President Trump just issued a major pardon decision. The mainstream media is fuming, and people are stunned.

Former Army lieutenant Michael Behenna has been pardoned by President Trump after a groundswell of support poured in. He was convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi prisoner, which he maintained was in self-dense.

“Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement. She noted his “broad support” and that he’d been a “model prisoner.”

She noted “concern about how the trial court had handled” his self-defense claim and that the Army “reduced his sentence to 15 years and paroled him as soon as he was eligible in 2014—just 5 years into his sentence.”

The ACLU, an organization that serves as the media’s lapdog, released a statement condemning Trump’s pardon of Behenna and leveling wild accusations against Trump.

Hina Shamsi, the ACLU’s national security project director, said Trump’s pardon is “presidential endorsement of a murder” and that he “should prevent war crimes, not endorse or excuse them.”
