Below is searchable database of the official record of trial (transcripts) and exhibits for U.S. v. Pfc. Manning released on March 20 and 24, 2014.
United States v. Pfc. Manning was conducted in de facto secrecy. The public was not granted contemporaneous access to court filings or rulings during her trial. In addition to reporting on her trial, I transcribed the proceedings, reconstructed the censored appellate list, and un-redact any publicly available documentation, in order to foster public comprehension of her unprecedented trial.
As a result of a lawsuit against the military judge and the Military District of Washington brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights, as well as my own FOIA requests, the official court record for US v. Pfc. Manning was released seven months after her trial.
There are 2,187 documents contained in this database.
This searchable collection contains all the officially public appellate, defense, and prosecution exhibits and the official trial transcript in 111 volumes.
Defense Exhibit (DE) 'K 1' was corrupted, when released in March 2014.
