Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher was acquitted of all major charges. Fox News reports:
Decorated Navy SEAL Edward “Eddie” Gallagher joined “Fox & Friends” Wednesday in an exclusive interview after he was found not guilty of murder and attempted murder in the killing of a teenage Islamic State member in Iraq.
Gallagher, who was accused of stabbing to death a 15-year-old ISIS fighter in 2017 and posing with the corpse for photos, told Pete Hegseth he was grateful to those who supported him through the process, including fellow service members, President Trump and Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter and Ralph Norman.
Gallagher, 40, was joined by his wife, Andrea, and attorney Tim Parlatore. He was asked about being described in numerous media reports as an accused war criminal.
“I believe they tried to frame me as a criminal from the get-go. But we knew the truth the whole time. We knew I was innocent of these charges. I overcame it by having my strong wife with me the whole time and my legal team fighting for me,” he said.
This is a huge win for the rule of law, and supporting servicemen fought for America’s freedoms.
