Chelsea Manning is a traitor. The only reason he/she is walking free is that President Obama doesn’t care about the rule of law. If he did, Manning would be in jail. If you aren’t familiar. Here’s Manning’s background.
From Washington Post:
A military judge on Wednesday sentenced Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison, bringing to a close the government’s determined pursuit of the Army intelligence analyst who leaked the largest cache of classified documents in U.S. history.
The long prison term is likely to hearten national security officials who have been rattled by the subsequent leaks from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. Manning’s conviction might also encourage the government to bring charges against the man who was instrumental in the publication of the documents, Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks.
Manning, 25, was acquitted last month of the most serious charge he faced — aiding the enemy — but was convicted of multiple other counts, including violations of the Espionage Act, for copying and disseminating classified military field reports, State Department cables, and assessments of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
For some reason, Obama let Manning off the hook.
Now that Chelsea is free, she is thinking about running for Senate.
Not only that, she’s released a campaign video.
From The Daily Caller:
Chelsea Manning, the transgender woman and former Army private convicted under the Espionage Act of leaking thousands of sensitive government documents, released a campaign video for her Senate run in Maryland.
On YouTube, a warning appears before the video, stating, “This video may be inappropriate for some users.”
Anddd here’s the video.
You have to imagine that this Senate bid is a long shot but it’s still pretty ridiculous.
From Fox News:
Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, confirmed Sunday that she’s running in Maryland for a Senate seat.
“Yup, we’re running for Senate,” Manning tweeted three days after she filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.
The tweet also included a campaign video indicating her intention to run in the 2018 Maryland Democratic primary and was followed by a tweet seeking donations to her campaign.
She is running for the seat held by two-term Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin.
Maryland is in trouble.
Can you imagine Chelsea Manning in the Senate?
Apparently, it’s totally cool to be a criminal and run for Senate in this country.
