Disgraced Former Army Intelligence Analyst Chelsea Manning Attempts Suicide While In Custody

(RightWingAmericans.com) – Chelsea Manning is undergoing recover after she attempted suicide on Wednesday, according to her legal team.

Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, has been under lock and key in detainment since last May because she has continually refused to testify in front of a grand jury about her disclosing diplomatic and military secrets to WikiLeaks back in 2010.

Manning was scheduled to appear in court regarding a motion to terminate the contempt sanctions she has had on her because of the refusal to testify.

According to a statement released by her legal team:

“Chelsea Manning attempted to take her own life. She was taken to a hospital and is currently recovering. Manning has previously indicated that she will not betray her principles, even at risk of grave harm to herself. Her actions today evidence the strength of her convictions, as well as the profound harm she continues to suffer as a result of her ‘civil’ confinement.”

In March of last year, Manning was thrown in jail for a similar refusal to testify before a separate grand jury. While she was detained, she received another subpoena to appear before another grand jury. During that time, she was released from custody for approximately a week, but then thrown back in jail bya federal judge when she refused to testify again.

In addition to spending this long in confinement, Manning faces a fine of $1,000 per day that she refuses to testify. Her lawyers said the total has already reached close to $500,000. Despite this, Manning’s lawyers says she “remains unwavering in her refusal to participate in a secret grand jury process that she sees as highly susceptible to abuse.”

Back in 2013, Manning was convicted on 20 of 22 counts that she faced as a result of her stealing and then giving out more than 750,000 pages of classified documents and videos to WikiLeaks. The material included a video titled “Collateral Murder” and showed a U.S. helicopter that attacked both journalists and civilians in Iraq in 2007.

Manning wasn’t convicted of the most serious charge she faced — aiding the enemy — which could have seen her get a life sentence in prison. Still, Manning — who is a transgender woman — was given a 35-year prison sentence at an all-male Army prison in Kansas. Manning was also demoted from private first class down to private and dishonorably discharged.

After she served roughly seven years in that military prison, Manning was released in May 2017 following a surprising move by then-President Barack Obama, who commuted her sentence in the final days of his last term in office. That decision shocked and angered a lot of people in the intelligence community, including Ash Carter, then Secretary of Defense, who argued that Obama should not bail out Manning.

One source, according to CNN, called Obama’s move “deeply hypocritical given Obama’s denunciation of WikiLeaks’ role in the hacking of the (Democratic National Committee),” and that the “entire intelligence community is deflated by this inexplicable use of executive power.”

    1. Attempted suicide proves what a sicko she has been all along. Perversion is this country’s sickness; not the coronavirus.

  1. She has deep dark issues, whether in a man’s body or a woman’s… which begs the question of whether sex change operations are truly the route to go for anyone, & whether a Gov’t should be paying for this surgery anyway!

      1. Bill you may have balls. But, Ball-less he is still a he All of his chromosomes have a XY in them. Therefore this person has to be a male. A female has XX chromosomes. Removing balls don’t change the sex of a human. The Y chromosome will always be there. This person has mental problems. You are just uninformed or ignorant. Take your pick.

    1. GOV should NOT be paying for Elective mutilation surgery PERIOD IT is MALPRACTICE to perform it on mentally ill people.

  2. obama involved in a scandal, I thought that there was no scandals in his very transparent administration. It must have been bush’s fault and he must have been talking about his transgender husband michael.

    1. Has anyone questioned Obama why he is more concerned about transgender people so much . Is because he has one in his household!!! He dislikes the military but sent 3000 to Kenya his home land to protect his property. Is Michelle really a woman ? What does she have on Obama that makes him follow her lead and does what she says?? Tell me folks.

      1. James have you questioned why Trumpzilla has sex with Ivanka? James have you ever questioned what Putin has over Trumpzilla, maybe it’s that video of his golden shower while in Russia? James why do you have a fascination with gay people, does that lifestyle appeal to you? James why do you love Trumpzilla is it because he’s a prevented pedophile like you? James how many little girls have you asulted over the years? James while your unemployed go seek mental help, maybe a good shrink can get to the bottom of your sick mind, you’re a prime candidate for electric shock therapy.

        1. Flush the turd you must have homo Obama mixed up with the best President in years. President Trump greatest President in ages.

          1. Amen! Flushtheturd needs to follow Manning’s lead, but succeed! The demonrat party is doomed because of ignorant minions like Flush.

        2. Flush … I just want to know, is it just conjecture, or do you have proof of what you say? What has caused you to hate so? James’ statement didn’t seem to indicate he is guilty of your allegations. Help me to understand, thank you. … I might add, hate is very destructive to the hater. It has no effect on the one being hated. I would suggest that you get counseling before it destroys you. …

  3. Veterans must jump through hoops to get disabilities but Obama got Manning a plumbing swap-out. Guess that proves that abnormal isn’t normal, at least for those who hadn’t figured it out already.

  4. Traitor Manning should never have been released by Traitor Obama not should we have paid for the di”k swap. Obama, Manning and Hillary should have adjoining cells in prison!

  5. Bottom line, this creep is a criminal traitor and has played the system as best it could, and evil Obozo was the worst president and a fraud one at that, this country has had, he’s also a traitor and a freak too! They should both be locked up together far away like GITMO!

  6. That is one fugly he/she/it. All of the insecurities it has will always be there even after surgery.. Disfiguring your body doesn’t make the problems go away, they only add to them. Who in their right mind would do such a thing. LOL I guess I just answered my own question.

    1. Someone that’s invited and allowed evil to rule their heart, mind and yes body too! All Satanic based, look around folks at all the heathen, pagan based cultist behaviors in society now and that is a sampling of what Satan gets willing souls to participate in and become!
