplan, according to a transcript of a Jan. 8, 2018 hearing published by NBC News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answer as to why Schulte has not been charged with these leaks is simple; Wikileaks has now become considered a credible resource for average individuals to use, and is truth-centric; child porn is still considered to be ugly and horrific. By smearing him with the child porn, which he did apparently view, it is smearing Wikileaks by association, a very old trick of America's Deep State.
