Manning has argued that Assange's indictment is proof that her testimony is no longer needed and is merely intended to harass her.
"I've read the indictment and I've read the affidavit that is attached to the indictment, and the case doesn't make sense. It seems kind of bananas in comparison to the evidence that we got out and the interviews that we've had. So it's just a very bananas case. I don't know what the government is doing with that," Manning said outside court.
