We have got to be living in a real life episode of PUNKD! There is no way in heck that Chelsea Manning can seriously believe he stands a chance in running for Senate….but that did not stop the traitor from filing in Maryland.
Manning, a transgender who is famously known for being a traitor, was pardoned by Obama just before he left office. Now the 30-year-old is submitting candidacy to the Federal Election Commission.
He’s running as a Democrat, of course.
Manning will run against Sen. Ben Cardin (D), Maryland’s senior senator, for the party nomination in November. Cardin is expected to win the race to serve a third term.
Manning was convicted in 2013 of releasing confidential military and State Department documents, but her 35-year sentence was commuted by then-President Obama to seven years, starting at the beginning of her confinement in 2010.
In his statement, Obama said that Manning’s sentence was “disproportionate” to those faced by other whistleblowers.
Manning has been active in advocating for LGBT and other causes since being released earlier this year. In July, she protested Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from the armed forces at a rally at the White House.
Chelsea Manning has decided to run for the U.S. Senate. The last place that traitor and cop-hater belongs is in the Senate. He's a disgrace to this country.
