Barack Obama – Julian Assange Is My Guy – Commutes Sentence Of Chelsea Manning
Barack Obama sends his final messages to the American people and the political world – even democrats are shocked. We can only assume this was some type of trade with Wikileaks … they must of killed further documents that would have crushed his legacy as President.
Chelsea Manning was convicted of stealing and distributing over 750,000 pages of classified documents and videos to Wikileaks. She’s a transgender and former Army soldier. The documents she released back in 2010 were stated to help Wikileaks rise to internet dominance.
President Obama overruled his secretary of defense to commute the sentence of Chelsea Manning.
House Speaker Paul Ryan didn’t seem to pleased stating – “President Obama now leaves in place a dangerous precedent that those who compromise our national security won’t be held accountable for their crimes.” Basically it’s cool to leak docs to the Wiki.
Chelsea was set to be released in 2045, but she can walk the streets on May 17, 2017. On a side note – Ms. Manning has tried to kill herself in prison numerous times, so we’re not sure if this swayed Obama’s decision.
