In a recent judgement, judge has decided that the two tweets from WikiLeaks can be used in the ruling against military whistleblower Bradley Manning trial.
During the Manning court martial on Friday, Judge Col. Denise Lind made a decision that two tweets can be used as circumstantial evidence against Manning, which can prove some serious charges against him, including aiding the enemy, stealing government property, and violating the Espionage Act, as reported by the Huffington Post.
These tweets were made in 2010 and, according to the prosecution, create a concrete evidence that Manning was following WikiLeaks directions, and conspiring with Julian Assange when he started perusing the military network before following the WikiLeaks’ most famous releases.
These are the two tweets that will be included in trial.
