Chelsea Manning in Custody for Refusing to Testify on WikiLeaks

Chelsea Manning – the transgender former Army intelligence officer who is guilty of releasing classified information to Wikileaks in 2010 – has been brought into custody again, this time for refusing to testify regarding her WikiLeaks leak.

In January, Manning was subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury. After refusing to answer questions from the jury, though, the judge found Manning in contempt of court and ordered that she be held in jail until she agreed to cooperate with the jury’s questioning. If Manning continues to refuse to cooperate, she will be held in jail until the grand jury concludes its investigation, which may be up to 18 months according to Manning’s lawyer.

Chelsea Manning drew the ire of many conservatives and U.S. military supporters when she leaked information that had the potential to put US forces in danger. Manning pled guilty to 10 out of the 22 charges that were brought against her, and she was sentenced to serve 35 years in prison. However, President Obama pardoned Manning in what is now considered to be one of the most controversial Presidential pardons in history.
