Chelsea Manning seeks presidential pardon

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Chelsea Manning is seeking a presidential pardon for sending reams of classified information to WikiLeaks, a leak she says was done ‘‘out of a love for my country and sense of duty to others,’’ according to documents released Wednesday.

Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, sent the Petition for Pardon/Commutation of Sentence on Tuesday to President Obama through the Justice Department, and to Army Secretary John M. McHugh.
