Chelsea Manning shows look as woman after prison release

19 May 2017

With Chelsea Manning released from military prison this week, "alt-right" activist Richard Spencer reminded his followers on Twitter that he has always been a Manning supporter of sorts - seeing her as an anti-government icon.

According to her lawyers, Manning filed a transgender rights lawsuit in prison and attempted suicide twice a year ago. Manning wrote alongside a photograph of sneaker-clad feet that she published on social media.

Manning was convicted by court-martial in 2013 of espionage and other offenses for furnishing more than 700,000 documents, videos, diplomatic cables and battlefield accounts to WikiLeaks, an worldwide organization that publishes such information from anonymous sources, while she was an intelligence analyst in Iraq.

House oversight panel calls for May 24 hearing with Comey
Comey also said it made him feel "mildly nauseous" to think his actions in October might have influenced the election outcome. Striking a defiant stance, he added: "You can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

Manning announced that she was transgender in 2013, was denied the right to transition while in prison and sued the U.S. Army.

Manning's attorneys refused to tell the Associated Press and CBS News about her whereabouts or immediate plans. The Pentagon estimated it affected 7,000 active-duty and reserve personnel.

"The system Manning opposed hates us", he went on.

"I appreciate the wonderful support that I have received from so many people across the world over these past years", Manning said in an exclusive statement to ABC News.

Manning was released early Wednesday from confinement at Kansas' Fort Leavenworth, after having served seven years behind bars for giving classified materials to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
