Navy secretary fired over SEAL controversy says he was ordered to violate "sacred oath"


Recommended Posts

President Trump's Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said he was fired in the controversy over a Navy SEAL because the president gave him an order he couldn't, "in good conscience," carry out.

Secretary Spencer's removal follows a dispute that began when the president reversed the Navy's demotion of Edward Gallagher, who was convicted of posing for a photo with a dead ISIS fighter in Iraq. Gallagher was also accused of murdering a prisoner of war, but was acquitted of that charge. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/edward-gallagher-controversy-navy-secretary-richard-spencer-fired-says-he-was-ordered-to-violate-sacred-oath/
