She said that “if it’s warranted, grant a pardon,” but in the case in which “someone has committed a war crime, then a sentence should be served.”
One service member Trump is considering is Navy SEAL Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, a veteran of the Iraq War, who, among other things, was charged with killing an enemy captive with a knife.
