Members of Congress say video proves Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher is not guilty of killing ISIS fighter

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – There have been major moves in Congress this week regarding Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher. Wednesday, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter (CA-50) showed other Members of Congress video evidence he says exonerates Gallagher.

After showing the video evidence, Congressman Hunter hosted a press conference with Gallagher’s legal representation and brother to address the media on the content of the video. They all said the video shows Gallagher conducting medical treatment on the ISIS fighter, which should exonerate him from the alleged murder. See some of what they had to say in the video below.

Thursday, KUSI’s Ginger Jeffries reported the latest details in the Gallagher case. She reported that a death threat has came in to the US government that was written in Arabic.

Congress has asked the Investigator General of the Navy to look into why the charges against Chief Gallagher were filed, and if there was a basis for that filing.

Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher will begin trial for alleged war crimes in about three weeks.
