President Obama just commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence and she will be freed in May ... the White House announced Tuesday.
Chelsea Manning -- a former Army intelligence officer who leaked classified information to WikiLeaks -- was convicted back in 2013, and sentenced to 35 years in prison. Obama's commutation means she'll be out May 17, after just 7 years served.
