US identifies suspect in major CIA leak

Man suspected in massive CIA leak jailed, but not charged
In August past year, authorities filed child pornography charges against Schulte, who is in a jail in Manhattan, after claiming to have found 10,000 illicit images on a server that he had set up in 2009 while studying at the University of Texas in Austin.
Transcripts [PDF] from the case contains multiple references to searches related to the Vault 7 case.
At a January hearing on child pornography charges filed against Schulte, an assistant US attorney in the Southern District of NY said the government conducted several search warrants on Schulte's home.
The breach, known as Vault 7, was the largest loss of classified documents in the agency's history.
Jacob Kaplan, Schulte's attorney at the January hearing, told the court that "the government had full access to his computers and his phone, and they found the child pornography in this case, but what they didn't find was any connection to the WikiLeaks investigation". They conducted a number of search warrants on the defendant's residence.
Despite searching the suspect's NY apartment, prosecutors say they now lack the evidence to charge Schulte. He has pleaded not guilty.
That cache would eventually be disclosed as the "Vault 7" data dump.
The FBI said they removed NSA and Central Intelligence Agency paperwork from Schulte's home, as well as a personal computer, tablet, phone and other electronics.
A former federal prosecutor who is not connected to the case said that it is not unusual to hold a suspect in one crime on unrelated charges and that the months Schulte has spent in jail do not necessarily mean the government's case has hit a wall.
"The government immediately had enough evidence to establish that he was a target of that investigation", Laroche said.
Schulte was arrested in August, but prosecutors have been unable to bring charges against him.
He also said that because of 'unfortunate circumstances the Federal Bureau of Investigation ultimately made the snap judgement that (he) was guilty of the leaks and targeted (him)'.
Government prosecutors say the man is a target of the ongoing leak investigation.
Since he's been jailed, Schulte has created a Facebook page where he posts articles criticizing the criminal justice system.
Clarification: An earlier version of this report quoted Laroche as saying that "those search warrants haven't yielded anything that is consistent with [Schulte's] involvement in that disclosure".
