President Trump Has Had ENOUGH – He Just Replaced Him

A story that largely remained under the radar for awhile has dominated headlines after a variety of unexpected twists and turns over the weekend.

President Donald Trump recently got heavily involved in the case involving Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher.

In July, a military jury convicted Gallagher of illegally posing for pictures with the corpse of an ISIS terrorist while he was deployed to Iraq in 2017.

After it was revealed that Navy prosecutors had mishandled the prosecution, Trump stepped in.

The president pardoned Gallagher for his actions, declared that he should remain a SEAL, and ordered that he have all of the honors and pins that he earned.

Trump’s actions to help the SEAL came after the Navy knocked Gallagher down to petty officer.

Gallagher was facing a review board of peers to determine if he needs to be removed from the Navy’s elite warfighter squadrons.

Late last week, Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer refused an order from Trump to shut down the latest investigation into Gallagher.

Spencer refused to end the military review board into Gallagher, so Trump fired him.

Trump has nominated retired Navy Rear Admiral and current Ambassador to Norway Kenneth Braithwaite to replace the Spencer.

A senior U.S. official told Fox News that Spencer was fired for “dishonesty and undermining the military justice system” as well as for “lack of candor.”

The president tweeted Sunday evening he would nominate Braithwaite for the position and that he “was not pleased” with the way Gallagher’s trial was handled by the Navy.

An interesting pattern has emerged over recent years: all the career Obama bureaucrats believe they are the ones who run the government and that everyone who came along after need to just shut up and do whatever they say.

But they aren’t running the show, Trump is.

Trump won the 2016 election in a landslide because the American people voted him into office to get things done.

And that’s exactly what the president has been doing, especially for American heroes like Gallagher.

After Spencer’s resignation and confirmation that he could keep his Trident pin and rank, Gallagher had nothing but high praises for Trump.

“President Donald Trump, you have my deepest gratitude and thanks,” Gallagher said. “You stepped in numerous times and showed true moral fiber by correcting all the wrongs that were being done to me. You are a true leader and exactly what the military and this nation needs. God bless you and your family.”

The embattled SEAL expects to retire by Nov. 30, said his lawyer, Tim Parlatore.

When asked if Gallagher’s spat with the Navy is over, Parlatore told the Washington Examiner, “I hope. I sincerely hope.”

And because Trump stepped in, Gallagher has been pardoned for his alleged crimes and will retire as a decorated SEAL with all of the honors and pins he earned serving our nation.
