Following her deployment to Iraq in 2009 as a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, Manning leaked more than 725,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks, including military battlefield reports and U.S. State Department cables. She has already served seven years of a 35-year sentence in a military prison, including a year in solitary confinement. However, Manning hoped to avoid re-imprisonment by proving to the grand jury that she could never be compelled to cooperate under any circumstances, because she objects to the existence of grand juries on principle and because she says she already testified about the material in question during her 2013 court-martial.
"I would rather starve to death than change my position in this regard", she told the court.
Former President Barack Obama later reduced Manning's sentence and she was released in May 2017.
Fresh off a 62-day incarceration for defying a grand jury subpoena, Chelsea Manning, the former U.S. Army intelligence analyst and anti-secrecy activist, was remanded again Thursday afternoon after a federal judge held her in contempt of court.
After Thursday's hearing, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, G. Zachary Terwilliger, told reporters that the "only thing being asked of [Manning] is to answer questions truthfully".
"No matter what happens today", Manning said, "I'm not going to comply with this grand jury".
Manning's attorney, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, addressed the media after Manning was returned to jail, expressing her disappointment and reiterating that her client would not betray her convictions by testifying.
He ordered a fine of $500 a day if she does not testify within 30 days, raising that to $1,000 a day if she does not testify within 60 days.
Manning was taken immediately to a local jail in Alexandria, Virginia.
Manning's latest confinement will persist until she complies with the subpoena or until the grand jury expires, U.S. Judge Anthony Trenga said in court on Thursday.
"The case doesn't make sense, it's very bananas", she said.
The new grand jury subpoena appears to be related to the USA prosecution of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, who was arrested last month and is now awaiting his extradition hearing in the UK. Her refusal to testify in front of a secret grand jury on the grounds that they are undemocratic means she has now been taken into custody again until she changes her mind.
While the nature of the grand jury's probe remains unknown, it convenes at the same federal court where prosecutors recently filed charges against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.
Concerns about resources for Manning's medical treatments and mental health at Alexandra were raised, though G. Zach Terwilliger, the USA attorney, said they have "bent over backwards to accommodate her needs".
