Chelsea Manning Is Going Back To Jail, Again

Former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning is seen speaking to reporters outside the U.S. federal courthouse in this frame grab from video taken shortly before she entered the coourthouse to appear before a federal judge regarding a federal gra

Raw video: Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning says her stance about testifying before a grand jury about her contacts with WikiLeaks has not changed.

"I would rather starve to death than to change my opinion in this regard". When Manning left jail, she was greeted with a new subpoena to appear on May 16.

A federal appeals court has rejected an effort by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to be released from jail following a court holding her in contempt last month.

Manning was released last week after a grand jury's 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.

In an additional unprecedented move to put increasing pressure on Manning, the district judge coercively ruled that after 30 days the whistleblower will be fined $500 for every day behind bars.

The questioning was apparently part of a continued effort by federal prosecutors investigating WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Manning was subsequently held in contempt. Manning's lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, said after the hearing that her client would not back down.

The indictment against Assange alleges that he conspired with Manning to try and crack a password stored on US Defence Department computers connected to a classified government data network.

Previous seasons of Rick and Morty have premiered in the summer, but protracted negotiations over the show's renewal postponed production.

The questions asked by the previous panel were very "broad and generic", the same things asked at the court-martial, Manning told reporters, speculating that the government is trying to "re-litigate" that trial because it did not like the outcome.

At a short press conference prior to a Thursday hearing, Manning said she was prepared to return to jail "indefinitely" rather than testify. "It is telling that the United States has always been more concerned with the disclosure of those documents than with the damning substance of the disclosures".

Trenga responded, "There's nothing dishonorable in discharging your responsibility as a US citizen".

She went on to say that the Trump administration was "obsessed with unwinding Obama's legacy, from health care to Chelsea's commutation".

She served seven years in a military prison for leaking a trove of documents to WikiLeaks before then-President Barack Obama commuted the remainder of her 35-year sentence.

In a statement at the time she was taken into custody, Manning said she "will not participate in a secret process that I morally object to, particularly one that has been historically used to entrap and persecute activists for protected political speech".

Manning, whose arrest was confirmed by members of her support committee, was detained after refusing to answer questions concerning her past association with WikiLeaks.
