NYT: Navy SEALs Expected to Oust Gallagher, Despite Trump Restoring His Rank

HeadlineNov 20, 2019

The New York Times reports the Navy SEALs are expected to oust accused war criminal Eddie Gallagher from the elite commando force — only days after President Trump cleared Gallagher of any judicial punishment and restored his rank. Gallagher has been accused of shooting two Iraqi civilians and fatally stabbing a captive teenager in the neck. A California military jury acquitted him of premeditated and attempted murder charges in July but convicted him of a lesser offense for posing for photos with the teenage captive’s dead body. Trump also pardoned two other U.S. soldiers who have also been accused of committing war crimes, despite being advised against the pardons by his own defense secretary, Mark Esper.
