The Pvt. Manning Support Network released documents on Wednesday that attorney David Coombs filed a day earlier with the U.S. Justice Department and the Department of the Army.
Chelsea Manning, previously known as Bradley Manning, has declared her desire to live as a woman while serving a 35-year prison sentence.
In her petition for pardon and commutation of sentence, Ms. Manning writes- “The decisions I made in 2010 were made out of a concern for my country and the world that we live in.”
Ms. Manning says she regrets if her actions caused harm.
The leaked material was given to the anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks.
