Trump Says He’ll Block Military from Removing SEAL Who Posed With Dead ISIS Member

President Trump has declared via Twitter Thursday he will block the military from removing Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher.

The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin. This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!

Per Insider, Gallagher was ordered to report to duty to Naval Base Coronado on Friday, the Navy Times reports, amid rumors that Gallagher could be headed to a Trident Review Board, which could decide to strip him of his status as a Navy SEAL and the golden Trident insignia all SEALs wear. But Rear Adm. Collin Green, the Navy SEAL who leads Naval Special Warfare Command, took no administrative action last week, although Green could still strip Gallagher of his Trident pin.

“If Green pulls Gallagher’s Trident, he can fly to DC and see me in the Court of Federal Claims,” Gallagher’s attorney, Timothy Parlatore, told Insider.

In a scathing letter to Green, Parlatore accuses the NSWC leader of “conspiring to retaliate” against Gallagher, and condemns Green for declining to apply the same punishment to other members of the SEAL platoon also featured in photos with the deceased teenage ISIS fighter.

Gallagher spoke out after Trump restored his Naval rank over the weekend.
