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.
