President Trump Frees Lt. Clint Lorance from Leavenworth Prison!
Tom discusses Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance’s case with Attorney, John Maher and former U.S. Navy JAG Officer, Don Brown. Don was with Clint in NY, appearing on FoxNews to talk about Clint’s release and what’s next.
John tells Tom about the travesty that happened to Clint through the Obama Defense Dept ROE’s, the original attorneys assigned, and the years spent fighting against the injustice. John talks about President Trump’s promises to review these cases to make them right. President Trump saw the unfairness of process that was dealt to Clint, as well as Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher. He restored them to honor by keeping his promises despite the Defense Dept recommendations to remain neutral. Thank you to President Trump for granting these 3 well deserved and much needed pardons.
(CNN) President Donald Trump ignored Pentagon advice Friday to pardon two officers and restore the rank of a third after all faced war crimes allegations.
Trump granted a full pardon to Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, a full pardon to Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie R. Gallagher, who had been demoted.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper and other senior military leaders had told the President that a presidential pardon could potentially damage the integrity of the military judicial system, the ability of military leaders to ensure good order and discipline, and the confidence of US allies and partners who host US troops.
A US Defense official told CNN that the leadership of the Defense Department made every effort to ensure that the President had all the necessary information at his disposal prior to making this decision.
Even so, the President moved ahead with the decision, acting on the second day of the House impeachment inquiry’s public hearings.
