A lawyer for Schulte declined comment.

Schulte has told a Manhattan federal judge that evidence against him is “nearly non-existent.”

He was charged in June with the theft of classified materials that were released by WikiLeaks in March 2017.

Authorities say Schulte stole the information in 2016 in the Eastern District of Virginia.

Schulte has pleaded not guilty to the charges, along with child pornography charges.
