Navy Secretary says review of SEAL should proceed despite Trump’s opposition

Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer said Friday that a military review of the status of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher should proceed despite President Donald Trump tweeting Thursday that Gallagher should not lose it, a possible outcome of the review.

“I believe the process matters for good order and discipline,” Spencer told Reuters on the sidelines of the Halifax Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada.
According to Reuters, when Spencer was asked whether he believed the proceedings against Gallagher should continue, Spencer replied “Yes, I do.”
A spokesperson for Spencer told CNN that his comments were in line with previous statements the secretary has made about supporting his commanders.
