Mike Pence was always been mild-tempered, soft-spoken and respectful to even those people he disagrees with. However, he didn’t mince words to destroy Obama’s idiotic decisions when he turned to the camera on FOX News last night.
Vice President-elect had an interview with Brett Baire when he was asked about Obama’s commuting of Chelsea Manning’s prison sentence for treason, reports Liberty Writers News. Pence immediately got serious, looked to the camera, and said:
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr.” He said Barack Obama’s decision to commute former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning’s prison sentence “was a mistake.”

To show that he is a man of integrity, Pence went on to explain his position and his intense reaction and said:
“Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange, compromised individuals in Afghanistan who were cooperating with our forces by leaking 750,000 documents to Wikileaks.”
Chelsea, who went by the name Bradley before changing genders after the crime, was sentenced to 35 years in prison for her crimes. She’ll get out in May, thanks to Obama.
Commenting on the decision Wednesday, Obama said, “I looked at the particulars of this case the same way I had the other commutations and pardons that I’ve done, and I felt that in light of all the circumstances, that commuting her sentence was entirely appropriate.”
Obama said his decision had nothing to do with pleas from Assange, who offered extradition in exchange for Manning’s release.
Despite the alleged help they got for winning the election, Pence didn’t mince words about Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as well and said the incoming Trump administration will be “committed to protecting our nation’s secrets” and will “bring to bear the law”.
