A U.S. District judge has ordered former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to be jailed for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating Wikileaks.

Judge Claude Hilton ordered Manning to report to jail on Friday after a brief hearing in which Manning confirmed she has no intention of testifying, telling the judge ā€œI will accept whatever you bring upon me.ā€

The judge said Manning will remain jailed until the grand jury concludes its work.

Manning received a 35-year prison sentence in 2013 for leaking secret State Department communications and military documents to WikiLeaks. Former President Obama commuted the sentence in 2017.
