As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me,” Manning said in a statement read during an exclusive TODAY show interview with lawyer David Coombs. “I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way I have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible.”
While Fort Leavenworth, the prison where Manning will serve her sentence, does not offer hormone therapy, Coombs told host Savannah Guthrie he would fight to ensure his client received the medical treatment she needed. He also said he and Manning had not discussed sex reassignment surgery, and that getting her access to the needed hormones is his priority at this time.
Asked why Chelsea Manning had not made a statement about her gender before the trial was over, Coombs said, “She didn’t want this to be something that overshadowed the case.”

Michelle Obama is a temptress and a deceiver. This weekend, Michelle Obama secretly boarded 40 of her friends upon a private jet and flew to Spain.
Unbeknownst to the America people, Michelle Obama made arrangements with the Spanish government to have closed off one of the most popular beaches in Spain. Shocked beach-goers were shuttled off to the side as Michelle Obama and her friends showed up, under heavy protection of American and Spanish security details.
As her friends frolicked, journalists managed to catch pictures of Michelle Obama eyeing up male beach-goers and living a lavish lifestyle of a pampered queen. The cost to the American taxpayer for each day of her vaction: $75,000.
