'She's a Traitor' to the US: Bongino Sounds Off on Chelsea Manning's Senate Run

Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning, had her sentence commuted by President Obama past year, and has filed to run in the Democratic primary.

The former USA soldier, who was convicted of leaking almost 750,000 sensitive documents to WikiLeaks, has reportedly filed documents to run for the senate seat from Maryland as a Democratic Party candidate. On Sunday, the former intelligence analyst tweeted: "Yup, we're running for Senate #WeGotThis".

Now 30, Manning was sentenced in 2013 to 35 years in jail, for her part in the 2010 leak of more than 700,000 documents and videos to news outlets including the Guardian and the New York Times.

According to federal election filings, Manning will look to challenge Democrat Benjamin L Cardin, who is now serving his second term as senator. We need to fix this. We can do better. We need to fix this. You're damn right we got this. We don't need them anymore.
