Harvard strips Chelsea Manning of title amid CIA spat

Harvard University reversed its decision to name Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow early Friday, a day after CIA Director Mike Pompeo scrapped a planned appearance over the title for the soldier who was convicted of leaking classified information.
Douglas Elmendorf, the dean of the universitys John F. Kennedy School of Government, wrote in a statement posted to the universitys website that naming Manning a visiting fellow was a mistake, even though he said the title carries no special honour.
We invited Chelsea Manning to spend a day at the Kennedy School, he wrote. On that basis, we also named Chelsea Manning a Visiting Fellow. We did not intend to honour her in any way or to endorse any of her words or deeds, as we do not honour or endorse any Fellow.
Elmendorf apologized to Manning and to many concerned people he said he had heard from for not recognizing upfront the full implications of our original invitation. Manning is still invited to spend a day at the school and speak to students, though without the visiting fellow title, he wrote.
Manning responded on Twitter early Friday, writing that she was honoured to be 1st disinvited trans woman visiting @harvard fellow.
They chill marginalized voices under @cia pressure, she said while also accusing the school of letting the CIA determine what is and is not taught.
Mannings publicist didnt immediately respond when asked if she would still accept Harvards invitation to visit the school.
The 29-year-old Manning is a transgender woman who was known as Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of leaking a trove of classified documents. She was released from a military prison in May after serving seven years of a 35-year sentence, which was commuted by former President Barack Obama in his final days in office. Obama said in January he felt justice had been served. Manning explained on ABCs Good Morning America in a recent interview that she was prompted to give the information to WikiLeaks because of the human toll of the death, destruction and mayhem she saw while serving in Iraq.
Pompeo was a last-minute cancellation at a speaking event at Harvard on Thursday night. Minutes after the event was to begin, Elmendorf took the stage and told the audience Pompeo was not there and would not speak.
The CIA later released a letter that Pompeo, who has a law degree from Harvard, wrote to a university official. Pompeo said an appearance would betray the trust of CIA employees and stressed that his decision had nothing to do with Mannings transgender identity.
It has everything to do with her identity as a traitor to the United States of America and my loyalty to the officers of the CIA, Pompeo said.
Earlier Thursday, Mike Morell, a former deputy director and acting director of the CIA, resigned from his post as a senior fellow at the Kennedy School, telling Elmendorf in a letter that he could not be part of an organization that honours a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.
In addition to Manning, Harvard this week invited former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski to serve as visiting fellows.

Chelsea Manning says she was denied entry to Canada for convictions similar to treason

OTTAWA The former U.S. soldier who leaked thousands of classified military documents says shes been barred from entering Canada as a result of her criminal record.
Chelsea Manning posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials online Monday detailing the reasons she was denied entry at a Quebec border crossing late last week.
Manning is a 29-year-old transgender woman who was known as Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of leaking the trove of classified material.
The letter says that because she was convicted of offences that are equivalent to treason in Canada, shes inadmissable to this country.
On Twitter, Manning says shell be appealing the decision.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked about the issue at an event in Toronto on Monday and while he declined to comment, he also said he was looking forward to seeing more details about the situation.

Chelsea Manning to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland

NORTH BETHESDA, Md. Chelsea Manning intends to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, returning the transgender former soldier to the spotlight after her conviction for leaking classified documents and her early release from military prison.
Manning, 30, filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday, listing an apartment in North Bethesda as her address.
She is running as a Democrat and will likely challenge two-term Sen. Ben Cardin in the primary. The states senior senator is an overwhelming favourite to win.
Known as Bradley Manning at the time of her 2010 arrest, the former Army intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking more than 700,000 military and State Department documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Shes been hailed as a traitor as well as a courageous hero.
Manning came out as transgender after being sentenced to 35 years in prison. President Barack Obama granted Manning clemency before leaving office last year.
The conservative media organization Red Maryland first reported Mannings intention to run.
The Associated Press was unsuccessful in reaching Manning for comment. She told The Washington Post on Saturday that she might release more information in the coming days.
Cardin spokeswoman Sue Walitsky did not directly address Mannings candidacy or anyone elses. But she told The AP that Cardin is looking forward to a vigorous debate of the issues and a robust conversation with Maryland voters.
Manning would not be the first transgender candidate to challenge a sitting member of Congress.
Kristin Beck, a retired Navy SEAL who is transgender, failed to unseat U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer in Marylands Democratic Primary in 2016. Beck got 12 per cent of the vote.
It was too much for me to run for Congress, Beck said in a phone interview Saturday. I should have run for something lower (state or local office). She might as well be running for president.
Beck said Manning is pulling a publicity stunt.
I totally, 100 per cent disagree with everything she did, Beck said. Shes just grabbing headlines. I know what that feels like. Ive been in the headlines. You get a sense that youre worthy and doing something that counts. And when you lose that, you try to do something to grab a headline.
Manning had said she wanted to expose what she considered to be the U.S. militarys disregard of the effects of war on civilians and she released information that she didnt believe would harm the U.S.
Obamas decision to commute Mannings sentence to about seven years drew strong criticism from members of Congress and others, with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan calling the move just outrageous.
When Manning was released from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, in May, she told The AP in an email that she was eager to define her future but made no mention of politics.
Im figuring things out right now which is exciting, awkward, fun, and all new for me, Manning wrote.
The Oklahoma native had planned to move to Maryland, where she has an aunt. She has been registered to vote at the apartment in North Bethesda since mid-August, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections.
Her recent move would not affect a Senate bid. To run for that office, a person must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for nine years and an inhabitant of the state at election time, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections. A felony conviction does not appear to preclude a run.
Manning is yet to file for the primary with the state elections board, which she must do in person by Feb. 27, according to the boards website.
Cardin is also yet to file. But campaign finance reports show that his organization had nearly $2 million cash on hand in late September.

