Harvard Withdraws Fellowship Invitation To Chelsea Manning

Chelsea Manning was interviewed on the ABC News program Nightline shortly after her release from prison. Manning, a 29-year-old transgender woman, formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted of leaking classified information.

The Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School announced Wednesday that Manning would be one of its visiting fellows, but less than two days later, the school’s dean withdrew the invitation.
