Massachusetts Airman to Plead Guilty in Document Leak Case

Jack Teixeira, a Massachusetts air national guardsman accused of taking and sharing highly classified information, will plead guilty to federal charges, reports the Wall Street Journal. The government has accused Teixeira, 22, of being responsible for the leak that exposed details of U.S. surveillance of adversaries and allies, causing diplomatic tensions. Federal prosecutors requested, and a judge agreed, to hold a change-of-plea hearing Monday.

The government charged Teixeira with unauthorized retention and transmission of national defense information and unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material. Teixeira tried to hide the scope of material he obtained and the people he shared it with, according to prosecutors. They said that Teixeira began posting material online as early as December 2022.
