Reality Winner, the suspect in the National Security Agency leak investigation, is asking a judge to throw out the initial statements she made to FBI agents when she was arrested her at her Augusta home, arguing they didn’t advise her of her Miranda rights.  

In a court documents filed this week, Winner said 10 armed FBI agents showed up at her home on June 3. Citing a search warrant, eight of them rummaged through her house, while two agents directed her to a back room in the house where they interrogated her.
