mistrial of Joshua Schulte

In 2017 Wikileaks published the so-called “Vault 7” leaks, confidential CIA documents that demonstrated the agency’s ability to hack into networked cars, smart TVs, web browsers, and popular operating systems, and even hide their activities and make it look like the devices were not hacked. In 2018 former CIA contractor Joshua Schulte was arrested and put on trial for what federal prosecutors described as “the single biggest leak of classified national defence information in the history of the CIA” [1]. However, Schulte pleaded not guilty to 15 charges mostly related to the Espionage Act, and was only convicted of the most minor charges of contempt of court and making false statements to the FBI; the judge ultimately declared a mistrial.what really happened in the mistrial of Joshua Schulte for the Vault 7 leaks?
