Chelsea Manning appears to be running for US Senate

Informant and transgender extremist Chelsea Manning has documented to keep running for a U.S. Senate situate in Maryland, The Washington Post reports.

The transgender former Army officer who was convicted of leaking classified documents filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

Democratic Senator Ben Cardin was elected in 2006 to that seat and is expected to run for re-election this year.

A representative for Manning did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Manning was convicted in 2013 by a military tribunal under the Espionage and Computer Fraud and Abuse Acts for releasing over 700,000 documents to WikiLeaks.

The 30-year-old Manning listed a North Bethesda address in her FEC filing.

President Obama commuted her sentence, and Manning was released from military prison last year after serving seven years.

Manning would be taking on U.S. Sen. In an exclusive 2017 interview with ABC's Juju Chang for a special edition of Nightline, Manning said, "My intention was to draw attention to this ... and do the right thing".
