JUST IN: Convicted Felon, Chelsea Manning, Running For U.S. Senate

Chelsea Manning has filed to run as a Democrat U.S. Senate candidate in Maryland.

​Bethesda, MD - Chelsea Manning, a convicted felon whose sentence was commuted by President Obama, has filed to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland.

Manning, who filed as a Democrat, will be challenging two-term seated Democrat Ben Cardin, according to Washington Post.

There are no laws preventing a convicted felon from becoming a U.S. Senator.

Manning was known as Bradley Manning, a U.S. Army soldier, when he was court-martialed for espionage in 2013 after having leaked 750,000 documents, many of them classified, to WikiLeaks.

After his conviction, Manning was sent to the Fort Leavenworth military prison. While he was serving time, Manning announced that he identified as a woman, and transitioned to become “Chelsea.”

President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s 35-year sentence in January of 2017. She had served only three years of her sentence when she was released from prison.

Since her release, Manning has become an activist for transsexual military personnel, and spends a lot of time on social media, where she’s known for her over usage of emojis.

She posted “f**k the police” on Twitter on Jan. 9, which was Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

Manning added the hashtags #DisarmThePolice, #WeGotThis, and #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay to her vulgar Jan. 9 tweet.

316,000 people follow Manning on Twitter.

It was no surprise that she followed her initial anti-police tweet with a barrage of additional cop-hating messages.

She also tweeted “police kill hundreds of people every year with absolute impunity" and “police and prosecutors steal more through ‘civil asset forfeiture’ than all ‘property crime’ combined.”

Fox & Friends conservative media pundit Michelle Malkin didn’t hold back on her feelings about Manning’s tweet during the Wednesday morning broadcast of the show.

“This person is a disgrace to the uniform that this person once wore,” Malkin said. “Over the last couple of weeks we had everybody on the left, in the media, and in politics pretending to be some sort of licensed psychologist. Well, I will tell you as Dr. Malkin, that this person is absolutely deranged.”

How did Bradley Manning end up in MD? He's a disgrace to the nation and now a disgrace to MD. Doesn't really matter though. Ben Cardin is an overwhelming favorite. He should have moved to California for a better chance.

He is a he until surgically. Then he becomes an it. Manning really needs to move to San Fran where he/it would not stand out one bit. Of course than, he/it wouldn’t be “ famous”.

Who would want a traitor to the country as a member of Congress. I know California. I live in California and most of the people I know, don't want it/she/he either. We have
enough hypocrites, nuts and bigots. Most of the compassionate people here, live in secure area, they have enough money to make them safe and their children go to public school. Also those hypocrites pay more for their outfits, than I get to live on

I always find it funny when supposedly straight men discuss in detail what sex someone else claims to be. I'd figured you'd have more important things to discuss. Is retirement really that boring?

Funny that his Twitter post today announcing his run for Senate, he said "yup, WE'RE running for senate". I even more confused. Is Bradley a he, she, it, or them?

How can this POS run for a government position. As a Senate member you should have to have a certain level of security clearance. Who would give this POS ANY clearance, therefore they can not do his/her job.
