Harold Thomas Martin III

28 March: In our very first post, we mentioned the case of Harold Thomas Martin III, 54, a former Booz Allen Hamilton contractor for the NSA, who had stolen 50 Tb of classified data – even more than that stolen by Edward Snowden. Martin was arrested in 2016 and is due to stand trial this year.

CNN is now reporting that he will plead guilty at his arraignment today. Martin’s mitigation will be that he is simply a hoarder with mental health problems and that he has not and did not intend to pass on the intelligence to any third party.
