How Trump intervened in Navy SEAL case


I put together a timeline of events surrounding President Trump’s support of U.S. Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. It’s an extraordinary case of a president influencing trials of officers charged with violating military code.

Though the timeline focused on Gallagher, Trump also pardoned two Army officers, one charged with ordering his men to open fire on unarmed Afghanistans and another charged with shooting a suspected bomb maker. It’s also noteworthy in that the Secretary of the Navy was forced to resign and Pentagon officials furious that the president had disrupted the military judicial system.

A link to the timeline is here:
