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.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
