Judge Rejects New Hearing for Jailed Whistleblower Chelsea Manning as Fines Mount

HeadlineAug 09, 2019

The penalties began at $500 per day and have now risen to $1,000 daily, as Manning refuses to testify about her leak of hundreds of thousands of secret State Department and Pentagon documents to WikiLeaks — including evidence of U.S. war crimes.
