4 Jan 2019 – Arraignment

UPDATE 10 Jan 2019:

Today the Navy denied Special Operations Chief Edward “Eddie” Gallagher his motion to be released from pretrial confinement where he has been since his arrest during medical treatment on September 11, 2018 – Patriots Day. 🇺🇸🏙🙏🏻

The Government did not call a single witness and instead gave the judge well over 1500-pages to review, essentially the same tactic used at his initial hearing where the first unjust ruling to place him in confinement occurred. 🤬🤯😤

We are disappointed, but not surprised. A broken system yields broken results. The legal burden to keep Eddie behind bars is incredibly low. The Government has refused to put a witness on the stand, and Eddie and his defense team have been denied the right to call any witnesses to the allegations. In other words, the government has placed a decorated warrior behind bars for four months while denying him the ability to face his accusers. ‼️🗣

The court recognized Eddie’s record of excellent service as evidenced by the testimony of several senior, current and former SEAL Team members. The court also acknowledged Eddie’s strong support network of family, friends, and well-wishers. However, it was not enough when the complaining witnesses refused to be questioned by the defense and the Government refused to bring them to court.👨🏻‍⚖️😫

At trial, scheduled for February 19, 2019, Eddie will finally have the Constitutional right to confront his accusers and he eagerly awaits the opportunity to clear his name and reunite with his wife and children.♥️

Eddie and his family are devastated by this process, but resolved. Eddie has fought for this country for two decades with valor, honor, and dignity. He will win this battle, clear his name, and demonstrate to the country why this system is in dire need of reform.‼️ 🆘 ‼️

Arraignment Date:
Friday, January 4th at 9 am PST

Arraignment Location:
The courthouse~ Naval Base San Diego (32nd Street) building 56 1st Deck

Why: This is the next step in Chief Gallagher’s case where a judge sets dates for his trial and hears motions to let Chief Gallagher
out of pretrial confinement.

You can help!
We need as many people to attend as possible to show the judge and the prosecution that we won’t sit quietly while a war hero is maligned. Eddies friends and support community will also demonstrate that there are people that will vouch for Eddie and releasing him before trial carries no risk whatsoever.

The Navy needs to see that it cannot let an injustice like what is happening to Chief Gallagher continue. They need to see and hear from patriots who will show up and stand up in person to the atrocities being waged against a war hero.
