Our new Vice President, Mike Pence, is not thrilled about Obama commuting the prison sentence of Americas “tranny traitor” Chelsea Manning.
Chelsea Manning, also known as Bradley Manning, is responsible for leaking top-secret documents to Wikileaks. This was a direct betrayal of his status in the Military.
He was to serve about 35 years in prison, but ex-President Obama commuted his/her sentence.
Mike Pence believes it was a mistake to turn a traitor into a martyr. You don’t take someone who has purposely betrayed their country and release them as if nothing happened.
Pence was on Fox News to talk about his dismay for Private Manning.

“To commute Private Manning’s sentence was a mistake,” Pence said Wednesday night as he lashed out at the president’s decision to commute Chelsea Manning’s 35-year prison sentence for releasing classified documents to WikiLeaks. Manning was sentenced as Army Private Bradley Manning.
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr,” Pence said during an interview with Brett Baier of Fox News.
“Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange, compromised individuals in Afghanistan who were cooperating with our forces by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks,” he continued.
750,000 documents leaked that could have scrutinized national security. Would a fair sentence be for Manning to serve 750,000 minutes in prison? That’s only 12,500 hours, 520.83 days.
Not sure that’s enough time for betraying your brethren and country.
And you know where this rabbit hole goes? It goes into the “what if it was good for the country to have some transparency?” I agree that there could’ve been some light at the end of a speculative tunnel, but we must forget what level us mere citizens are on. We’re on a need to know basis. If we’re going to work, spending time with friends and family, then whatever is going on outside of our own personal bubble, deep down in the pits of the government – is unlikely to directly affect us in a way that would cause a huge difference in our lives.
Do we want transparency? Yes, of course we do. But there’s also things that, for a matter of national security, we don’t need to know.
I’m over here doing my thing. You’re over there doing your thing. The government is going to do what they’re going to do.
As long as it’s not infringing on our basic constitutional rights, then I’m going to sit back and mind my own business.
My grandfather lived to be 106 years old? You know how?
He minded his f*cking business and he loved his country.
