Statement Re: Chelsea Manning's Potential Transfer to Federal Prison

I learned for the first time this morning that the Pentagon is considering transferring Chelsea to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  This news comes via a leak of information to the AP and is the only information we have heard regarding Chelsea's medical treatment in 10 months.  Attached is a statement responding to this potential development.  Additionally, the Palm Center Report referenced in the statement can be found here.


  1. Thank you Mr. Coombs, for this extremely clear and well-balanced statement. My thoughts are with Chelsea.

  2. They transfer her to BOP the abuse will only be 10 times worse...
