CIA leaker Josh Schulte to serve 40 years

The New York Post is reporting that "An ex-CIA computer whiz convicted of leaking an arsenal of government hacking tools and possessing a trove of child porn was hit with a 40-year-sentence Thursday after offending a New York judge by comparing conditions at a Brooklyn lockup to those at Nazi concentration camps." Hold the door. What did he actually leak?

"Joshua Adam Schulte is a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee who was convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks published the documents as Vault 7, which The New York Times called "the largest loss of classified documents in the agency's history." OK what were they actually about?

"On September 13, 2023, Schulte was also convicted of receiving, possessing, and transporting child sexual abuse images." Bullsh*t. What was the subject of the documents in Vault 7?

"Vault 7 is a series of documents that WikiLeaks began to publish on 7 March 2017, detailing the activities and capabilities of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to perform electronic surveillance and cyber warfare. The files, dating from 2013 to 2016, include details on the agency's software capabilities, such as the ability to compromise cars, smart TVs,[1] web browsers including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera,[2][3] the operating systems of most smartphones including Apple's iOS, and Google's Android, and computer operating systems including Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux"

This is why they arrested Meng Wanzhou. The CIA didn't have access to Huawei phones. They probably gave them access to the phones in exchange for her release.

Wikileaks reported that "Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named 'Vault 7' by WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency."

"It follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election. Year Zero introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones." All these ransomware attack companies face are from the CIA.

"Wikileaks has carefully reviewed the Year Zero disclosure and published substantive CIA documentation while avoiding the distribution of 'armed' cyberweapons until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should analyzed, disarmed and published."

"As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations" of whistleblowers?

U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt is a covert CIA hacker base

"In addition to its operations in Langley, Virginia the CIA also uses the U.S. consulate in Frankfurt as a covert base for its hackers covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa." Elections in Africa?
