Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning tried to “take her own life” in a Virginia jail on Wednesday ahead of a looming court date, her legal team said in a statement.
She has been recovering and is still expected to appear in court for a hearing Friday after refusing to testify before a grand jury in a WikiLeaks probe, the attorneys said.
Manning was re-arrested last May for failing to comply with the subpoena to testify after serving two months for the same issue. …
She told the judge in May she’d “rather starve to death” than comply with the subpoena.
