Throwing a spanner in the works if you ask me.
Ms. Manning, who was found guilty of leaking more than 700,000 government files to WikiLeaks in 2013, would face Senator Benjamin L. Cardin in the
Democratic primary race this year. Mr. Cardin is Maryland’s senior senator and the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
In 2012, the senator cruised to victory in the general election after winning the Democratic primary race with nearly 75 percent of the vote.
Once she's able to defeat Cardin (D), she'll face the Republican challanger for senator. Maryland is fairly Democratic so I'd imagine her biggest
hurdle would be overcomng the Democratic Primary.
I wonder what Assange would have to say? I'm getting mixed responses... I think he'll remain silent. I hope she unseats Cardin and sets a chain
reaction for other establishment senators and congressmen and women to be unseated too, through both parties.
Chelsea Manning had her sentence
by president Obama before he
passed on to the Trump administration. Trump himself hasn't been much of a fan of Chelsea, referring to her as an
. Manning has been fairly
critical of Trump. Her most recent comments referred to
the troop casualties
and how the Trump administration has continued this trend. Doesn't help the fact the adminstration has ramped up
surveillance and drone use.
These mid-terms should be interesting.
