Trump 'glad to help' Navy SEAL acquitted of murder

Trump 'glad to help' Navy SEAL acquitted of murderUS President Donald Trump on Wednesday congratulated a US Navy Seal who was acquitted of murder in a war crimes trial, and took credit for helping. A military court in California cleared Edward Gallagher, 40, Tuesday of the murder of a teenage Islamic State group prisoner in 2017 in Iraq as well as other serious charges related to the case. Gallagher was found guilty only of posing with the slain fighter’s body in a group picture with other SEALs, a charge that carries a much lighter sentence.
