Fox and Friends host lobbied Trump on pardoning war criminals

If the president pardons U.S. servicemen accused and convicted of war crimes, you can thank one of Donald Trump’s favorite cable-news hosts.

Over the weekend, news broke that President Trump is preparing to pardon several U.S. servicemen involved in high-profile cases of gunning down civilians or killing detainees, with the White House having already ordered that the necessary paperwork be drawn up ahead of the coming Memorial Day.

The news came roughly two months after Trump publicly intervened in what he called “restrictive” confinement conditions of one of the alleged war criminals.

TVNL Comment: Military leaders oppose pardons of any soldiers convicted of war crimes.  These men were tried in military courts and found to violate laws clearly set out to prevent the crimes charged in these tribunals.  This is very dangerous to our own soldiers at war.
