The CIA Thinks They Have Him!

The CIA believes they know the person responsible for the largest leak in history.

According to a report, the CIA believes a former employee of the CIA's Engineering Development Group is responsible for the leak.

As reported by

The Trump administration believes it has identified the person who leaked the CIA's cybertools for foreign espionage operations last year, according to a report published Tuesday afternoon.

Joshua Adam Schulte, who worked for the CIA's Engineering Development Group, was named in a Washington Post report as the government's primary suspect.

But the Justice Department so far has been unable to prosecute Schulte, who is being held in a New York City jail on charges of possessing, receiving, and transporting child pornography. The Post report did not explain why charges have yet to be brought.

The suspect is believed to have leaked the information to WikiLeaks, federal prosecutors said during a January hearing. WikiLeaks then published the documents as "Vault 7" in March 2017.

Schulte blames a series of coincidences as the reason for the suspicion of guilt by the CIA. In a statement Schulte said he was the only employee to have recently left the CIA under bad terms, and happened to be planning a vacation to Cancun, Mexico. I can't imagine why they would think he was guilty.

Schulte had previously worked National Security Agency as well.

Let us know what you think. Is Schulte guilty? Let us know in the comments.
