    I'm conflicted. Namely because Manning deserves to be locked away in a cell forever, but also because the people who are attempting to imprison her are also doing so with blatant hypocrisy.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    “personal attorney” to Individual-1, who at that point had become the President of the United States

    What about checks and balances? If Congress cannot hold executive branch employees accountable for their behavior, what is to stop the DOJ from committing any crime they choose?

    Are you of the opinion that when the USSC ruled 8-0 that Nixon had to honor a subpoena they ruled in error?

    I hope it stays in prison ... until the 35-year sentence is completed.

    Anyone else find it kind of hypocritical that Manning is sent to prison for refusing to honor a subpoena by a Justice Dept. that is run by a man who refuses to honor a subpoena?
    technically this is not true.

    @Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning@

    Chelsea was never an army intelligence analyst.

    Quite clearly the US govt isn't going to like forkers with principles.

    I find it appalling that Manning has been placed back in the crosshairs.

    The attempt to compare it to Trump's situation?

    Completely ridiculous.
    Those who demand the destruction of heroic men like Julian Assange and Antonio Moreira Antunes would perhaps be happier living in Putin's Russia, where journalists are routinely murdered for speaking truth.
