White House would consider Manning pardon request By Justin Sink - 08/21/13 03:16 PM ET

The White House said Wednesday that it would consider a clemency petition for Bradley Manning "like any other application" after the Army private was sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking a cache of documents to WikiLeaks.

"There's a process for pardon applications or clemency applications, I believe they're called," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. "And I'm not going to get ahead of that process. If there is an application that's filed by Mr. Manning or his attorneys, that application will be considered in that process like any other application."

Manning's attorney said shortly after his sentencing that he would ask the White House for a pardon. He added that even if the president did not do so, Obama should commute Manning's sentence to time already served.

"What's at stake here is how do we as a public want to be informed about what our government does," attorney David Coombs said, according to The Wrap.

It's like protection money but with a sore butt.

Not an entirely implausible hypothesis.
