2 July 2019: INNOCENT!!
A jury found decorated Navy SEAL Edward “Eddie” Gallagher not guilty Tuesday on almost all charges he was facing, including murder and attempted murder, in the killing of a teenage Islamic State member in Iraq.
Gallagher was accused of fatally stabbing a 15-year old ISIS fighter to death in 2017 and posing with the corpse for photos. He faced seven criminal charges total– six of the most serious charges included premeditated murder, willfully discharging a firearm to endanger human life, retaliation against members of his platoon for reporting his alleged actions, obstruction of justice, and the attempted murders of two noncombatants all of which he was found not guilty. He was found guilty of the seventh charge, posing for a photo with a casualty, which carries a maximum prison sentence of four months.
24 June 2019:
US Navy SEAL SOC Chief Eddie Gallagher – Today NCIS agents were forced to admit under cross examination that they took Chief Gallagher’s 8 and 18 year old sons out of his home at gunpoint in their underwear. In addition, the prosecutor’s forensic expert admitted he could NOT say that the ISIS Terrorist had been stabbed, and he could not conclude the cause of death.”
This case is FULL of Bad Actors but what is clear is 2 things:
- JOE WARPINSKI is responsible for laying siege to Gallagher’s family home with over 20+ NCIS agents with M4 machine guns pointed at children who were dragged into the street in their underwear… NCIS admitted this on the stand today with no shame. NCIS said not only is this SOP for them to drag children out of their homes with machine guns pointed at their heads it is also not necessary for NCIS to wear body cams and record this behavior, despite the fact that they are NOT trained for this type of tactical siege, meaning they could have shot Chief Gallagher’s children with one misstep, bump, or sneeze ~ but that was a risk they were willing to take.
- The people responsible for Chief Gallagher being taken on September 11th – Patriot’s Day – from a TBI Clinic at NICoE Pendleton where he was prepping for his retirement are none other than NSW Group 1 Com MATT ROSENBLOOM & his side-kick GRP1 JAG LT. KELEIGH ANDERSON who has been in court every day with the Prosecution.
The choice to arrest Chief Gallagher in the middle of TBI treatment was none other than Matt Rosenbloom. He also sided with the malcontents to ensure he was locked up in solitaire confinement, keeping Chief Gallagher locked away for 9 1/2 months without proper access to Medical Treatment.
The fact that NCIS terrorized Chief Gallagher’s children and family is sick, but no longer surprising as we learn more and more about the NCIS. However, the most reprehensible part of all this is that the Hierarchy of the upper Brass who chose to add injury to insult and did not provide assistance to the family when their home was raided. In fact, they are the ones who ordered the arrest of Chief Gallagher on Sept 11th, locking him up with convicted Rapists and Pedophiles for over 9 ½ months.
Furthering that, we also learned in court last week that the same Navy SEAL Hierarchy who has worked hand in hand with NCIS/Prosecutors/Malcontents to falsely imprison Chief Gallagher actually promoted one of the Malcontent’s to the elite DEVGRU team (SEAL Team Six). Yes, the same millennial SEAL who admitted in court to sabotaging the mission and endangering fellow Navy SEALs and Allies by firing more warning shots FOR ISIS than shots AT ISIS, well he was moved to the same team that is best known for taking down Osama Bin Laden. This millennial SEAL also admitted on the stand to disparaging and lying about SEAL Team Six team members. These malcontents deserve nothing less than to be ejected immediately from the Navy with DISHONORABLE Discharges and locked up in Leavenworth while they are put on trial for aiding and abetting the enemy.
Chief Gallagher has clearly and unequivocally stated his innocence from the beginning. The TRUTH is the same, day in and day out, and the TRUTH is what is on Chief Gallagher’s side.
‘This entire case was built on a small group of people that had personal animosity towards Eddie Gallagher… This is a group of young disgruntled sailors that didn’t like being told that they were cowards,’ Chief Gallagher’s lawyer said and added they made the story up.
20 Jun 2019 – Prosecutors are still going after Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher for murder even though someone else just confessed to the crime …
Day 4 of Trial… “First, overwhelming misconduct, then the government spies on the defense team without a warrant – a federal crime – and then, the governments key witness admits under cross examination that he himself killed the ISIS detainee and not Chief Eddie Gallagher. At what point does the government admit that this case should have never been brought in the first place?”
Trial Scheduled for 17 JUN 2019
San Diego, June 16, 2019 – Tomorrow at
noon we will begin jury selection in the case of the United States v. Edward R.
Gallagher. After weeks of delay due to serious government misconduct, SOC
Gallagher will finally have the opportunity to face his accusers at trial.
Over the course of the trial we will expose the false narrative spread by these accusers for what it is…a smear campaign full of lies. Our team will show that the truth is not only our client’s best defense, but most importantly, that the truth proves SOC Gallagher’s innocence.
Preparation for a criminal trial of this nature is time intensive both in and outside of the courtroom. In order to balance the needs of our client and the right of the public to be informed, a member of our defense team or a spokesperson will meet briefly with members of the media outside the courtroom at the end of each day to answer questions about the trial and its progression. SOC Gallagher’s family will be present intermittently during this time at their convenience.
For any additional media requests or inquiries on behalf of the Gallagher family or SOC Gallagher’s defense team, please contact Kelly Wilson, Counsel for Parlatore Law Group at Kelly.Wilson@parlatorelawgroup.com
UPDATE 1 Feb 2019 – Today, two different military judges DROPPED KEY CHARGES in Eddie’s case that the prosecution trumped up ~ CONFIRMING what we’ve said all along – this entire investigation is a farce AND a black eye on EVERYONE INVOLVED!
A reasonable judge ruled that reenlisting on the battlefield is NOT a ‘war crime’. ”It is honorable for a Navy SEAL to reenlist on the battlefield, the same battlefield where he was willing to sacrifice his own life to protect our nation,” Portier’s civilian defense attorney, Jeremiah J. Sullivan III”
Overzealous, corrupt navy lawyers have shown time and again they have NO IDEA what they’re doing and have OVERREACHED to take down a SEAL.
The prosecution has had to drop 4 total charges THUS far – proof they have SMEARED the name of a good man in pursuit of a false story line.
There are still absurd and baseless charges of killing a dying ISIS Terrorist, but this article affirms what we’ve repeatedly stated in that all these “claims” stem from 1-2 SO1’s who have CHILDISH complaints against Eddie simply because they didn’t like his LEADERSHIP and AGGRESSION on the battlefield – in other words, for doing his job as a SEAL – they conspired to take down an elite warrior.
The quotes from this article show it all – lies; inconsistencies; juvenile behavior. It’s a sham that NSW and NCIS even allowed this to happen. It is clear now more than EVER – they need to #FREEEDDIE NOW‼️
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.
