Former Navy Secretary Forced to Resign Shames Donald Trump for His Intervention in Accused War Criminal's Case
Navy Secretary Richard Spencer resigned on Sunday after President Donald Trump intervened in the case of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
Gallagher was found guilty in a military court after he unlawfully posed with the dead body of a teenage ISIS fighter, among other misconduct reported by his fellow SEALs. Gallagher was set to lose his Trident pin—meaning he'd be demoted from a Navy SEAL. Gallagher's guilt was found by a jury of his peers: fellow Navy SEALs.
