Chelsea Manning is headed back to the slammer

It’s back to jail for Chelsea Manning.

The Army intelligence officer-turned-leaker will return to the slammer after refusing to testify before a grand jury that is investigating WikiLeaks.

She served two months in the Alexandria Detention Center in Virginia for declining to testify but was cut loose last week after that grand jury term expired.

But Judge Anthony Trenga ordered her back inside until she testifies — or until the new grand jury term expires in 18 months.

Manning, 31, previously spent seven years in military prison for leaking thousands of sensitive and classified documents to WikiLeaks. President Obama commuted the remainder of her 35-year sentence just days before handing the White House over to President Trump.

A defiant Manning on Thursday said she’d “rather starve to death” than testify and pledged to stay in jail “forever” if she had to.
