Trump Plans to Pardon Accuse War Criminals Before They Go To Trial

Below is a twitter thread unroll from Scott Hechinger, a public defender in Brooklyn. It is important to note that none of the men accused has gone to trial yet. That is what Trump is trying to prevent. 662 views Scott Hechinger @ScottHech  Subscribe 14 hours ago, 20 tweets, 4 min read  Read on Twitter  Bookmark  Save as PDF “One day, from his sniper nest, Chief Gallagher shot a girl in a flower-print hijab who was walking w/ other girls on the riverbank. She dropped, clutching her stomach, & the other girls dragged her away.” Trump is preparing to pardon this war criminal. Navy SEALs Were Warned Against Reporting Their Chief for War CrimesThe Navy investigation of a highly decorated platoon leader who now faces court-martial found a subculture that prized aggression and protected wrongdoers.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/23/us/navy-seals-crimes-of-war.html A mass murderer according to Senior Seals: “Would order needless risks, to fire rockets at houses for no apparent reason. He routinely parked an armored truck on a Tigris River bridge & emptied the truck’s heavy machine gun into neighborhoods on twith no discernible targets.” “Platoon members said he spent much of his time in a hidden perch with a sniper rifle, firing three or four times as often as other platoon snipers. They said he boasted about the number of people he had killed, including women.” “Two other snipers said, the chief shot an unarmed man in a white robe with a wispy white beard. They said the man fell, a red blotch spreading on his back.” “Gallagher ordered a hatchet & a hunting knife” before 2017 deployment. He texted the man who made them (a Navy Seal veteran) shortly after arriving in Iraq: “I’ll try and dig that knife or hatchet on someone’s skull!” May 2017, a SEAL medic was treating a wounded 15 y/o Islamic State fighter. “He’s mine,” Gallagher said. “Gallagher walked up without a word and stabbed the wounded teenager several times in the neck and once in the chest with his hunting knife, killing him.” He didn’t even try to hide the murder of the 15 y/o. He brought other seals around minutes later & took a photo over the body. Later, he texted the photo to a fellow SEAL in California: “Good story behind this, got him with my hunting knife.” Platoon members tried time & time again to report about what he was doing. Praying that higher ups would do something. They were told to “decompress.” After he stabbed the 15 y/o: “SEALs called a platoon meeting & discussed how to keep the chief away from anyone he could harm.” SEAL team 7 members filed formal complaints & called for an investigation about the “shocking acts” they had seen their chief commit. Instead of investigating, platoon members were warned “that speaking out could cost them and others their careers.” Gallagher for his part, didn’t like all the snitching going on. Texts: “I just got word these guys went crying to the wrong person. The only thing we can do as good team guys is pass the word on those traitors. They are not brothers at all.” This is the kind of guy Trump has sympathy for. And will likely pardon. A war criminal, who mass murdered Muslim people. Killed w/ pride, hatred & zero remorse. Brazenly gloated about it. And then […]
