Chelsea Manning

The latest coverage on Chelsea Manning, the transgender woman at the center of the WikiLeaks case. Born as Bradley Manning, Chelsea Manning came out about her trans identity after the 2013 trial surrounding her involvement with WikiLeaks, a nonprofit website founded by Julian Assange that published history's largest leak of information from the U.S. government, provided by Manning. Chelsea Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act, dishonorably discharged, and sentenced to 35 years of confinement. She remains a controversial figure, with some viewing her as a whistleblower and hero, while others perceive her act as traiterous.

The controversial leaker of military documents spoke to The Advocate about running for Senate, what she would say to Obama, and her controversial decision to attend an alt-right gathering.
