David House, the friend of Bradley Manning’s who has been repeatedly harassed by the government because of his support for Manning, has been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury in Alexandria on Wednesday, June 15 (PDF: Letter, Directions, subpoena).

According to people familiar with the Grand Jury’s proceedings, the Department of Justice prosecutor in charge of the case is Tracy McCormick of the Eastern District of Virginia, whose background is in prosecuting child molester cases. This likely due to the fact that such cases usually involve computer forensics, and gives an indication that the government’s case against Manning will likely come down to what they can find on Manning’s hard drive.
