Question about your comment on that Chelsea manning post, I had thought that she was in prison for a while before obama and he was the one who ended up giving her a presidential pardon? Is that not right?
No, she leaked documents that exposed war crimes from the Bush era, and the Obama administration threw her in prison in 2013, after he had campaigned on encouraging whistle blowers and assuring them they would not be prosecuted or imprisoned for exposing crimes the US government committed.
Obama ended up prosecuting more whistleblowers under the Espionage Act than every other President combined.
Democrats are just Republicans with better PR.
