Obama to Free Chelsea Manning

The New York Times is reporting that Barack Obama will commute the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning. She is expected to be released in May.

No word yet on anything along the same lines for Edward Snowden.

Great! - and ... unexpected - I would think.

And, what's really fun, is that Trump can't reverse it!

Maybe that's why Obama did it. Hmm?

Didn't think he had it in him. Very impressed and grateful.

Perhaps the Democratic party has begun to turn the page on the disastrous Clinton era.

(Ironically, Donald Trump has made it possible...)
