Subject: [Newsletter/Marketing] [ISN] Man who allegedly leaked CIA
 hacking tools says he's been tortured and is owed $50 billion

By Jeff Stone
April 29, 2019

A former CIA computer engineer compared himself to a victim of the Nazis and 
said the government has caused him to lose more than $50 billion in income in a 
new court filing that accuses the U.S. Department of Justice of violating his 
civil rights.

Joshua Schulte has filed a preliminary complaint seeking immediate release from 
federal detention, according to court documents filed earlier this month. 
Schulte was arrested in 2017, accused of crimes including sexual assault, 
possessing child pornography and, later, providing documents detailing CIA 
hacking capabilities to WikiLeaks.

Schulte now argues that he has suffered "irreparable harm from torture imposed 
by the Federal Terrorists" and that he needs to be released in order to prepare 
a legal defense.

The complaint was first noticed by independent journalist Marcy Wheeler.
