President Trump will take “imminent” action on the cases of three former U.S. military service members accused of war crimes, Fox News’ Pete Hegseth reported Monday.
Speaking on “Fox & Friends,” Hegseth said Trump – who ordered the review of the charges against Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn – will be meeting with Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy about the cases and an announcement could come within a week.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It doesn’t have to be a pardon or a commutation,” Hegseth said. “It could be, but pardons and commutations imply guilt, that you’ve done something wrong and you need to be forgiven for that. The president, as the commander-in-chief, has a lot of latitude under the Uniform Code of Military Justice to dismiss a case or change a sentence. From what I understand, that is likely what will happen here shortly.”
President Trump is also reportedly wanting to restore the rank of former Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was acquitted in July in the killing of an ISIS fighter in Iraq.
Hegseth said he spoke with the president over the weekend, and that Trump wants to take action regarding the cases of the 3 men before Veterans Day on November 11.
WATCH the video below, as Hegseth explains the three individual cases and argues that the military, still operating under some Obama policies, is being entirely too harsh on military members who have been trained to take out the enemy, then are being imprisoned for doing so.
