Trump says Navy won't remove Gallagher's SEAL's designation - 47abc

"The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher's Trident Pin", Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning. "This case was handled very badly from the beginning".

Along with restoring Gallagher to his rank, the president's clemency pardoned Army Maj.

Gallagher, despite a high-profile presidential intervention on his behalf, still faces possible expulsion from the Navy's elite special operations force.

While Gallagher was indicted for stabbing a wounded enemy prisoner and shooting civilians during his combat tour in Iraq in 2017, he was cleared on six of seven charges when his court-martial concluded in July - only found guilty of posing for a photo with a corpse.

Trump last week restored his rank and pay, and pardoned two Army officers who were separately accused of war crimes in Afghanistan.

Trump commented after Gallagher's lawyer appeared on Fox and Friends Thursday morning to discuss the military admiral readying to launch a review to strip Gallagher of his trident pin. United States defense officers told CNN that Trump took that action in opposition to the recommendation of senior Pentagon leaders, asserting the switch along with the President's possibility to pardon two Navy officers who had been convicted or charged with cancel would possibly perchance perchance well well undermine the defense force justice machine.

Mourinho's first match is away at West Ham on Saturday and he added: "I had a feeling I was going to get a club midseason". Don't ask me what are the mistakes. "The principle of the analysis was not to blame anyone else". "I am humble.

"This is an action that they could have taken at any time from July right after the verdict, until today", said the lawyer, Tim Parlatore, calling the Navy's attempt "just an effort to try and publicly humiliate Chief Gallagher and stick it right in the president's eye".

Parlatore said that he hopes that Green is held accountable for his actions and had previously called on Trump to dismiss Green due to "insubordination".

His attorney, Jeremiah Sullivan said Trump recognizes "the honorable sacrifices that my client has made in his combat deployments", and that Green is challenging the "integrity of the president".

"Whatever you think about this President, that's an extremely risky precedent to set", he said, latter calling on Trump to dismiss Green due to "insubordination". His spokesman, Cmdr. Nate Christensen, told CNN that Gilday "supports his commanders in executing their roles, to include Rear Adm. Green".

Three other SEALs who served with Gallagher were also notified of review boards.

Gallagher had faced a court-martial for premeditated kill and attempted kill but used to be acquitted.
