    Chelsea Manning said if given the chance to speak with former President Barack Obama, she would say thank you. In her first interview since her May 17 release from prison, Manning was in tears when asked by ABC News journalist Juju Chang what she would say to the president. “Thank you for giving the chance, that’s all I wanted,” said Manning. “That’s all I asked for was a chance. That’s it, and now this is my chance.” Manning, a transgender U.S. Army private, was arrested in 2010 for releasing over 700,000 documents to WikiLeaks. As Bradley Manning, she was sentenced...

    (ABC News) — Chelsea Manning has been called a hero by some, a traitor by others, but when asked how she sees herself, she said, “I’m just me.” “It’s as simple as that,” Manning told “Nightline” co-anchor Juju Chang in an exclusive interview that will air in an upcoming special edition of “Nightline.”

    Chelsea Manning to remain on active duty in Army and receive health care after prison release Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. soldier convicted of espionage, will remain on active duty and be eligible for health care benefits after her release from prison, the Army said. Manning, who was known as Bradley and underwent hormone treatment behind bars, will remain a private in the Army, have access to commissaries and continue to receive health care benefits, but will not be paid, an Army spokesman told USA Today. “Pvt. Manning is statutorily entitled to medical care while on excess leave in an...

    Within a fever-dream assemblage of Twitter feeds, news reports, declassified video and court testimonies, four singers expose the media hysteria surrounding Chelsea Manning, who infamously leaked hundreds of classified documents. Named one of the best classical music recordings of 2015 by The New York Times, this powerful work grapples with how we as individuals and a nation can confront the information Manning exposed.

    The last thing the United States needs right now is another celebrity personality sticking a nose into politics, another person who has never lived the struggles of average Americans developing the policies to fix average lives. So of course right now is when Peyton Manning surfaces on the political scene, set to flank President Donald Trump at a Senate-House GOP retreat in Philadelphia that began Wednesday. Manning will reportedly speak at the event, part of a lineup that includes Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

    Former US military intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning has questioned Barack Obama's legacy after the former Democratic president commuted her sentence last week, and is calling for "an unapologetic progressive leader" to fight for minorities' rights. While not mentioning US President Donald Trump by name, Manning wrote in Britain's the Guardian that "after eight years of attempted compromise and relentless disrespect in return, we are moving into darker times" and urged Democrats not to compromise. Trump responded in a tweet, calling her a traitor and criticising the decision to release her. "Ungrateful TRAITOR Chelsea Manning, who should never have been released...

    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...

    Please remind me the specifics of Bradley Manning's conviction. I seem to remember there were various charges and that it wasn't the release of the single video purporting to show Apache pilots killing unarmed people, as the press seems to make it out. Weren't there other security breeches? Didn't he release info that resulted in harm to US personnel and Iraqis aided the US? Any links to accurate sources is appreciated.

    The Army says former private Chelsea Manning will lose her military healthcare benefits despite President Obama’s commutation of her prison sentence. “If Pvt. Manning is discharged with a dishonorable discharge, she will lose her entitlement to [military] benefits, including gender-transition care at [military] medical treatment facilities,” Army spokeswoman Cynthia Smith told USA Today Wednesday. Smith said Manning’s dishonorable discharge was included in the terms of the 35-year prison sentence imposed on her in 2013. Manning was convicted of leaking classified information about U.S. national security activities that were later publicly disclosed by WikiLeaks. Smith said Manning could appeal her discharge...

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Wednesday blasted President Obama's decision to commute former U.S. Army soldier Chelsea Manning’s 35-year prison sentence. “To commute Private Manning's sentence was a mistake," Pence said in a pre-recorded interview with Fox News that will be broadcast Wednesday evening. The vice president-elect echoed the words of Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who on Tuesday said Obama treated "a traitor like a martyr.” "Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr, as Senator Cotton said. Private Manning's actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange, compromised individuals in Afghanistan...

My Russian friend, Venjamin, who has more music in his little pinky than I have in my whole body, but he doesn't really do the 'Highbrow' thing, asks me, 'Do you think there are any modern composers as good as those classical ones in the 17- and 1800s?'

    This BS about choosing what sex you want to be is getting under my skin. So the traitor Manning wants to cross dress and believe he is a woman well that is his mental condition. I suppose if he want ed believe he is a goat then we should all call him a goat. Check his DNA. It says he is a male NOT A WOMAN. These trannies are mentally ill not in the wrong body. Period.

    Chelsea Manning saw injustice and stood up for what’s right. Now, she’s serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison. She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation. The news has sparked a groundswell of support for Chelsea online. Hundreds of thousands of people have already taken action to support her, but now the message is simpler than ever. But now...

    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...

    President Obama has put Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News. A decision could come as soon as Wednesday for Manning, who has tried to commit suicide twice this year and went on a hunger strike in a bid for gender reassignment surgery. "I have more hope right now than I have the entire time since she was sentenced," Manning's aunt, Deborah Manning, told NBC News....

    Talk about bad timing. After the election, Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have stoked hysteria over Russian hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s e-mails. Obama just kicked 35 Russian diplomatic officials out of the country over the allegations, turning it into a major diplomatic rift. Just as this contretemps appears to have reached its zenith, two notorious figures who stole massive amounts of diplomatic and national-security data and exposed it to the world have asked Obama to pardon them, as Politico’s Josh Gerstein reports — one of whom now lives under Vladimir Putin’s grant of asylum: Four of...
