Trump orders Navy to rescind medals given to prosecutors who failed to convict SEAL Eddie Gallagher

President Trump has ordered Navy officials to rescind medals given to Navy prosecutors who failed to secure a conviction against Special Warfare Chief Edward Gallagher, a Navy SEAL who was charged with war crimes.

"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," Trump said on Twitter Wednesday.

"Not only did they lose the case, they had difficulty with respect to information that may have been obtained from opposing lawyers and for giving immunity in a totally incompetent fashion. I have directed the Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer & Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson to immediately withdraw and rescind the awards. I am very happy for Eddie Gallagher and his family!"


Earlier this month, Gallagher was found not guilty on all charges except for unlawfully taking a picture with the corpse of a dead ISIS fighter he had been accused of killing. The case's prosecutors were awarded Navy Achievement Medals less than a week later.

Tough luck fellas, better luck next time. I'm sure the Chief and his hot potato wife are enjoying this turn of events!
