Trump Pardons Two Army Veterans And Restored The Rank Of A Navy SEAL

The holiday season came early for a pair of U.S. Army veterans and a Navy SEAL as President Trump took executive action to clear their names.

Trump granted the two Army soldiers full pardons as they have been accused of “war crimes.” He also reversed the demotion of the Navy SEAL after he was penalized for killing a Taliban soldier, per BizPac Review.

BizPac Review reports:

Millions of Americans considered Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, Army Major Mathew Golsteyn (a Green Beret), and Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward Gallagher heroes who should not have been prosecuted for actions committed during the unending wars in the Middle East.

In a press release shared from the office of the press secretary, Trump said: “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.”

He added, per the White House:

In early July 2012, only days after Lieutenant Lorance had taken command of his platoon in one of the most dangerous battle zones in Afghanistan, a motorcycle with three men approached him and his men with unusual speed. Under difficult circumstances and prioritizing the lives of American troops, Lorance ordered his men to engage, and two of the three men were killed. Following these events, Lorance was convicted of several charges. He has served more than six years of a 19-year sentence he received. Many Americans have sought executive clemency for Lorance, including 124,000 people who have signed a petition to the White House, as well as several members of Congress, including Senators Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy, and Representatives Steve Scalise, Garret Graves, Duncan Hunter, Paul Gosar, Adam Kinzinger, Scott Perry, Brian Babin, Neal Dunn, Michael Waltz, Louie Gohmert, Daniel Webster, Steve King, Ralph Norman, Mark Meadows, Clay Higgins, Ralph Abraham, Mike Johnson, and Jody Hice.

Major Mathew Golsteyn, an officer of the United States Army and graduate of West Point, is currently set to stand trial for an allegedly unlawful killing in connection with one of the largest battles of the Afghanistan War. As our forces cleared the Taliban from the city of Marjah, an Improvised Explosive Device detonated, killing two Marines. The terrorist bombmaker, as identified by an Afghan informant, who had killed our troops, was detained and questioned. Golsteyn was compelled to release him, however, due in part to deficiencies within the fledgling Afghan detention system. Golsteyn has said he later shot the terrorist because he was certain that the terrorist’s bombmaking activities would continue to threaten American troops and their Afghan partners, including Afghan civilians who had helped identify him. After nearly a decade-long inquiry and multiple investigations, a swift resolution to the case of Major Golsteyn is in the interests of justice. Clemency for Major Golsteyn has
broad support, including from Representatives Louie Gohmert, Duncan Hunter, Mike Johnson, Ralph Abraham, and Clay Higgins, American author and Marine combat veteran Bing West, and Army combat veteran Pete Hegseth.

Before the prosecution of Special Warfare Operator First Class Edward Gallagher, he had been selected for promotion to Senior Chief, awarded a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor, and assigned to an important position in the Navy as an instructor. Though ultimately acquitted on all of the most serious charges, he was stripped of these honors as he awaited his trial and its outcome. Given his service to our Nation, a promotion back to the rank and pay grade of Chief Petty Officer is justified.

Gallagher thanked Trump in a social media post where he also credited “the American people for their unwavering support.”

Statement from SOC Eddie Gallagher 🇺🇸 • • “There are no words to adequately express how grateful my family and I are to our President – Donald J. Trump for his intervention and decision. @realdonaldtrump @vp • • We would also like to thank the American people for their unwavering support during this very difficult time for my family and I – we can never thank you enough. • • In addition I would like to thank my wife Andrea and children Treven, Ava, and Ryan. My brother Sean, my family and friends who stood by me as well as ~ Bernie Kerik, Tim Parlatore and Marc Mukasey and my entire legal team for their hard work and diligence on my behalf during our fight for justice. • • I truly believe that we are blessed as a Nation to have a Commander-in-Chief that stands up for our warfighters, and cares about how they and their families are treated. • • Our military is the best in the world, and with steadfast and supportive leadership; like we have in this President, our fighting force will only get stronger. • • God bless the United States of America, our President, and the men and women in our armed forces and their families.” • • Edward ‘Eddie’ Gallagher Chief U.S. Naval Special Warfare 🐸🔱🇺🇸

    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

  15. I think everything published made a ton of sense. However,
    what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your
    information is not good, but suppose you added something to maybe get a person’s attention?
    I mean Trump Pardons Two Army Veterans And Restored The
    Rank Of A Navy SEAL – SARAH PALIN is a little boring.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
