NEW YORK (AP) — A former CIA software engineer accused of causing the biggest theft of classified information in CIA history has told a jury there’s not enough evidence to convict him of espionage and other federal charges.

Joshua Schulte defended himself at a New York City retrial. He said in his closing arguments Thursday that the CIA and FBI made him a scapegoat for an embarrassing public release of a trove of CIA secrets by WikiLeaks in 2017.

A prosecutor said there was ample proof that he pilfered a sensitive backup computer file.
