"WASHINGTON — Military leaders hoping to keep the Secretary of the Navy from quitting lobbied President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One to stop intervening in the case of a Navy SEAL accused of murder, say five current and one former military and defense officials."
"Navy Secretary Richard Spencer responded Thursday by telling the White House that a tweet is not an official order and if the president is ordering the Navy to end the Trident Review Board of Gallagher, he needs to do so in writing, according to five current and two former military officials."

It appears incomprehensible that Trump would want to take that action when the Navy is dead-set against it. He needs to listen to what the Navy has to say and then reverse course. To cause the Secretary of the Navy to resign over Trump's capriciousness is simply not worth it as that leadership position is quite valuable to the Navy and to the United States.

These arrogant liberals show they do not understand how the chain of command works. This is just more insubordination.

Oh you again - The one who approves of acting as judge, jury & executioner of prisoners. The one who approves of goofing with their dead bodies on social media. The one who approves of the torture at Abu Ghraib. The one who approves of war criminals - Just as long as they are OUR war criminals.

Charming :rolleyes:

What's stopping the Sec from resigning?

Except fear and common sense, I mean?

Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.

If he can't do the job, they'll get someone who can...
