Here is some history from Breitbart:
In 2013, Private Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison after he was convicted of leaking military documents to WikiLeaks.
Manning subsequently came out as transgender and underwent sex-change surgery and a name change following a hunger strike, before President Obama commuted her sentence in January 2017.
Manning, who has made a number of controversial political statements including support for the abolition of prisons, police, borders, and tradition, is currently running for U.S. Senate.
