A judge released Manning from prison the day after her third suicide attempt because the grand jury inquiry has been disbanded. The massive fine shows this was about teaching her a lesson, not just about coercing her testimony against Assange.
Update March 16,2020: Supporters of Chelsea Manning managed to raise enough money with a GoFundMe campaign over the weekend, shortly after this interview was conducted. As a result, she no longer needs to pay this fine.
