Barack Obama Cuts Chelsea Manning's Sentence Short

Barack Obama Cuts Chelsea Manning's Sentence Short

Barack Obama is cutting Chelsea Manning‘s prison sentence short, the White House just announced.

The 29-year-old former Army intelligence was convicted of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks and has served seven years of a 35-year sentence, the longest punishment ever in the U.S. for a leaks conviction.

Chelsea, who is a transgendered woman, has attempted suicide twice while in a male prison but will be released on May 17th.

The news comes just a week after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange agreed to extradite to the U.S. if Chelsea was freed.

Julian currently remains in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and it is not clear if a deal has been struck.

    Obama is a monumental moron. Let’s pardon Charles Manson, Jeffrey MacDonald, OJ and everyone in Gitmo. Never has a president hated his country like Obama does.
