FORT LEAVENWORTH — Chelsea Manning, er, well yeah Chelsea Manning, is back in the news. According to lawyers for Manning, 28, she was hospitalized this week after an apparent suicide attempt in her Leavenworth cell.
Except, there’s a problem. Fort Leavenworth won’t Manning’s lawyers speak to her, as, they are reportedly keeping her lawyers from her.
“We’re shocked and outraged that an official at Leavenworth contacted the press with private confidential medical information about Chelsea Manning yet no one at the Army has given a shred of information to her legal team,” says lead attorney Nancy Hollander.
