US Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning is recovering in a Virginia hospital after a suicide attempt, according to her lawyers. Manning was found in contempt of court in recent months for refusing to testify against WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, in the government’s case to extradite him from London. Penalty fees have been mounting over her months of imprisonment and yet she is still expected to appear in court tomorrow. Redacted Tonight host Lee Camp weighs in.
