Jack Teixeira, alleged classified documents leaker, indicted by federal grand jury


Jack Teixeira, the member of the Massachusetts Air National Guard accused of leaking classified documents online, has been indicted by a federal grand jury.


He is facing six counts of willful retention and transmission of classified information relation to the national defense, according to the Justice Department.


Teixeira, 21, is accused of abusing his security clearance to take classified documents and post them on social media sites, according to the Department of Justice. Teixeira revealed the kinds of military hardware the U.S. was prepared to deliver to Ukraine to assist in its defense of Russia’s invasion and put the supply line in potential jeopardy, the indictment said.


"The unauthorized removal, retention and transmission of classified information jeopardizes our nation's security. Individuals granted access to classified materials have a fundamental duty to safeguard the information for the safety of the United States, our active service members, its citizens and its allies," acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy said in a statement. "We are committed to ensuring that those entrusted with sensitive national security information adhere to the law."


Each of the charges calls for up to 10 years in prison, if convicted. An arraignment date was not immediately set.

Oh, BTW, I posted this earlier this week in another thread a month ago:

Alleged leaker fixated on guns and envisioned ‘race war’


Jack Teixeira, dressed in camouflage fatigues, his finger wrapped around the trigger of a semiautomatic rifle, faced the camera and spoke as though reciting an oath.

“Jews scam, n----rs rape, and I mag dump.”


Teixeira raised his weapon, aimed at an unseen target and fired 10 times in rapid succession, emptying the magazine of bullets.


The six-second video, taken at a gun range near Teixeira’s home in Massachusetts, affords a brief but illuminating glimpse into the offline world of the 21-year-old National Guard member, who stands accused of leaking a trove of classified military intelligence on the group-chat platform Discord.


Previously unpublished videos and chat logs reviewed by The Washington Post, as well as interviews with several of Teixeira’s close friends, suggest that he was readying for what he imagined would be a violent struggle against a legion of perceived adversaries — including Blacks, political liberals, Jews, gay and transgender people — who would make life intolerable for the kind of person Teixeira professed to be: an Orthodox Christian, politically conservative and ready to defend, if not the government of the United States, a set of ideals on which he imagined it was founded.


“He did call himself racist, multiple times,” the friend said in an interview. “I would say he was proud of it.”

Frontline did an episode on this guy that was on tonight. They covered a lot of ground in an hour.


- Flaws in the clearance process

- Lackadaisical oversight of SCIFFs

- Inability /unwillingness to police social media sites.

- Chronically online exacerbated by the Pandemic.

- Disgusting, alarming toxic, horrific racism/sexism/xenophobia/anti-semitism/violence porn shared by young people.


Admittedly, I know very little about Discord. But damn, maybe we’d be better off if we got rid of electricity.
