Chelsea Manning Subpoenaed In Julian Assange Probe

The Washington Post reports:

Chelsea Manning has been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in the investigation of Julian Assange, officials said, one of several indicators that prosecutors remain interested in WikiLeaks’ publication of diplomatic cables and military war logs in 2010.

Prosecutors in Virginia have been pursuing a case based on conduct that predates WikiLeaks’ publication of hacked emails during the 2016 presidential campaign, and it’s not clear investigators are interested in that activity.

Officials discussed the investigation of Assange, who founded WikiLeaks, on the condition of anonymity because of the secrecy of the grand jury process.

Manning has filed a motion to quash the subpoena, saying she has “nothing to contribute” to the case.
