Have a good day. Johnson said there had been two attempts to delete material from the MacBook.

Manning's lawyers argued that the government had overstated the harm the release of the documents had caused, and had overcharged Manning in order to obtain evidence against Assange. They suggested that other people had had access to Manning's workplace computer, and under cross-examination Shaver acknowledged that some of the 10, cables on Manning's personal computer did not match cables published by WikiLeaks.
Coombs asked for the dismissal of any charge related to the use of unauthorized software, arguing that Manning's unit had been "lawless The defense also raised the issue of whether Manning's gender identity disorder had affected Manning's judgment. Manning had e-mailed master sergeant, Paul Adkins, in April to say she was suffering from gender confusion and, despite then living as a man, attaching a photograph of herself dressed as a woman.
After Manning's arrest, the army found information about hormone replacement therapy in her room, and Manning's commander, Captain Steven Lim, learned that she had been calling herself Breanna. Defense lawyers argued that the superiors had failed to provide adequate counseling, and had not taken disciplinary action or revoke Manning's security clearance.
They also suggested that the " don't ask, don't tell " policy—which was repealed in September —had made it difficult for Manning to serve in the army as a gay man. After the hearing, in January , Coombs filed a request to depose six witnesses, whose names were redacted in the application, and who are believed to have been involved in classifying the leaked videos.
Coombs argues that the videos were not classified at the time they were obtained by WikiLeaks.
An Article 39  hearing was convened on April 24, , during which the judge, Colonel Denise Lind, denied a defense motion to dismiss the charge of aiding the enemy, and ruled that the government must be able to show that Manning knew the enemy would be able to access information on the WikiLeaks site. Lind said she would decide after reading the documents whether to make them available to Manning's lawyers. She also ordered forensic imaging of five computers removed from Manning's work station that had not yet been wiped clean.
The next Article 39 hearing was set for June 6—8 and trial was set for September The Center for Constitutional Rights filed a petition in May asking the Army Court of Criminal Appeals to order press and public access to motion papers, orders, and transcripts.

Manning read a statement recounting how she joined the military, became an intelligence analyst in Iraq, decided that certain files should become known to the American public to prompt a wider debate about foreign policy, downloaded them from a secure computer network and then ultimately uploaded them to WikiLeaks.

Manning was reportedly disturbed by her comrades' lack of sympathy upon later learning that an Iraqi civilian had been killed in the incident.
