(Tea Party PAC) – On Saturday, the President intervened on behalf of American hero and decorated US Navy SEAL, Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, who has been charged with “premeditated murder” of an ISIS terrorist.
US Navy prosecutors accused Gallagher of murder after he stabbed an injured 15-year-old ISIS terrorist in Mosul, Iraq, in May of 2017.
To add insult to injury, Gallagher was arrested on September 11th, 2018, Patriot’s Day. The decorated SEAL was placed in shackles and detained in solitary confinement, even remaining shackled for 72 hours.
He is being held at Miramar Brig in San Diego, California.
Gallagher was also charged with aggravated assault for allegedly shooting civilians in Iraq.
Gallagher denies the charges and his attorney remains confident that he will be acquitted.
“In honor of his past service to our Country, Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher will soon be moved to less restrictive confinement while he awaits his day in court. Process should move quickly!” Trump wrote in a Saturday tweet.

Gallagher is a 19-year veteran of the US Navy and has done 8 tours, 6 as an elite special forces operator. He was ranked as the top SEAL chief and his platoon ranked as the top platoon in the SEALs.
This man is a true hero who has served valiantly for his country, and yet he is facing charges for killing the enemies of our country?!
The Navy SEALs Fund Brotherhood Beyond Battlefield, who call the charges made against him a “travesty of justice,” have started a fundraising campaign for him.
