President Barack Obama has shortened the prison sentence of former Army private and whistleblower Chelsea Manning, She will be released on May 17, instead of remaining in military custody until 2045 as originally sentenced.
Sentenced under US Army Court Martial to 35 years' imprisonment in August 2013, Manning had leaked to WikiLeaks thousands of documents that came to be known as the Iraq War Logs and the Afghan War Diary.

That's great news.
Chelsea would have died in that prison, and all for telling the truth.
Should be pardoned immediately, but this is a good step.
6 months is better than 30 years.

Obama commutes much of Chelsea Manning's sentence
Free sex change.
Free room and board.
Not surprising in the least.
Back to calling Trump a traitor, and commutation of a TRAITORS SENTENCE.
