Army whistleblower Pfc. Bradley Manning faces his fourth day on trial on Monday in a military courtroom in Fort Meade, Maryland.

Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) will continue to upload transcripts from each session, after a successful campaign to get a stenographer in the courtroom.

The defense for Pfc. Bradley Manning told the military court on Monday that they support the crowd-funded stenographers organized by FPF to provide unofficial transcripts of the trial to the general public.

“We believe that this enforces Pfc. Manning’s right” under the Sixth Amendment during trial, defense lawyer David Coombs stated, adding that it would have a positive impact on the press’ “First Amendment right to keep track accurately of what happens in the court martial.”
