"A petition to commute the sentence of Chelsea Manning, the U.S. soldier serving a 37-year prison sentence for leaking classified government documents, reached a new threshold that should force the White House to respond. The White House petition to commute Manning's sentence surpassed the 100,000 signatures required late Saturday, meaning her supporters could get an official response within 60 days. The petition was created on November 14." (12/11/16)
