    Attorneys for imprisoned transgender soldier Chelsea Manning are livid following failed attempts to contact their client after she was briefly hospitalized on Tuesday.

    Manning, who was convicted in 2013 on espionage charges and other offenses for sending more than 700,000 classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, was taken to the hospital in the early hours of Tuesday, July 5, Army spokesman Wayne Hall confirmed to NBC News.

    She has since returned back to the United State Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where she is currently serving a 35-year sentence.

    Hall said that military officials were continuing to monitor Manning's condition, but gave no details as to what that condition might be.
