President Trump is a man of action and a man who supports our armed forces, and today was a fine example of exactly that.
Earlier this afternoon, President Trump restored Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher to the rank of chief petty officer, and granted clemency to two Army officers accused/convicted of war crimes. Here's the kicker; Gallagher's "crime" was taking a photo alongside a dead ISIS fighter. Seriously, what kind of bullshit is that?
Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance will be released from Fort Leavenworth in Kansas later tonight, and former Green Beret Major Matt Golsteyn will have his murder charges against him dropped.
The White House released the following statement:
"Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and an order directing the promotion of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward R. Gallagher to the grade of E-7, the rank he held before he was tried and found not guilty of nearly all of the charges against him."
Lorance was six years deep into a 19-year sentence at Fort Leavenworth for ordering his men to open fire & kill three Taliban fighters. Again, total horseshit! we are there to eradicate ISIS, not jail our soldiers for killing them!
What do you think of President Trump's devotion to the armed forces?
