Chelsea Manning Says She ‘Took Opportunity’ to Gather Intelligence on ‘Alt-Right’

Chelsea Manning tweeted Monday that she previously “took up an opportunity” to gather intelligence on fascists and the so-called alt-right without elaborating further, adding that she is running for the U.S. Senate in Maryland because the “world should be better for everyone.”

Manning—who earlier this month announced her bid to challenge Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.), the ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in the Democratic primary this June—wrote on Twitter that fascists and the alt-right “peddle” a threatening ideology and do not deserve a platform. She added that she has gathered intelligence on them, without explaining how or when she went about it.

It is unclear if Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, was referring to her intelligence work in Iraq as the “opportunity” to gather information on the alt-right.

Maning in 2013 was convicted of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. documents to WikiLeaks and sentenced to 35 years in prison. She was released in 2017 after then-President Barack Obama commuted her prison sentence.

Recently, Manning, a transgender woman, has castigated congressional Democrats for not bringing about change in Washington, D.C. Last week, she released her first campaign video in which she blasts Democratic Party leaders for not standing up to President Donald Trump.
