The data dump, which WikiLeaks referred to as "Vault 7", contained 7,818 Web pages and 943 attachments and included more than several hundred million lines of code, providing "the entire hacking capacity of the Central Intelligence Agency". He denies those charges, saying the server the material was discovered on was available for use by as many as 100 other people.
On the whole, the Vault 7 disclosures are less damaging than their Shadow Brokers counterparts because the WikiLeaks dispatches haven't included potent source code that could be repurposed.
Schulte's connection to the leak investigation has not been previously reported.
A report from The Washington Post cites court documents that name Joshua Adam Schulte as the person authorities think to be behind the massive Vault7 data dump. But that failed to provide the evidence that prosecutors needed to indict Schulte with illegally giving the information to WikiLeaks. That includes the fact they he is believed to have used software called Tor, which allows users to communicate and transmit information over the Internet anonymously, and the fact he was planning a vacation to Cancun, Mexico.
Despite searching the suspect's NY apartment, prosecutors say they now lack the evidence to charge Schulte. The NYT said that court papers quote messages that suggest Schulte knew of encrypted images on his computer showing children being molested by adults. He has pleaded not guilty. It was then a series of unlucky coincidences, he said, that led the government to focus in on him as a suspect in the leak investigation.

Prosecutors said in court last week that they plan to file a new indictment in the next 45 days. Schulte said 50 to 100 people had access to the server, created to share movies and other files.
Government prosecutors say the man is a target of the ongoing leak investigation.
It's unclear why Schulte has not been charged or cleared in the breach. According to Schulte's LinkedIn page, he also worked for the US National Security Agency as a system engineer, prior to his time at the CIA.
The CIA is not commenting on the latest developments.
Schulte said in the statement that he joined the intelligence community to fulfill what he saw as a patriotic duty to respond to the attacks of September 11, 2001. He maintained the agency targeted him because he was the only member of his team to leave the agency after reporting "incompetent management" to the CIA's inspector general.
