    Trump Pardons Three Service Members in War Crimes Cases
    The moves signaled that as commander in chief, Mr. Trump intends to use his power as the ultimate arbiter of military justice.

    President Trump cleared three members of the armed services on Friday who have been accused or convicted of war crimes, overruling military leaders who had sought to punish them. All three have been championed by conservative lawmakers and commentators, who have portrayed them as war heroes unfairly prosecuted for actions taken in the heat and confusion of battle.

    Mr. Trump announced that he was ordering the release of Clint Lorance, a former Army lieutenant, from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, where he is serving a 19-year sentence for the murder of two civilians. He ordered the dropping of murder charges against Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn, an Army Special Forces officer whose trial was scheduled for December. And he reversed the demotion of Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher, a Navy SEAL who was acquitted of murder charges but convicted of a lesser offense in a high-profile war crimes case over the summer.

    The moves signaled that as commander in chief, Mr. Trump intends to use his power as the ultimate arbiter of military justice in ways unlike any other president in modern times.

    It'll be interesting to see how this goes over with veterans and current service members. They don't have nearly the same advantage that they used to in numbers. And there's already a few sizable progressive veterans groups.

    Don't think it's a coincidence that he did this on a Friday night after the evening news was going to air on the major networks. Classic tactic. Not to mention, something else for cable news to cover instead of his real time witness intimidation.

    The opinion of a 13-year veteran: The fact that this man did this OVER the wishes of the system of military justice is completely wrong and unforgivable. If someone wants to re-visit their sentences, there are ways in place to do so. But this action seems to have come almost out of nowhere, and is clearly being used as a way to fire up the ultra-right and distract from other current issues.

    Trump initially opposed the sale of javelin missiles to Ukraine in 2017. McMaster and Mattis assured Ukraine the sale would go forward when he was “in a good mood.” The day after tax reform passed, they brought Trump the approval document. He signed it.

    Trump undergoes 'quick exam and labs' as part of annual physical exam at Walter Reed

    Updated 5:53 PM ET, Sat November 16, 2019

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump underwent a "quick exam and labs" as part of his annual physical exam on Saturday, out of anticipation of a "very busy 2020," the White House said.

    Trump, 73, made an unannounced visit Saturday afternoon to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    "Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed," White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

    After a little more than two hours at Walter Reed, Trump returned to the White House.

    Grisham said in a statement that the "President remains healthy and energetic without complaints," and that he met with the family of a US Special Forces soldier injured in Afghanistan.

    "The President also stopped by to say hello to the medical staff of Walter Reed, to share his thanks for all the outstanding care they provide to our Wounded Warriors, and wish them an early happy Thanksgiving," Grisham added.

    The President's annual physical exam comes as he's gearing up for a reelection campaign next year and fighting a House impeachment inquiry.

    Trump's trip to Walter Reed took place under unusual circumstances.

    His two previous physical exams in office were announced ahead of time by the White House and noted on his daily public schedule.

    This time, however, the President's motorcade drove to the medical center unannounced, with reporters under direction not to report his movement until they arrived at Walter Reed. Trump typically takes the Marine One helicopter to Walter Reed, but on Saturday's clear-skied day, the President opted for the motorcade.

    Trump underwent a full physical examination at the Walter Reed military hospital in February, and was deemed to be in "very good health overall."

    At February's physical exam, Trump weighed 243 pounds, four pounds more than the previous year's exam. His blood pressure was measured as 118/80, and results showed he had increased his daily dose of rosuvastatin, a medication used to treat high cholesterol, according to the exam results.

    The examination took "approximately four hours" and did not require any sedation or anesthesia, according to the President's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, who performed and supervised the exam. Last year's exam revealed that Trump has a common form of heart disease and high cholesterol.
