Chelsea Manning Files Maryland US Senate Bid

Chelsea Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.

Manning, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, would be challenging Democrat Ben Cardin, who has served two terms in the Senate and is up for re-election in November. Cardin is Maryland’s senior senator and is considered an overwhelming favorite to win a third term.

Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Last year, then President Obama commuted Manning’s sentence to time served and she was released from a military prison in Kansas.

 

Manning’s filing was received January 11, according to Federal Election Commission records. 

Donald Trump slammed Manning’s release statement on Twitter and described her as an “ungrateful TRAITOR” who “never should have been released from prison.”

As one of his final acts, President Obama has chosen to cap off eight years of national security failures by pardoning one of the worst traitors in modern American history: Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning. The Army private, who was charged with 22 different crimes related to espionage, pled or was convicted on almost every charge except aiding the enemy.

As a result, Manning was sentenced to 35-years in prison for leaking more than 750,000 classified documents. Yesterday, he got word he would soon be free after President Obama cut his sentence 28 years short — putting an exclamation point on two terms of President Obama’s anti-American policies.

And anyone who suggests that Manning’s sexuality had nothing to do with the decision hasn’t been paying attention. If it didn’t, the president would have commuted the sentences of others. After all, there’s Robert Hannsen, who’s serving 15 life terms without the possibility of parole for selling secrets to the Soviets. So is Aldrich Ames. And what about Jonathan Pollard, who served 28 years for giving helpful information to Israel, a U.S. ally?

Maybe if they suffered from gender confusion, their sentences would have been commuted too! In the end, this is nothing but Barack Obama solidifying his legacy as the most LGBT-obsessed administration in U.S. history. Even halfway out the door, he’s determined to give trans-activists another victory at the expense of American credibility and security. – Family Research Council hate group president Tony “Princess Tiny Meat” Perkins

It’s absolutely hilarious to hear tony Perkins describe someone else as “LGBT-obsessed”

In actuality President Obama granted commutations to 209 people and pardoned 64 others. Only one of them, Manning, was LGBT as far as anyone knows.