Not only does a felony conviction "appear" to not be a bar, it isn't. The Supreme Court has ruled that the list of qualifications for the Senate, the House, and the Presidency in the Constitution are exclusive. No qualifications or disqualifiers can be added except by Constitutional amendment.

A currently-serving Representative, Alcee Hastings, spent time in prison on a felony conviction.

Chelsea Manning behind bars for refusing to testify on Wikileaks

ALEXANDRIA, Va. Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who served years in prison for leaking one of the largest troves of classified documents in U.S. history, has been sent to jail for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating Wikileaks.
U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton ordered Manning to jail for contempt of court Friday after a brief hearing in which Manning confirmed she has no intention of testifying. She told the judge she will accept whatever you bring upon me.
Manning has said she objects to the secrecy of the grand jury process, and that she already revealed everything she knows at her court-martial.
The judge said she will remain jailed until she testifies or until the grand jury concludes its work.
Mannings lawyers had asked that she be sent to home confinement instead of the jail because of medical complications she faces.
The judge said U.S. marshals can handle her medical care. Prosecutor Tracy McCormick said the jail and the marshals have assured the government that her medical needs can be met.
Manning anticipated being jailed. In a statement before Fridays hearing, she said she invoked her First, Fourth and Sixth amendment protections when she appeared before the grand jury in Alexandria on Wednesday. She said she already answered every substantive question during her 2013 court-martial, and is prepared to face the consequences of refusing to answer again.

In solidarity with many activists facing the odds, I will stand by my principles. I will exhaust every legal remedy available, she said.
Manning served seven years of a 35-year military sentence for leaking a trove of military and diplomatic documents to the anti-secrecy website before then-President Barack Obama commuted her sentence.
The Wikileaks investigation has been ongoing for a long time. Last year, prosecutors in Alexandria inadvertently disclosed that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is facing unspecified, sealed criminal charges in the district.
Wikileaks also has emerged as an important part of Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation into possible Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential election, as investigators focus on whether President Donald Trumps campaign knew Russian hackers were going to provide emails to Wikileaks stolen from Democratic organizations, including presidential candidate Hillary Clintons campaign.
But there is no indication that the Alexandria grand jurys investigation of Wikileaks is related to the Mueller investigation.
McCormick said Manning can end the incarceration on the civil charge simply by following the law and testifying.
We hope she changes her mind now, McCormick said.
Mannings lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, said she believes jailing Manning is an act of cruelty given her medical issues, and said Mannings one-bedroom apartment would be a sufficient manner of confinement.
Outside the courthouse, about 10 protesters rallied in her support.
Obviously, prison is a terrible place, Manning said. I dont see the purpose to incarcerate people.

Not sure what special medical needs she has to have...

But if she's already said everything in her previous court case, then the Government should have that/be able to see that record and she shouldn't need to testify again.

On the other hand, people are called up to testify over and over for court cases of similar/branching issues, so re-testifying shouldn't be an issue, especially if she repeats the same testimony over again.

And her objection to grand jury secrecy might seem admirable, but it has it's reasons why it's secret.

IMO, she needs to just stop being a twat.

Chelsea Manning doc debuts with its subject imprisoned again

Chelsea Manning Arrested For Refusing To...
featured by
NEW YORK Three years in the making, the Chelsea Manning documentary XY Chelsea premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival after being frantically recut to update the film with the latest turn in the saga of the former intelligence analyst.
The filmmakers had envisioned a more celebratory evening.
A few weeks ago, we were planning for her to be with us on the stage, director Tim Travers Hawkins said in an interview. Obviously, things can change fast.
In May 2017, Manning walked out of the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, after President Barack Obama commuted her 35-year sentence for leaking troves of military and diplomatic materials some 750,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks. Hawkins, having already connected with Manning through her friend Lisa Rein and Mannings legal team, was there filming her release.
The very first time I saw her was through the camera lens, he said.

