Edward Gallagher, Navy SEAL Special Operations Chief, was court-martialed for murdering and then posing in pictures with the body. Gallagher was acquitted of most charges, but charges of unlawfully posing with the body stand. However, the news here is that the prosecutors of Gallagher’s case received awards after the acquittal. According to some tweets written by President Trump, the awards were “ridiculously given” since the prosecutors “lost the case.” Apparently, the president didn’t agree with the awards and wanted U.S. Navy Secretary, Richard Spencer to rescind them.
The Prosecutors who lost the case against SEAL Eddie Gallagher (who I released from solitary confinement so he could fight his case properly), were ridiculously given a Navy Achievement Medal. Not only did they lose the case, they had difficulty with respect….

Spencer has revoked prosecutors of said awards.
