Chelsea Manning -- the whistleblower currently serving a 35-year sentence for passing classified military documents to Wikileaks -- is facing solitary confinement, partly because of Caitlyn Jenner.
A lawyer for Manning told Buzzfeed News Manning's alleged violations include having an expired tube of toothpaste, disorderly conduct and possessing "prohibited property" ... specifically a number of LGBTQ reading materials, including Jenner's Vanity Fair issue.
Manning -- who came out as a transgender woman in 2013 -- is facing an indefinite trip to solitary. A hearing is scheduled for next week.
