The former U.S. military intelligence analyst who leaked thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks was released from jail yesterday. After being in custody since May for refusing to testify before a grand jury, a judge determined that Manning's testimony is no longer needed — a day after her lawyers said she tried to kill herself in the Alexandria, Virginia, facility. She is reportedly recovering in a local hospital.
Is she off the hook? Manning, who'd served seven years in prison before her 35-year sentence was commuted in 2017, still faces more than $250,000 in fines over her insistence on staying silent.
