This is absolutely treasonous and disgusting. The lack of respect being given to the Commander in Chief of the United States Military is absolutely sickening America.
US official: Navy Plans to remove Gallagher’s Trident, eject from SEALs, after Trump pardon. I am told Navy feels message of good order & discipline needed, even if it puts military leaders on collision course with President.
The following is from the New York Times:
The Navy SEAL at the center of a high-profile war crimes case has been ordered to appear before Navy leaders Wednesday morning, and is expected to be notified that the Navy intends to oust him from the elite commando force, two Navy officials said on Tuesday.
The move could put the SEAL commander, Rear Adm. Collin Green, in direct conflict with President Trump, who last week cleared the sailor, Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, of any judicial punishment in the war crimes case. Military leaders opposed that action as well as Mr. Trump’s pardons of two soldiers involved in other murder cases.
Navy officials had planned to begin the process of taking away Chief Gallagher’s Trident pin, the symbol of his membership in the SEALs, earlier this month. But as he waited outside his commander’s office, Navy leaders sought clearance from the White House that never came, and no action was taken.
Admiral Green now has the authorization he needs from the Navy to act against Chief Gallagher, and the formal letter notifying the chief of the action has been drafted by the admiral, the two officials said.
Gallagher was given Clemency and Full Pardon from President Trump just last week, along with two other American heroes. You can read that full story HERE.
What are your thoughts on this blatant disregard for a direct order from the President America?
