Chelsea Manning Faces Contempt Charges

Disgraced soldier Chelsea Manning is facing a contempt hearing.

The hearing comes after Manning refused to testify before a grand jury.

Manning said she invoked her Fourth, Fifth and Sixth amendment rights Wednesday while appearing before a grand jury.

The grand jury asked questions about her public disclosure of diplomatic cables and military logs in 2010.

The disclosure is crime for which she served more than six years in prison.

Manning said she will return to federal court for a closed contempt hearing Friday.

Manning said that she was given immunity for her testimony before the grand jury but still did not offer details to federal prosecutors.
