On Tuesday, just days before leaving office, President Obama commuted the bulk of the sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking information that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “Chelsea Manning pleaded guilty to very serious crimes leaking highly classified information that put at risk the lives of our troops and our diplomats, our intelligence officers, allies who helped us around the world.”
“For the president, especially a president who has made so much recently about the danger that WikiLeaks has posed to our national security, to commute Private Manning’s sentence I think is disappointing,” Cotton went on to tell Tapper.
