Good morning everyone.
Today, Pvt Chelsea Manning, US Army, was released from Leavenworth. She was serving a prison sentence for conviction on 20 counts of espionage. She had turned over countless documents at varied levels of classification to Wikileaks. I remind everyone that Wikileaks is run by a man wanted for questioning for a rape in Sweden. The man has been hiding out in the Ecuadoran embassy in London for several years now. Former President Obama granted Pvt Manning clemency in the closing days of his presidency.
This is okay though. For reasons that are lost on me, President Trump is not allowed to talk with his counterparts of other nations.
The hypocrisy of the reaction to the President is glaring today.
Have a good day.
