One technique would be to generate a torrent of the encrypted data,
convince a community to seed, then distribute the magnetic link and the
decryption key over SecureDrop.

Assuming that that they leaker figured out a way to securely transfer a
hard drive, I suppose they could encrypt it with LUKS/dmcrypt, then send
a SHA-256 sum and the decryption key over SecureDrop.
