David House, who helped found the Bradley Manning Support Network, reportedly invoked his 5th Amendment right not to testify before a civilian grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia yesterday. The grand jury is investigating Wiki____’s publication of thousands of sensitive and classified documents on its website. Army PFC Manning has been held in various military pretrial confinement facilities for over a year in relation to the document leaks, although he has yet to have an Article 32 investigation (often referred to as being akin to a grand jury, but it isn’t really a very close match) conducted.
Here’s an excerpt:
House said he was not asked any questions about Wiki___ founder Julian Assange.
