President Trump Rescinds Navy Achievement Medals for Prosecutors Who Tried to Convict SEAL Eddie Gallagher

The military prosecutors were set to receive awards after failing to convict Eddie Gallagher on war crimes charges.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump blocked Navy prosecutors who charged a decorated Navy SEAL with war crimes from receiving an award for their role in the criminal proceedings.

Navy Prosecutors tried and failed to secure a conviction against Eddie Gallagher, who they accused of murder and various war crimes.

The President tweeted about the situation Wednesday morning, pointing out the discrepancies related to the case that led him to intervene in the first place.

President Trump had ordered that now-Petty Officer First Class Gallagher be freed from solitary confinement in order to properly fight his case against the Naval Criminal Investigative Service prosecutors.

Gallagher had been charged with premeditated murder, attempted murder, and obstruction of justice for alleged incidences during his deployment to Iraq in 2017.

The prosecution’s case against Gallagher, that accused him of murdering a wounded ISIS-affiliated prisoner, ran into a roadblock when another service member admitted to the killing of the ISIS prisoner in question.

The combat medic who admitted killing the prisoner was given immunity in return for his testimony, guaranteeing that he wouldn’t be prosecuted for his actions.

Gallagher was found guilty of posing for a picture next to the corpse of an ISIS terrorist, but found not guilty on the other serious charges naval prosecutors levied against him.

Gallagher was ultimately demoted one rank from an E-8 to an E-7, and will continue his military career. If convicted of more serious offenses, he would have all but certainly received an OTH (other-than-honorable) discharge.

President Trump has intervened to prevent the naval prosecutors who charged Gallagher from patting themselves on the back with a snappy military award for absolutely nothing.

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP

An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.

Published

on

A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.

Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.

Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.

Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.

No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.

Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.

A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.

The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.

Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.

Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.

UPDATE:

Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
