In California, the war crimes trial for Navy SEALs Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher opened Monday. Gallagher is accused of shooting unarmed civilians in Iraq and of killing a wounded captive ISIS teenage fighter by stabbing him with a knife, then staging a re-enlistment ceremony over the dead teenager’s body. California Congressmember Duncan Hunter has come to Gallagher’s defense, and President Trump has signaled he’s considering a pardon for Gallagher. Opening statements in the trial are taking place today.
