AOC rejects reality, falsely claims Chelsea Manning ‘being tortured for whistleblowing’

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.

Twitter responded:

Others responded:

Good point.

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:

So, not only is Ocasio-Cortez standing with a convicted traitor, she’s spreading falsehoods and lies.

Why are we not surprised.

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…
