  • Sources: US prepares charges to seek arrest of WikiLeaks' Julian Assange

    Washington (CNN)US authorities have prepared charges to seek the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, US officials familiar with the matter tell CNN. The Justice Department investigation of Assange and WikiLeaks dates to at least 2010, when the site first gained wide attention for posting thousands of files stolen by the former US Army intelligence analyst now known as Chelsea Manning. Prosecutors have struggled with whether the First Amendment precluded the prosecution of Assange, but now believe they have found a way to move forward.
  • State Pulls the Plug On SIPRNet (2010 Time article on Wikileaks)

    Late last week, after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informed the White House of the likely fall-out from the WikiLeaks cable dump, the White House came back with a question: "What's our corrective action?" Clinton's undersecretary for management, Patrick Kennedy, had a simple suggestion: pull the plug on SIPRNet, the classified DoD network that PFC Bradley Manning reportedly used to download the cables from State's inhouse classified database. "The White House said do it," says a senior administration official. The publication by WikiLeaks of more than 250,000 diplomatic cables, many of them classified, is forcing an administration-wide intelligence retrenchment as...
  • Can Donald Trump Rescind Chelsea Manning's Clemency?

    President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced his predecessor’s decision to shorten the prison sentence of WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning. But he’s almost certainly unable to rescind the act of clemency that will see Manning released in May. Pardons have been rescinded before and commutations have been modified, but experts appear to lean unanimously in Manning's favor, even though they are divided on the finer points of clemency-revocation powers. "I can think of examples of where conditions were changed, but they're always toward leniency," professor and clemency expert P.S. Ruckman says about historical commutation changes.

    Donald Trump Rightfully Calls Chelsea Manning a 'TRAITOR,' Washington Post Takes Offense [TWEET BY DONALD TRUMP] With Trump, there's this little game I like to play called "Good Trump, Bad Trump." One day he appears to be completely rational and highly principled, but the next day he behaves like a spoiled brat who can't accept the fact that fewer people attended his inauguration than Obama's. Good Trump, Bad Trump. It differs from day to day, and often even from hour to hour. Obviously, this tweet about Chelsea Manning proves that Good Trump is currently in charge of the man. Chelsea...

    Adrian Lamo, the former recreational hacker who reported Chelsea Manning to authorities, says he’s glad the WikiLeaks source will get a second chance. Lamo elicited a confession from Manning and gave it to military investigators in 2010, resulting in a 35-year prison sentence for the leaker who embarrassed the U.S. government by disclosing a massive number of military and diplomatic documents. The informant says “it was not my most honorable moment,” though he says he made peace with the effects of his decision, even before President Barack Obama on Tuesday granted clemency to Manning, who will be released in May...

    Business Insider ^ | 01/11/2017 | Paul Szoldra
    President Barack Obama is seriously considering a pardon for former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, according to a new report from NBC News. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act and other charges in July 2013 after he stole nearly a million secret documents while working as an intelligence analyst, later giving them to WikiLeaks. The files detailed operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and revealed secret diplomatic cables, some of which were highly embarrassing to the US. A Justice Department source told NBC News that Manning was on the president's "short list" for commutations. The 29-year-old is currently...

She has asked President Obama to reduce her sentence for leaking classified files from 35 years to the more than six she has already spent behind bars, reports the New York Times, which notes that Manning has already spent more time in prison than any other convicted leaker in U.S. history.

    The American soldier alleged to have leaked vast numbers of classified documents to Wikileaks was prone to tantrums and at one point struck a female superior, a court heard today. Captain Casey Fulton, an Army intelligence officer who worked in the same secure facility as 24-year-old Bradley Manning, described a violent outburst in May 2010 at their secure office or SCIF (Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility). Fulton said she ordered a derogatory report against Manning, who is charged with downloading hundreds of thousands of sensitive files from the military's classified network when he was a U.S. Army intelligence analyst in Iraq,...

    Days after Hillary Clinton finally acknowledged that using a private email server while secretary of State was “a mistake,” a super-PAC supporting her says it was actually the responsible, safe approach to data security. While the Democratic presidential nominee's notorious server doesn’t appear to have been hacked, the federal government definitely was, Correct the Record said in a report out Friday. “The U.S. government has been hacked on numerous occasions, compromising even the most sensitive of information,” Correct the Record said. “Anyone who attempts to argue that the contents of Hillary Clinton’s email would have been more secure on a...

The material was originally obtained by WikiLeaks, an organization devoted to revealing secret documents. WikiLeaks intends to make the archive public on its Web site...

    As homosexual Army soldier Bradley Manning’s treason trial continues at Fort Meade, Maryland, the support he has received from Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has been curiously ignored by the major media, now touting Paul as someone who could win the January 3 Iowa Republican Caucuses. Paul has called Manning, a crossdresser with acknowledged mental problems, a “hero” and “patriot” for stealing government secrets and providing them to WikiLeaks.
