People on both sides of the aisle have been weighing in on President Obama’s 11th-hour commutation of former Army private Chelsea Manning’s 35-year prison sentence, and now America’s most-watched TV judge is giving her opinion.

Obama cut Manning’s sentence by 28 years after she was convicted of theft and espionage for delivering hundreds of classified materials to WikiLeaks that were subsequently published.

When TMZ asked Judge Judy if she thought the president’s decision to cut Manning’s sentence by 28 years sends the wrong message to leakers of information, she says “I didn’t think it was a wise judgment.” Watch the full video of her questioning above.
