Chelsea Manning in Politics – level 1

25-01-2018 07:00

Chelsea Manning works for the US army. She is an intelligence analyst. She shows over 700,000 documents to the public. She is not supposed to do this. She can go to jail for 35 years. She goes to jail for 7 years.

Now she wants to work in the US senate. She wants to be a politician. She hopes that her past does not stop her.

Difficult words: intelligence analyst (a person who tries to find out what can happen in the future), senate (a part of the government where leaders make decisions for their states), politician (a leader in the government).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
