(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning said she will not cooperate with a grand jury when she's scheduled to appear in court on Thursday (May 16).
Manning, who posted the statement on YouTube, was just released from prison on May 9, after having been detained for refusing to testify before a previous grand jury.
Manning was released after the term expired for the previous grand jury in Virginia that was seeking her testimony in connection with what is believed to be the government's long-running investigation into WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.
If Manning is found in contempt again, she could face more jail time.
It is unclear exactly why federal prosecutors want Manning to testify, although her representatives say the questions she was asked concern the release of information she disclosed to the public in 2010 through WikiLeaks.
Manning was convicted by court-martial in 2013 of espionage and other offenses for furnishing more than 700,000 documents, videos, diplomatic cables and battlefield accounts to WikiLeaks while she was an intelligence analyst in Iraq.
