Default Obama Commutes Bulk of Chelsea Manning’s Sentence

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/17/u...=Homepage&_r=0

President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration, and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.
Now, under the terms of Mr. Obama’s commutation announced by the White House on Tuesday, Ms. Manning is set to be freed on May 17 of this year, rather than in 2045.

Assange behind bars would be much better than Manning behind bars, though I really doubt Assange will actually turn himself in.

You people are easily pleased by the stupidest gestures.

Julian Assange will not hand himself in because Chelsea Manning's release won't happen immediately, lawyer says

Bradley Manning doesn't deserve to be released. He's in the same boat as Berghdal imo
