Accused National Security Administration leaker Reality Winner revealed she “screwed up royally” when she smuggled classified information — hidden in her pantyhose — out of an NSA facility in Georgia and sent material to the media, according to documents of her FBI interview, ABC News reports.

A transcript of Winner’s FBI interview was made public in a court filing on Wednesday night.

Winner, 25, faces charges of leaking government information to the media outlet The Intercept about Russian interference in the 2016 election, including information on hacking into a voting machine software supplier, ABC News reports.

She admitted in the FBI interview she had read reports of Russian efforts to compromise voter data and wondered why the information she possessed wasn’t public.

“I saw the article and was like, ‘I don’t understand why this isn’t a thing,'” she said. “It made me very mad. I guess I just didn’t care about myself at that point. Yeah, I screwed up royally.”

She faces up to at least 9 years in prison if convicted at trial.
