Manning, who was born Bradley Manning, stole and leaked a massive cache of military reports and State Department intelligence to WikiLeaks, which has been identified by US intelligence agencies as a front for Russian government operations.
Prior to her release, Manning's lawyers received a second subpoena calling for her to testify again in the Eastern District of Virginia.
"I've already been to prison, so attempting to coerce me with a grand jury subpoena is just not going to work ..."
In an additional unprecedented move to put increasing pressure on Manning, the district judge coercively ruled that after 30 days the whistleblower will be fined $500 for every day behind bars.
Before Thursday's hearing she made it clear that she would still not testify.
"The goal here is really to relitigate the court martial", Manning said before the hearing.
United States prosecutors are seeking the extradition of Assange from the UK, where he is serving a 50-week jail term for skipping bail, to face charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. "It is telling that the United States has always been more concerned with the disclosure of those documents than with the damning substance of the disclosures".
Manning's attorney, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, addressed the media after Manning was returned to jail, expressing her disappointment and reiterating that her client would not betray her convictions by testifying. Her sentence was commuted by former President Barack Obama in one of his final acts in office.
Manning was released from a military prison in Kansas in 2017, serving about seven years of what was once a 35-year prison term. She said the isolation caused her "extraordinary pain" and that she was sometimes in a "dissociative stupor".
U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger declined to say why the government continued to seek Manning's testimony.
She added that the prosecutors were asking her to violate her principles and she would not do that. "As someone who received the incredible gift of a commutation, who is literally given 28 years of her life back, she now refuses to simply answer questions as part of our constitutional criminal justice process".
