WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Pfc. Bradley Manning allegedly suggested to someone at the Kansas military prison where he is being held that WikiLeaks paid for the hundreds of thousands of leaked documents, according to a legal document filed in the Article 32 proceedings for Manning.
"PFC Manning allegedly responded with, 'I sold information to WikiLeaks,' " according to the defense document.
"Shortly after this alleged statement, the guards realized that (name blacked out) should not have been in the pre-trial area," the statement continues.
But the claim seems to contradict a claim made by Manning to a hacker named Adrian Lamo. Manning confided in Lamo about his access to the classified documents. In an instant message exchange obtained by Wired Magazine, Manning wrote he could have made a lot of money selling the documents to Russia or China but rejected the idea because "it belongs in the public domain," and "information should be free."
