    Hasan has remained on death row for seven years and counting. Manning said he hopes "justice gets served" but realizes Hasan may never be executed. ... When it came to Hasan, Manning said, there was a double standard. Hasan wrote emails to radical American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki seeking advice on reconciling his Muslim faith with serving in the Army. This fact was known to the FBI. “You could lose your security clearance in the Army for having bad credit and be kicked out of the Army. But you can't lose your security clearance for talking to a member of Al...

    Of all the lies that Edward Snowden has told since his massive theft of secrets from the National Security Agency and his journey to Russia via Hong Kong in 2013, none is more provocative than the claim that he never intended to engage in espionage, and was only a “whistleblower” seeking to expose the overreach of NSA’s information gathering. With the clock ticking on Mr. Snowden’s chance of a pardon, now is a good time to review what we have learned about his real mission.

    Chelsea Manning is slated to face daily fines for contempt of court due to a Saturday deadline for the jailed WikiLeaks source to start cooperating with federal investigators. Manning, a 31-year-old activist and former Army analyst, was found in civil contempt on May 16 for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury empaneled in Alexandria, Virginia, where the Department of Justice has for years helmed the government’s criminal investigation into the WikiLeaks website and its founder, Julian Assange. The second contempt ruling issued against her in nearly as many months, Manning was ordered jailed and given until this weekend...

    The Department of Justice announced 17 new charges against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange on Thursday, including a virtually unprecedented move to charge him with publishing classified material — a move that could pose challenges to First Amendment protections. In a superseding indictment, a grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia, has accused Assange of breaking the law by inducing Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning to send him classified documents — and then publishing material that included the names of confidential sources who provided information to American diplomats. The 17 counts were tacked on to a single count accusing Assange of conspiring with Manning...

Jose Suarez, also known as “Chompira,” was convicted on murder, racketeering and assault charges for the Jan. 29 killing of Esteban Alvarado-Bonilla in a Long Island deli, according to federal prosecutors.

    Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning is headed back to jail for refusing to testify before a grand jury in the WikiLeaks probe. Manning served two months at William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Va. for a contempt charge regarding the same issue, but was released on Friday after the grand jury term expired. This time, a judge ordered Manning to the Alexandria Detention Center, where she can face up to 18 months in prison, the length of the grand jury term, unless she agrees to cooperate with the investigation sooner.

    After spending more than two months in a jail cell on contempt charges, convicted traitor Chelsea Manning was released yesterday. This was not a signal that she had finally decided to cooperate and answer questions before the grand jury. Nor was it an indication that one of her attorneys’ many motions to allow her to go free had been granted. It was just the fact that the grand jury had concluded their term and been dismissed. At that point, Manning could no longer be held in jail. (Gizmodo) Chelsea Manning was released today from the Virginia jail where she spent...

    Former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who was being detained for refusing to testify before a grand jury, was released on Thursday and immediately summoned to appear before a new grand jury next week, her lawyers said. Manning was released after the term expired for the previous grand jury in Virginia that was seeking her testimony in connection with what is believed to be the government’s long-running investigation into WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange. She was simultaneously subpoenaed to appear before a different grand jury on May 16, meaning she could be found in contempt again for refusing...

    A federal appeals court has denied Chelsea Manning’s request to overturn an order finding her in contempt for refusing to testifying before a grand jury. The order, issued Monday, rejected Manning’s argument that a judge improperly denied her request to say whether she was illegally electronically surveilled after she was convicted in 2013 for leaking classified material to WikiLeaks. “Upon consideration of the memorandum briefs filed on appeal and the record of proceedings in the district court, the court finds no error in the district court’s rulings and affirms its finding of civil contempt,” the order reads. “The court also...

    Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning wants out of a Virginia jail — and is getting support from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manning, 31, who was jailed on March 8 on contempt charges by a federal judge for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks, wants to be released as the judge’s order is appealed. Manning, 31, is also asking to not be required to testify, reiterating her stance earlier this month to Virginia federal Judge Claude Hilton that she has no intention of doing so. Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday that Manning has been “trapped in solitary confinement” for refusing...

    Supporters of Chelsea Manning have demanded her release from effective solitary confinement, in which she has been held for more than two weeks since being jailed for contempt of court. “We condemn the solitary confinement that Chelsea Manning has been subjected to during her incarceration at William G Truesdale adult detention center,” a committee of supporters said in a statement on Saturday. Manning has been held in administrative segregation, or “adseg”, with up to 22 hours each day spent in isolation, for the duration of her detention.

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Cory Booker sent out a Tweet on Saturday night that transgenders who serve in the U.S. military are heroes and that President Donald Trump’s policy of banning transgenders from the military is a national security threat. Booker’s Tweet was linked to a Tweet by the Human Rights Campaign that featured a video of transgender former service members speaking about their experiences in the military. “Transgender servicemembers are heroes, just like all other servicemembers risking their lives for their country,” Booker said in his Tweet. “President Trump’s effort to ban them doesn’t just fly in the face of...

    It now appears all but certain that Chelsea Manning will soon appear before a federal grand jury and—likely—be forced to testify about her association with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange nearly a decade ago. A federal judge on Tuesday denied a motion filed by Manning’s legal team to quash the subpoena. Outside the U.S. District Courthouse, Manning told reporters that her attorneys “still have grounds to litigate” and would continue trying to prevent the government from compelling her testimony. Her attorneys’ bid to unseal her testimony was also denied. The subpoena, in the Eastern District of Virginia, was first reported by...

    “To be brave, you have to know so you can act.” They were South African author Sisonke Msimang’s words but could well have been the theme for this past weekend’s Antidote, a festival of ideas which focused on solutions that saw Chelsea Manning, Ronan Farrow, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maureen Dowd, Msimang and more speaking out on the Sydney Opera House stages. The event was almost overshadowed by the home affairs department’s decision to issue a notice of intention to deny Manning an entry visa on character grounds last week. But her talk went ahead regardless: Manning video-called in from Los Angeles...

    Government leaker and transgender rights advocate Chelsea Manning entered the U.S. Senate race in Maryland to huge fanfare this year, but her campaign is poised to wind down quietly Tuesday when voters head to the polls on primary day. Ms. Manning promised to shake up the race, using her high profile to push a platform that included creating a universal health care system, abolishing federal law enforcement agencies such as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and combating what she called the American “police state.” But the strain of being in the public eye after seven years in prison for leaking...
