Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning is appealing her 35-year sentence in a military prison for violating the Espionage Act. In 2010, she released more than 700,000 diplomatic cables to Wikileaks. RT America’s Anya Parampil breaks down Manning’s leak, which exposed the extrajudicial killings of 15,000 Iraqi civilians. Then, Clark Stoeckley, who attended Manning’s trial and is the author of the book ‘United States vs. Chelsea Manning’ talks about the case with Manila Chan.
