FORT MEADE, Md.
A military judge is weighing the admissibility of three pieces of evidence suggesting that an Army private took his cues from WikiLeaks in disclosing classified information.

Col. Denise Lind says she’s preparing to rule as the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning resumes Friday at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

The evidence includes a “most wanted” list that WikiLeaks apparently posted on its website in November 2009. Prosecutors also want to have admitted two tweets WikiLeaks apparently posted in 2010 referring to classified material that Manning allegedly either sent to the anti-secrecy organization or stole from a Defense Department database.

Manning says he decided what to leak, and that he did it to expose wrongdoing. Showing a strong relationship with WikiLeaks could help prosecutors prove a charge that Manning aided the enemy.
