Trump to take imminent action on Lorance Goldsteyn and Gallagher cases

Well how’s this for a fantastic way to start the week, especially in the run-up to Veteran’s Day.

Fox News today reported that President Trump is going to take “imminent action” on the cases of Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, Army Green Beret Maj. Matt Golsteyn and former Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.

 

Fox News' Pete Hegseth reported Monday morning that he had personally spoken to the president over the weekend, and the president was keen to act before Veterans Day on November 11.

Hegseth said Trump - who ordered the review of the charges against Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Green Beret Maj. Matt Goldsteyn - will be meeting with Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy about the cases and an announcement could come within a week.

"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."

 

Regarding Gallagher, Hegseth said Trump wants to get the former SEAL rank restored.

As we reported here, Gallagher was acquitted of murder in July, but convicted on a lesser (but still felonious charge) of taking a photo with a dead ISIS fighter. A Navy judge reviewed his case and decided to uphold the original sentence, but disapproved the automatic reduction in rate to E-1. So as of last week, Gallagher was stuck as an E-6, rather than Chief Petty Officer, which means he’d lose out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in lifetime retirement pay.

 

We certainly hope Trump restores his rank, but frankly, the bogus charge should be dropped too, considering the very picture where Gallagher is pictured with the dead terrorist also includes a bunch of his platoon mates who were curiously not charged or reprimanded for doing the exact same thing.

Lorance is serving a 20-year sentence for ordering his men to shoot two suspected Taliban scouts. The scouts matched the descriptions a pilot had given earlier of scouts he’d spotted. After no weapons were found on the bodies, Lorance was charged. However, the prosecution disallowed exculpatory evidence in the trial indicating the scouts just happened to be Taliban bombmakers.

In Goldsteyn’s case, he was charged with premeditated murder in 2010 after he killed a suspected militant. (Bear in mind, killing bad guys was what he was sent to do). An initial investigation by the Army found insufficient evidence to charge him.

 

But that didn’t stop the do-gooders in the Army from trying to ruin Goldsteyn’s life anyway. They opened a second investigation in 2016 and charged him in December of 2018. If convicted, he could face life in prison.

Trump has already made clear his opinion on Goldsteyn’s case, and he may soon put that into action, according to Hegseth.

The case of Major Mathew Golsteyn is now under review of the White house

It is despicable that these cases have dragged on as long as they have, made possible by lawyers who’ve never been on the battlefield, and never had to make split second decisions in the heat of war.

This will be an amazing victory if Trump does take action on all these warriors’ cases this week, and reverses the miscarriage of justice they’ve all had to endure.

 

No wonder the Deep State hates him.

    Hopefully President Trump will do right by our Military Men and do right by the money hungry lawyers!

    It’s very hard for people not exposed to the impact that looking over your shoulder and not sleeping due to the fact that you may be killed or captured. Soldiers have missions that should not be evaluated by the anyone other than men involved with these types of circumstances. Once your overseas in foreign country and on your tasks you are fair game for the beheading torture and propaganda techniques used by the areas we involved in. Soldiers live with the demons each and every day there and here and it’s not something in my opinion we should judge them by! We cannot send men to protect our military interest after we train and drop them off and hope for the best and expect it to be some kind of smooth transition mental wise or physical wise! They come home dissected sometimes on the outside but dissected on the inside always! I feel like we owe them more than our opinion of their efforts. They gave metals in wars for acts that freed our country in the past wars and I feel like we should better police ourselves first! Leave events like this protected from social platforms that only want to hang these fine men based on their lack of combat experience but only keyboard combat!! Soldiers are all heroes!!

    I don’t understand how either of them could be charged. They did what they were sent to do. Drop all charges.

    This man should be aquited alo g with others does not deserve to go to jail ! He served this country he did the job he was suppose to do and it’s absolutely a travesry of justice to destroy a soldier for no reason!he should get his rank back and get his pension that he earned and deserves stop destroying soldiers live and giving fucking criminals walking papers our justice system is f up these soldiers are not criminals and are innocent !

    I certainly hope & pray Pres. Trump will dismiss all charges against these men and restore their former ranks. They are all trained killers and were just doing what they were trained to do. Nothing more … Nothing less.
