McKeon said that Manning’s sentence created a false distinction between his punishment and the life sentences given to John Walker and Robert Hanssen, who were both convicted on espionage charges for spying for Russia and the Soviet Union. 

"Bradley Manning betrayed his country, his obligations as a soldier, and the trust of all Americans,” McKeon said. “He put the lives of our troops and our allies in danger.”
