Fox News: Trump to restore Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher's rank to Chief: Fox News host Pete Hegseth said President Trump is expected to make an announcement in the next week about restoring the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
Hegseth said on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning that he learned the news during a conversation with Trump over the weekend, and the actions by the president are expected to come before Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, Fox News reported.
“It doesn’t have to be a pardon or a commutation,” Hegseth said. “It could be, but pardons and commutations imply guilt, that you’ve done something wrong and you need to be forgiven for that. The president, as the commander-in-chief, has a lot of latitude under the Uniform Code of Military Justice to dismiss a case or change a sentence. From what I understand, that is likely what will happen here shortly.”
