Just don’t do it. Don’t ever answer their questions or give them statements. Just don’t talk. Reality Winner, alleged NSA leaker, could tell you about it.
In the interview [with the FBI], Winner at first denied several times that she leaked any secret documents. She said she had been trying to get an assignment working with U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
First she acknowledged printing a report that “looked like a piece of history.” She told the agents “I thought it would be cool if I had it on my desk for a couple of days.” But she insisted she dropped the report in a bin used for papers that were to be destroyed.
“I mean, I’m trying to deploy,” Winner said. “I’m not trying to be a whistleblower. That’s crazy.”
She changed her story after an agent asked bluntly how she got the document out of the office.
“Folded in half in my pantyhose,” Winner replied.
Winner at one point asked the agents, “This sounds really bad. Am I going to jail tonight?”
One of the agents replied, “I don’t know the answer to that yet.”
An interview (i.e. talking). One story. Another story. On and on. Yes, dear, it sounds bad – because it sounds. Because you’re talking. Period. Half the time they have no evidence other that what you volunteer. Give them anything and, as they WARN YOU, it “can and WILL be used against you in court.” Yes, you’re in jail, now. Judge Epps will probably keep you there after today’s hearing.
Actually, I’m not so sure Winner could put all this together even at this time. She has a history of talking. A lot. Little of it makes sense:
“Yeah, I screwed up royally.”
Saying anything is a bad idea. That one was really bad.
“Look, I only say I hate America like 3 times a day. I’m no radical. It’s mostly just about Americans obsession with air conditioning.”
Like, OMG, radicals at least attempt a little coherency.
“I mean yeah I do [America’s] literally the worst thing to happen on the planet. We invented capitalism the downfall of the environment.”
Give an SJW a little rope… Yeah, maybe that’s not fair, here. How about SJI = Social Justice Idiot?
“I’ve filed formal complaints about [the NSA] having Fox News on, you know? Uh, just at least, for God’s sake, put Al Jazeera on, or a slideshow with people’s pets.”
She needs to be re-educated for bringing God into this. People’s pets???
I’m starting to see a mental deficiency defense if nothing else. Something lacking in the amygdala or something…
For the rest of you: just don’t talk.
In causally related news, the other day was the 230 anniversary of the U.S. Constitution. I missed it along with all the “fun”. Shame they didn’t miss it back in 1787. Proof some lies live
forever a long time.
