Chelsea Manning, a former private first class in the US Army and whistleblower who leaked 700,000 classified US State Department and military documents, just had her 35-year sentence commuted by the Obama administration on January 17th, 2017.

In August 2013, Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison. She has since been imprisoned in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. Her release is scheduled for May 17th, 2017.

  1. worrying about Trump or what he’d do in this case is not reasonable.
    He is not that type of ideologue – he doesn’t care as much about Manning as
    you might think.
    Not on his radar, at all.
    You’re expecting him to be W the village idiot. Its as far off the mark as
    possible.

    1. On his radar:
      https://www.newsmax.com/Politics/trump-manning-commutation/2017/01/18/id/769197/

      If Obama had not responded to Manning’s commutation request, then it would
      have legally fallen to Trump to respond — as that’s how pardon
      /commutation applications work. Considering Trump thinks very strongly that
      Snowden is a “traitor” (ex.
      https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/350338032790028288), it is very
      reasonable to believe he would have rejected Manning’s request. This would
      mean another 4 years in prison, at the very least. Manning has already
      attempted suicide twice, so this could have easily been a death sentence
      for her.

      Of course this does not excuse what the Obama administration has done in
      their war on whistleblowers, but considering Trump’s (and his staff’s)
      public position on whistleblowers, this war is far from over.

  2. Being pardoned means you have no crime on your record.
    As if it never even happened.
    Having your sentence commuted means you still have a crime on your record.
    BIG DIFFERENCE.

  3. Hey Julian Smith – After splitting with your co founders, raising 50 BTC
    from the community and leaving behind thousands of dollars of debt, great
    to see you’re enjoying life spending your Blockfeight ICO funds flying
    around the world going to conferences.

  4. Manning might as well move to another country(if he can legally leave)
    because I can’t see him having any kind of meaningful employment since a
    lot of people consider him a traitor.

    1. She has already been hired for over a year as an writer (while still in
      prison) and she is also likely to continue receiving financial support from
      the Courage Foundation.
