She's a traitor to our country, so prison is where Chelsea belongs.
Women's prisons are not co-ed. He is a man pretending to women, nothing more nothing less. To pretend he is now woman flies in the face of logic.

Chelsea Manning will go back to jail after refusing to testify to grand jury probing Wikileaks

Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning is headed back to jail for refusing to testify before a grand jury in the WikiLeaks probe.

Manning served two months at William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Va. for a contempt charge regarding the same issue, but was released on Friday after the grand jury term expired.

This time, a judge ordered Manning to the Alexandria Detention Center, where she can face up to 18 months in prison, the length of the grand jury term, unless she agrees to cooperate with the investigation sooner.

Manning said she’d rather stay in jail "forever" than testify to the grand jury probing Wikileaks, describing the subpoena as “an attempt to place me back in confinement.”

“There’s nothing new,” Manning said Thursday during a press conference before her court hearing in Alexandria. “They’re not asking anything new, there’s no new information.”

She told the judge she’d "rather starve to death" than comply with the subpoena.

“Facing jail again, potentially today doesn’t change my stance,” Manning said before entering her hearing. “The prosecutors are deliberately placing me in an impossible situation.”

Manning was found guilty of espionage and theft in 2013 and was sentenced to 35 years in prison after she leaked classified documents to Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. Her sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama in 2017 and she was released from prison after seven years of imprisonment.
I hope he means what he says about staying in jail forever than testifying testifying before a grand jury.

But your very first sentence in your response to me brought the subject up...

Bringing up pardons in a thread where pardons weren't the subject was confusing...

The other question i have here is what about Manning's 5th amendment rights.
How is it that Manning can be sent to jail for refusing to answer questions?
What am i missing here?

EDIT:
i think i found the answer to my question:

The questions aren't about Manning...They are about WikiLeaks...He can't incriminate himself if the questions aren't about him (Guessing)...