XY Chelsea, which Showtime will air in the U.S. on June 7 after a limited theatrical run beginning in Los Angeles on May 10, is an intimate look at what followed for Manning, who was known as Pvt. Bradley Manning when she was arrested in 2010 after, while on leave from Iraq, she uploaded the Army reports that came to be known as the Iraq War Logs.
Almost two years after being freed, Manning was jailed again in March after being found in contempt for refusing to answer questions before a grand jury about WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, who was arrested on April 11 at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Manning can be held as long as the government believes it still needs her testimony in the case, a process that could take years.
Mannings lawyers have said the government is abusing the grand jury process and that she disclosed everything she knew in earlier court-martial proceedings. I dont have anything to contribute to this, or another grand jury, Manning said in an earlier statement. While I miss home, they can continue to hold me in jail, with all the harmful consequences that brings.
Manning was in solitary confinement for a month but is now jailed with the prisons general population.
Im very concerned about her being there and Im concerned about what this means for the rest of her life, that this is just another example, said Nancy Hollander, an attorney for Manning, after the films screening Wednesday night. The government is going to continue to go after her.

Producer Isabel Davis said XY Chelsea was done and locked when Manning was again imprisoned. Changing the ending was, she says, obviously quite a hard thing to make happen.
Its taken a lot of good will on peoples parts to make it happen, said Davis.
Hawkins adds, though, that the arc of the film remains the same, that there was always an ominous sense of concern around Manning, an impending doom that Manning herself mentions in the film.
The film captures Manning as she gets acquainted to both herself and to civilian life after seven years imprisoned. Manning is seen learning how to put on make-up in the film and playing video games. She discusses her anguished upbringing in small-town Oklahoma and her impromptu enlistment.
Im not the person people think I am, Manning says.
The effect on her of more than 170 days in solitary confinement she spent, beginning in Kuwait, is apparent. Manning several times tried committing suicide in prison.
I just remember whenever I was in Kuwait that I died. I was alive but I was dead, Manning says in the film. And Ive been dead ever since.
Hawkins says he hopes XY Chelsea will allow people to know Manning in an emotional way. For him, Mannings difficult young life as an outsider to her family and to society led to her empathy for the victims of the Iraq War.
The media played a part in really distorting the relationship between her identity and the disclosures, says Hawkins. Part of what this film is is teasing that apart in order to reframe it.
That frame is, in part, a coming of age story, albeit one in extraordinary circumstances, and always with a shadow over it.
Three years ago today, I have a letter from Chelsea when she was still in prison at Leavenworth, says Hawkins. And she makes kind of a dark joke: I think Im going to miss the premiere.

FALLS CHURCH, Va. Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning was released from a northern Virginia jail Thursday after a two-month stay for refusing to testify to a grand jury.
Manning spent 62 days at the Alexandria Detention Center on civil contempt charges after she refused to answer questions to a federal grand jury investigating WikiLeaks.
Her lawyers fear her freedom may be short-lived, though. She was released only because the grand jurys term expired. Before she left the jail, she received another subpoena demanding her testimony on May 16 to a new grand jury.
Her lawyers say she will again refuse to answer questions and could again face another term of incarceration.
Manning 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.

Earlier this week, Mannings lawyers filed court papers arguing that she should not be jailed for civil contempt because she has proven that she will stick to her principles and wont testify no matter how long shes jailed.
Federal law only allows a recalcitrant witness to be jailed on civil contempt if theres a chance that the incarceration will coerce the witness into testifying. If a judge were to determine that incarcerating Manning were punitive rather than coercive, Manning would not be jailed.
At this point, given the sacrifices she has already made, her strong principles, her strong and growing support community, and the disgrace attendant to her capitulation, it is inconceivable that Chelsea Manning will ever change her mind about her refusal to co-operate with the grand jury, her lawyers wrote.
Manning filed an eight-page statement with the court on Monday, outlining her resolve. She wrote that co-operation with this grand jury is simply not an option. Doing so would mean throwing away all of my principles, accomplishments, sacrifices, and erase decades of my reputation an obvious impossibility, she wrote.
She also said she was suffering disproportionately in jail because of physical problems related with inadequate follow-up care to gender-reassignment surgery.

But if a judge finds her in contempt of court again, she could wind up back in jail.
Manning spent seven years in prison for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks. She walked free in May 2017 after President Barack Obama commuted her 35-year sentence.
Recently, she spent two months in jail for refusing to answer one grand jurys questions about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Now, a second grand jury has subpoenaed her.
She told CNNs Reliable Sources on Sunday that she has nothing more to offer than what shes already provided in her own case.
