Spencer is out amidst mishandling of Eddie Gallagher’s case. One thing should stand clear with all personnel. Trump is Commander in Chief and what he says is the final word regardless if you disagree.
Gallagher’s attorney’s filed case against Spencer today after finding Spencer had previously spread lies and was intimidating people from testifying on Gallaghers behalf at trial. Gallagher was found not guilty but reduced rank. After Trump restored his rank, Spencer sought immediately to remove his Trident and status going forward.
This sends a strong and much needed message about insubordination to the Commander in Chief and Sec of Defense.
