WikiLeaks offered a $10,000 reward to get a reporter for The Intercept fired after a government contractor was arrested in an alleged leak of a National Security Agency report.

The bounty is in reference to the Justice Department announcing Monday that it arrested Reality Leigh Winner after reports that Winner leaked NSA documents to the Intercept about Russian attempts to hack local election officials in the 2016 U.S. election, according to The Hill.

WikiLeaks tweeted Monday night:

The Hill's report said that authorities found Winner partly because of clues from the reporter, who showed the leaked report to the government. Four reporters are credited in the Intercept's report and which reporter showed the document to the government is not clear, according to the Hill.

WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange also weighed in, urging support for Winner in a tweet.
