Chelsea Manning — convicted traitor — is featured in Vogue magazine’s September issue, photographed by Annie Leibovitz no less:

Why is the magazine endorsing treason just to make a political point?

You know, that whole Russian collusion thing:

Manning told Vogue that her next step is to finish her memoir and then possibly run for office:

She is also at work on a memoir. “I’m trying to tell the story as if it was happening now and you’re with me,” she explains. Hawkins, the documentarian, says he plans to stop shooting soon, as Manning’s personal narrative finds its own way in the world: “She’s too young for this film to attempt to be the definitive story of her life.”

Manning does not know what her career will be. While living as Bradley Manning, she expressed an interest in running for political office. I ask whether that’s still on her mind. “I’m certainly not going to say no, and I’m certainly not going to say yes,” she says. “My goal is to use these next six months to figure out where I want to go.

Yeah, that’s not going to happen.

Correction: An earlier version of this posted reported that Manning would be on the cover of the magazine.
