Utopia Talk / Politics / Bradley Manning back in jail

Fuckers. Looks like the deep state went be happy until it's gotten its retribution against everyone who helped Trump win.


Chelsea Manning taken into custody for refusing to testify before secret grand jury

Mar 8, 2019, 11:52 AM ET

Chelsea Manning, an anti-secrecy activist and former U.S. Army intelligence analyst whose release of classified information to WikiLeaks in 2010 sparked worldwide controversy over transparency in the military and whistleblower protections, was taken into custody at a federal court on Friday after a federal judge found her in contempt of court for refusing to answer questions before a secret grand jury.

In late January, Manning was subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury in a sealed case out of the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia -- the same district in which the government recently inadvertently revealed the existence of a sealed indictment against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.

On Friday, after refusing to answer the grand jury’s questions, U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton found Manning in contempt of court and ordered her to be held in jail until she decides to testify or until the grand jury concludes its work -- which could be up to 18 months, a lawyer for Manning said.

I guess he needs us to pay for more surgery.

"Fuckers. Looks like the deep state went be happy until it's gotten its retribution against everyone who helped Trump win. '

why can't Donald pardon Manning, instead of wasting his powers of pardons on shitheads like sheriff arapaio, if Manning helped him to the WH?

Not Manning, Wikileaks.

If jailing Manning = retribution to wikileaks for helping to elect Trump, then pardoning Manning would put a stop to this retribution, no?

Why not issue pardons for Cohen, Manafort and himself while he's at it?

I don't know, I think he might do that before he pardons Manning.

And I think if you want to divert this thread with a "OMG TRUMP HATES MANNING" red herring, I'm not on board.

how is my statement about reversing the supposed deep state attack on donald 'diverts' the thread about deep state attack on donald? Pardon wouldn't be about trump's feeling about manning, it would be about striking back at the deep state

Manafort probably will get pardoned, he's certainly been playing for one the whole time

it was suspicious Trump never attacked him or called him a rat when Manafort supposedly cooperating, only ever positive comments for the criminal... then we learned he was lying + giving info to WH, so i guess that explains that...

then at sentencing, Manafort expressed no regret, and his lawyer noted 'no collusion!' afterward which isn't particularly relevant (but obviously Trump heard it as he tweeted it)

Toss the case and disbar the judge.
