Yep. Chelsea Manning is back in jail

Former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning is seen speaking to reporters outside the U.S. federal courthouse in this frame grab from video taken shortly before she entered the coourthouse to appear before a federal judge regarding a federal gra

A federal judge remanded Chelsea Manning into federal custody Thursday for again refusing to testify before a grand jury in the WikiLeaks investigation.

Ms. Manning has offered multiple reasons for refusing to testify, but fundamentally, says she considers the whole grand jury process to be unacceptable.

"I would rather starve to death than to change my opinion in this regard", said Manning.

Chelsea Manning was ordered to be returned to jail on Thursday, just a week after she was freed following two months in custody.

The Army intelligence officer-turned-leaker will return to the slammer after refusing to testify before a grand jury that is investigating WikiLeaks.

She was released last week when the grand jury's mandate expired, and was called to testify before a new one on Thursday which she said was seeking answers to the same set of questions.

When Chelsea Manning was released from jail last week after the grand jury she was stonewalling was dismissed, I suggested that she really enjoy some hot food and sleeping in a comfortable bed because she probably wouldn't be out for long. Manning's lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, said after the hearing that her client would not back down.

An indictment alleges that he conspired with Manning to access classified documents, helping her to crack a computer password.

The remaining three are unannounced titles that will be released in Q4 FY2020, which is between January 1st and March 31st, 2020. Producer Karl Luhe confirmed the news during a community update video, which was posted to Skull & Bones' official Twitter page.

The questions asked by the previous panel were very "broad and generic", the same things asked at the court-martial, Manning told reporters, speculating that the government is trying to "re-litigate" that trial because it did not like the outcome.

Manning's attorneys attempted to challenge the subpoena during a sealed hearing at the U.S. District Court in Alexandria today, but Trenga said he was not persuaded by their arguments. "It is telling that the USA has always been concerned with the disclosure of those documents than their damning substance". Under federal law, a recalcitrant witness can be jailed for civil contempt only if there's a reasonable possibility that the incarceration will coerce the witness into testifying. Former President Barack Obama shortened her sentence before leaving office.

Manning previously served seven years in military prison for WikiLeaks crimes before most of the 35-year sentence was commuted in the final days of the Obama administration.

She added that the prosecutors were asking her to violate her principles and she would not do that.

"There's nothing dishonourable in discharging your responsibility as a USA citizen", Judge Trenga told her.

We "never once made this about anything other than obtaining immunized testimony in furtherance of an investigation", he said, adding that "all we want is her to truthfully answer questions as our constitutional republic requires of our citizens".

U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger declined to say why the government continued to seek Manning's testimony.
