President Obama commuted (all but four months of) the remainder of Bradley (who identifies as a woman named Chelsea) Manning’s 35-year prison sentence. Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, was convicted of “stealing and disseminating 750,000 pages of documents and videos to WikiLeaks” in 2010. Under the terms of the commutation announced by the Obama Administration, Manning is set to be released on May 17, 2017.
