Judge Judy had to bite her tongue when she ran into TMZ the other night as she was asked to comment on Obama’s pardon for Manning.
In this video clip released by TMZ, Judge Judy delivers an eight-word verdict on Obama and his decision to lighten the prison sentence of Chelsea Manning. Yes, the very same Manning that spilled government secrets.
Manning is the army intelligence analyst who was “convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.”
President Obama was asked about the grant of leniency during his last White House news conference, and he said, “I feel very comfortable that justice has been served,” as USA Today reports in their article.
The article also wrote that “Obama said the commutation of Manning balanced national security interests with Manning’s remorse and [his] long sentence.”
Judge Judy first refused to speak about the grant of leniency Obama made during his last days in office.
But, the TMZ reporter didn’t accept her refusal as Judge Judy walked from a NY restaurant to a car that was waiting for her.
“I didn’t think it was a wise judgment,” Sheindlin said at the time, and refused to speak any further about that question.
“I gave you my one answer,” she said. “Goodnight.”
If you remember, the actions of then-Army private Manning could have killed someone, including America’s overseas allies involved in the War of terror.
“In July 2013, retired Army Brig. Gen. Robert A. Carr, a former counterintelligence official, revealed that a Pentagon task force found nearly 900 names of local Afghan nationals contained in Manning’s leaked records,” Breitbart reported.
“Obama administration defense officials, American lawmakers, and former Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the former soldier endangered the lives of U.S. military informants and American troops by leaking classified U.S. military information to WikiLeaks.”
Obama’s decision is freeing Chelsea Manning in May.
