Manning 'not going to' comply with grand jury

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former U.S. Army soldier Chelsea Manning, facing a fresh grand jury subpoena to testify about her contacts with WikiLeaks, told reporters she would not comply the subpoena on Thursday.

Manning's lawyers maintain that, since the grand jury is only an investigative tool and cannot be used by prosecutors to prepare for trials, the subpoena for Manning "represents an improper and impermissible use of the grand jury process." Earlier in May, Manning was freed after spending 62 days in a Virginia jail after being found in contempt for refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks.

Manning was released from jail after that grand jury's term expired.

Before her release, she was served with another subpoena requiring her to testify before a new grand jury, which is continuing to investigate WikiLeaks.
