In CIA Leaks Trial Courtroom Goes Sealed For CIA Leonis With Blogger in the Front

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
Books - Guardian - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

LITERARY SDNY, June 16 – Kurt Wheelock had fought against the sealed courtroom protocols but now they had arrived.

Thursday morning before the jury came in, Judge Furman said that for the coming witness, most people would have to leave the courtroom. Along with Schulte's mother and father, there in the second row, there were two other exception, initially won before the first trial's judge, Paul Crotty. And Kurt would be one of them.

   Schulte said he had 45 minutes of cross examination left. But it went longer, with Schulte asking FBI agent Evanchec if his Google Searches - which he pointed out include Google News alert auto notifications - might not have been tied to other Wikileaks news, from the DNC emails to Guccifer 2.0.

  Judge Furman cut in and asked Evanchec, Do you know about Guccifer 2.0?   No, Evanchec said. He also didn't know how Google News alerts worked. Schulte make the point but it was stricken from the record. 

  Finally at 12:20 pm it began. Kurt was told, Get out of the hallway (so that the CIA witness could enter unseen). But then he was allowed in.
"What paper are you with?" he was asked.   "Inner City Press," he said. "And it's not on paper."  

 The CIA witness, who it's fair to say was short, came in front the front door. Not the holding cell, nor the judges' elevator. Maybe he'd been driven in through the basement garage. Kurt couldn't be in two places at once.

   He said his name, in open court: Anthony Leonis. He had been Schulte's supervisor. And he'd quickly concluded that Schulte couldn't be trust. They moved his cubicle, then his unit, then took away his access to OSB Libraries.

   This one, Schulte had reversed through Atlassian. That sent off alarm bells, and the whole library was taken away to a third party administrator But it was announced not by the new outside administrator but rather one of Schulte's colleagues.

In the emails were Jeremy, Sean, Richard, Debra, Bonnie B. Smith, Frank Stedman, Leonard Small and Patrick Schaffer. More on Patreon here
