Chelsea Manning’s Request For Clemency Denied
WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning will not receive clemency from the United States military, the US Army said on Monday afternoon.
A news release circulated by the US Army Military District of Washington early Monday confirmed that the Pentagon official who could have agreed to reduce or eliminate the sentence imposed last year on the former intelligence analyst declined to do so. The case will next automatically be sent to the Army Court of Criminals Appeals.
