It seems that newly-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has decided to completely reject reality. On Tuesday, the congresswoman once dubbed a “pompous little twit” for her economy-destroying Green New Deal, sought to provide cover and rally support for Chelsea Manning by falsely claiming the convicted former intelligence analyst is being held in solitary confinement and undergoing torture for allegedly being a whistle-blower.
“Related: Chelsea Manning has been trapped in solitary confinement for refusing to answer questions before a Grand Jury,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. “Solitary confinement is torture,” she claimed.
“Chelsea is being tortured for whistleblowing, she should be released on bail, and we should ban extended solitary in the US,” Ocasio-Cortez added.

Solitary confinement is torture.
Chelsea is being tortured for whistleblowing, she should be released on bail, and we should ban extended solitary in the US. https://t.co/95ef4xYt3k

No, solitary confinement is not torture. If Manning wants out of solitary confinement, he needs to answer the grand jury's questions. It's really that simple.

Refusing to answer questions before a Grand Jury is Contempt of Court which always means going to jail. As an acknowledged traitor, solitary confinement is for HIS protection and safety, not for torture. Paul Manafort did not need protection, his solitary confinement was torture.— Ray Wallace (@OnlyRayWallace) April 2, 2019
Are you even the slightest bit aware of what can happen to a inmate if they are released in general population or even a 2-3 person cell ? Someone please educate AOC— Archie Ferrarini (@ArchieFerrarini) April 2, 2019
This is absolute bullshit. She is in segregated detention fort her own safety. It is not torture. And she most certainly is NOT there for "whistleblowing". She is there because she is unconscionably refusing a lawful+proper subpoena to testify with full immunity.— bmaz (@bmaz) April 2, 2019
Manning should never have been freed.— AmeroAmigo (@AmeroAmigo) April 2, 2019
Is this another one of those April Fool spoofs? I don’t remember your sympathy when they squeezed Manafort in solitary confinement to force him to flip.— Todd Rose (@malibu1966a) April 2, 2019
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra noted that the facility where Manning is being held doesn’t even have “solitary confinement” as Ocasio-Cortez claimed:
Dana Lawhorne, the sheriff in Alexandria where Manning is held:
"Our facility does not have 'solitary confinement' and inmates housed in admin segregation for safety and security reasons still have access to social visits, books, recreation, and break time outside their cells" https://t.co/VpHF2A43RO

So, not only is Ocasio-Cortez standing with a convicted traitor, she’s spreading falsehoods and lies.
Why are we not surprised.
Manning is in protective custody inside of a jail. She’s sounding as if he is being punished but in reality the reason why Manning is in PC is because he is a danger to himself and others based on his “celebrity status” as a former soldier who gave away top military information— Chris (@realchrisferro) April 2, 2019
And it’s not like Manning is completely helpless, as Military.com reported:
A federal judge sent Manning to jail March 6 for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating Wikileaks. On Monday, Manning’s lawyers filed a motion with the federal appeals court in Richmond seeking her release on bail while that judge’s order is appealed.
Manning’s lawyers cited her medical needs related to her transgender status. They also say she was illegally electronically surveilled by the government before her grand jury appearance, and that Manning can legally refuse to answer questions derived from such surveillance.
Manning served several years in prison for leaking troves of classified documents before her sentence was commuted by then-President Barack Obama.
What’s next for the person characterized by actor James Woods as the “most dangerous” woman in America? The mind boggles…
