Trump looking into pardoning military members accused or convicted of war crimes: report

Perhaps many  will remember my asking you to write to the Secretary of the Army and the Joint Chiefs of Staff asking them to review Clagget’s case and recommend clemency.

Some will agree or disagree with my points.

I spent 4 years trying to help Corey, working with his attorney and he was royally screwed when he took the advice of his jag officer, a female that had never tried a murder case.

Had he declared his action to be premeditated murder, his punishment would have been shorter, not under Obama, but with a commander-in-chief with an ounce of sense.

This is not the first time a member in combat has been wrongly found guilty for following direct orders and it won’t be the last.

The military judicial system is not infallible.

It is however, filled with some obstreperous individuals who believe once a sentence has been given it can’t be overturned.

From a horrible story came United American Patriots which advises all military personnel to hire a top-notch civilian attorney. (Source)

Two U.S. officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the newspaper that the president has already begun making requests for the necessary paperwork to pardon the servicemen.

One of the men Trump is reportedly seeking to pardon is Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher, who was charged last year for a number of war crimes, including stabbing and murdering a wounded person and shooting begun Iraqi civilians.

A few months after he was charged, Trump was met with criticism after he said in March that Gallagher would soon be moved to “less restrictive confinement” in “honor of his past service” to the nation.

Another one of the cases Trump is allegedly looking at involves a group of Marine who were charged with urinating on a dead Taliban member.

The officials said they believe the president is also allegedly considering a pardon for Nicholas Slatten, a former Blackwater security guard who was convicted last year for his role in a 2007 shooting of unarmed Iraqi civilians.

The officials told The Times that the White House issued the paperwork requests to begin the pardoning process on Friday.

They added that Trump is planning to pardon the men on Memorial Day.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    I heard about Michael Behenna being pardoned last week. I am so glad we now have a president who truly cares about the members of our military serving this nation overseas in the Middle East.
    Most of the American people have no idea what these guys have been through fighting an enemy that is completely merciless and does not care one bit about the “rules of engagement” in warfare.
    Oh, and by the way, the ACLU can go suck rotten eggs!

    In conflicts/wars since the Korean conflict (1950-1953) the hands of our military combatants have been tied by greedy, political agendas and by looney political correctness. Both of which have given our excellent military members Rules of Engagement designed for our troops to lose in the end. While atrocities do happen, too many of our warriors are punished without logical reason just to appease the progressives who think we should “be guided by a higher standard than our enemies because we are better than that.” Well, in sports that may be fine but in war it isn’t how you play the game that counts. Winning is everything!
