  • Charges Against Julian Assange Reveal Why Chelsea Manning Is In Jail

    Charges were announced by the Justice Department against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday. The charges provide new insight into why federal prosecutors sought to question whistleblower Chelsea Manning last month, Gizmodo says. Manning was imprisoned in early March as a recalcitrant witness after refusing to answer the grand jury’s questions. The charges against Assange indicate that prosecutors wanted to question Manning over online discussions the two shared. Assange allegedly aided Manning in attempting to crack a password that would provide access to a Defense Department network. Manning was convicted in 2013 of leaking classified U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks. Manning remains in prison and was just released from solitary confinement on April 4, 2019.
