As one of the final acts of his final term as Commander-in-Chief, President Obama announced today that he would be commuting Chelsea Manning's sentence, bringing forward her release following a 35-year sentence from 2045 to May 17th this year, as well as organising for the responsibility of her incarceration to no longer sit under the purview of the Department of Defence. Whilst incarcerated by the department, Chelsea has been prevented from seeing any surgeons to discuss sexual reassignment, and is still held to male military standards.
