Pentagon Leak Suspect Jack Teixeira to Plead Guilty in Federal Case


According to court documents, Jack Teixeira, a member of the Massachusetts Air National Guard accused of leaking highly classified military documents on social media, is expected to plead guilty in his federal case.

Prosecutors asked the judge to set up a change of plea hearing, but no other information was immediately available. The judge scheduled the hearing for Monday at Boston’s federal courthouse. Teixeira had previously pleaded not guilty on six counts of willful retention and transmission of national defense information.
