(Tea Party PAC) – While the eyes of the Democrat-media complex were fixed on the sham impeachment hearing in Washington on Friday, President Donald Trump had more important things to worry about.
Instead of get caught up in the show trial, he instead issued clemency to two Army officers who have been accused of war crimes, Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, who is currently in Leavenworth, and Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn, who has been charged with murder.
He also restored the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher to chief petty officer after an absurd court battle over a picture he took with a dead ISIS terrorist.
Six years ago, Army Lt. Clint Lorance was found guilty of second-degree murder. However, he was ordered released Friday night by POTUS.
Golsteyn was investigated (twice) and charged with premeditated murder for killing a Taliban bomb maker in 2010.
Thanks, Obama, locking up the brave men who protect our nation from terrorists for killing these terrorists!

President Trump has granted clemency to two Army officers accused or convicted of war crimes and restored Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher to the rank of chief petty officer after he was docked a pay grade after being convicted of posing for a photo with a dead Islamic State (ISIS) fighter, the White House announced Friday.
Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance could be released from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, as soon as Friday evening, six years after being found guilty of second-degree murder. Maj. Matt Golsteyn, a former Green Beret, will have the murder charge against him dropped.
“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,” the White House said in a statement Friday night.
