Navy secretary ‘fired’ for proposing ‘secret agreement’ with White House in SEAL case

Navy secretary 'fired' for proposing 'secret agreement' with White House in SEAL case 1

 

In an extraordinary move, the Pentagon chief "fired" the Navy secretary for going outside his chain of command by proposing a "secret agreement with the White House," according to a senior defense official. The agreement that led to Defense Secretary Mark Esper forcing Navy Secretary Richard Spencer's resignation involved the case of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.

  1. This country is going to pot. I have never seen anyone as bad as this leader.

    • @Eric Ryan You accused him of being hate filled yet you just displayed nothing but hatred in your message. Dems couldn’t be any more stupid than this..

    • @Donald Trump Trump is at best a middling businessman, more like a string of failures held together by loans, but he is completely unqualified, though he may be authorized, to run our country. We’ll see how and when we can start fixing the tremendous damage he’s done by his sheer ineptness, much less his corrupt intentions at every turn. You guys all think cuz the stock market went up and you got a short term tax break that he’s a friggin god. The only thing I can say us that you are even dumber than he is.

    • @Jiri Stach and I bet you say being intolerant of intolerance is wrong. go to bed dingbat.

    • USA is doing just fine so enjoy the ride..

  2. impeach the treasonous peach!

    • @Nullion Chinzako I guess if anything you say is right, he’ll be impeached within the month, right? Or before his next term?

      I mean, it’d be bad if you were being brainwashed by fake news and believed he was going to be impeached for the last 3+ years of your life, wouldn’t it? That’d be crazy.

      Even if he is impeached in the House, the Senate won’t convict him. He’ll win re-election in 2020. Prepare for 4 more years.

    • @Southern Fun Says the dumptruck that believes any day now there will be a ‘mass arrest’ of the ‘ebil leffis’. I don’t think impeachment not happening means what you think it means. I understand conservatives think in very simplistic, often too simplistic, of terms and abhor facts and research – but he has done impeachable things; multiple in fact.

      I know you love him, think he is your god or whatever reincarnated, but he has demonstrably used charities as fronts to fund his campaign, he has demonstrably asked foreign powers to help him stay in power in the US and to investigate his enemies, and many more.

      @Southern Fun The house is already moving on to the vote. Expect it before January, if not December.

      Nobody believed he was /about/ to be impeached for the past 3 years, because nobody was conducting any impeachment hearings.

      Now? When the evidence is so damning, and when there’s actual impeachment hearings going on? Yeah, I can say we, the majority of the nation who believe he should be removed from office, are quite confident he’ll be impeached.

    • @Nullion Chinzako Evidence is so damning….you must exclusively watch CNN. Support for impeachment has been plummeting since it became public. Conjecture isn’t evidence. The republicans can use this to call some of their own witness’s though. Would be worth it just to have Schiff, Hunter, Caiamella ect to have to testify. All of those ambassadors thought it was inappropriate but none of them accused the president of or claimed to have any evidence of bribery. They will impeach him on obstruction and maybe contempt of congress. They will frame it around bribery. This will go nowhere and keep most of your presidential nominees in Washington.

  3. This administration is a Crime Infested Den.

  4. lol but yeh what rudy did wasn’t ouside of the chain of command

  5. “Just remember what you are seeing & hearing is not whats happening.” DJtRump quote

  6. Does any good news ever come out of this White House?

  7. ….and Republicans say nothing. WTF?

      @Richard Hunt Navy’s been beating Army more times than not. Much to my dad’s happiness ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve had friends in every branch and a great Grandfather who was an Army Doctor in WW1 in the trenches. Seeing my Dad and Grandfather though in Navy Flight suits during WW2 and Vietnam, I bleed Navy(I grew up at NAS Pt. Mugu all through the 80’s).

    • Why do you care about spencer. Are you related to him?

    • @Charlie Gomez Maybe you’re American ?
      I doubt it!!

    • @Richard Hunt im more of American than you homie. Demoshits & libs are not Americans or human to me.

      @Whispering Whiskers misuse of classified info? On a private server? You mean like Ivanka Trump did? Or Mike pence when he was governor? Oh yeah, it doesn’t matter now does it? Ivanka used her personal email and phone while handling classified gov information… The EXACT thing that t bag cried about during the election. Double standards much?

    • Get that TDS looked at. You dont want to suffer another 5 years.

      @xcynicalreasonsx that’s not true. All her record were reviewed. Did you miss that part? No classified information.

      You have proof? No you don’t. Obama served in the Kenyan navy. I don’t have proof either.

  10. He is currupting the entire US

  11. For somebody that doesn’t know a stitch about The Armed services; Why keep sticking your nose in!

    • @H. G. Wells if Obama did what trump did and ignored a military decision you would call Obama a traitor to his country for his actions. The military personnel understand discipline as it’s the glue which keeps them together. They were for trump and now many feel insulted and may not support him in the future.

    • Trump is president and he calls the shots little boy.

    • Because fucker runs around like a headless chicken…and has about as much brainpower as a headless chicken….

    • Trump did go to military school. So he knows. He is doing what is wanted… destroying government

    Now Trump is splitting up the military , who’s next. ?

    • @Cobra Commander I know you didn’t.. but you seem to dismiss the article because it appeared in a “left leaning” site. Anyway.. much nicer to engage with a real person with a profile. (Rather than name / empty page) Is there a source you find reliable.? If it said the Jav’s are kept away from the Donbas… you might reconsider. Who do you trust for news. Apparently, not Fox.

    • Cobra Commander | November 24, 2019 at 10:31 PM | Reply

      @donofon101 I dont trust any news with talking about intentions of military weaponry. They can only assume. Yes , I’ve listened to Fox, as well as CNN, and other news sources. But it irks me when people “media” pretend to have a clue about military intentions and uses. They cant even get the definition of * what an automatic weapon is…lol Sorry, I follow my own analysis of intentions of military actions after reading from any news source. I will get random headlines and I’ll read it from anywhere.

    • Thats a stupid comment even for a libtard.

    • Overall, we rate Crooks and Liars strongly Left Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that almost always favor Liberal causes. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting due to reasonable sourcing and fact check record. However, due to the use of sensational headlines and loaded wording, as well as not strictly adhering to the consensus of science with GMOโ€™s, we cannot rate them High for factual reporting.
      Detailed Reporting
      Factual Reporting: MOSTLY FACTUAL@Cobra Commander

  13. Like I said; this administration is corrupting every institution in the U. S. A.!!!!

  14. How long will it be before Donnie says he couldโ€™ve been a Seal if he wanted too

  15. He is building his own army who will obey him when needed

    • @Whispering Whiskers military does tend to vote republican, that is a well documented fact.

    • @Noneya Bizz

      Actually no. Military leadership is also (and primarily) beholden to the Constitution.

      @Daniel Blain I’ll turn on the web cam & you can watch

    • @Marshal Giggleman you have no idea what your talking about. Our military are not racists and I believe more of the military support Trump than dont. Did you serve in the military at all? Where are you getting your information from or are you one of those liberal left wing idiots that never served in the military but yet believes everything your spoon fed from the liberal media? We are all one people and should stop the divisiveness that is separating us as Americans. We all want it to be better and we have to work together to get it done.

  17. Read what the people around Gallagher said he done.

  18. This emboldens not only the murderer and those like him, but could also cause real serious problems to the military as a whole.
