I recently wrote a post about the president inserting himself into the military justice system by pardoning some convicted war criminals…..read it for yourself…..https://lobotero.com/2019/11/25/messing-with-the-military/
Now that he has successfully crapped all over the UCMJ he wants to use his actions to help him with his election with the military and those fake patriots that say they support them.
If Donald Trump gets his wish, he’ll soon take the three convicted or accused war criminals he spared from consequence on the road as special guests in his re-election campaign, according to two sources who have heard Trump discuss their potential roles for the 2020 effort.
Despite military and international backlash to Trump’s Nov. 15 clemency—fallout from which cost Navy Secretary Richard Spencer his job on Sunday—Trump believes he has rectified major injustices. Two people tell The Daily Beast they’ve heard Trump talk about how he’d like to have the now-cleared Clint Lorance, Matthew Golsteyn, or Edward Gallagher show up at his 2020 rallies, or even have a moment on stage at his renomination convention in Charlotte next year. Right-wing media have portrayed all three as martyrs brought down by “political correctness” within the military.
“He briefly discussed making it a big deal at the convention,” said one of these sources, who requested anonymity to talk about private conversations. “The president made a reference to the 2016 [convention] and where they brought on-stage heroes” like former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, who refused to execute detained civilians ahead of a devastating Taliban attack.
This nothing but a political stunt trying to win favor with the military…the same military that he plays games with….with their funds and with their lives.
Waiting for one of the GOP faithful that pretend every election that they have the military’s back for them and screw over them the first chance they get. You want to call someone traitor then look NO further than the GOP.
As I have written before…..Trump needs to keep his grubby LITTLE hands off the UCMJ…..it has worked for over 200 years it does not need anything but to be left alone.
