WikiLeaks Gives $15,100 to Bradley Manning Defense Team

WikiLeaks, struggling to pay its own bills and keep its operation running, has given more than $15,000 to the Bradley Manning Support Network, according to an announcement posted to the group's website this morning.

The contribution by WikiLeaks brings the total funds raised and transferred to Bradley's civilian legal defense team, led by attorney David Coombs, to over $100,000. Supporters say that a "vigorous defense" for Manning is estimated to cost $115,000.

WikiLeaks has been faced with several challenges in raising money after being cut off by Visa, MasterCard and PayPal recently.

"We have seen an enormous outpouring of support internationally, in donations as well as volunteers," stated Jeff Paterson, steering committee member for the Bradley Manning Support Network.
