Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher was released from pre-trial confinement late Thursday after a contentious pre-trial hearing in which Navy prosecutors’ admitted misconduct came under serious scrutiny. When the Defense Team identified the cyber spyware in emails sent from Navy Prosecution/NCIS, the Prosecutors admitted to installing the tracking software.
Chief Gallagher’s Legal Defense Team made a series of motions in Thursday’s hearing to push for charges to be dismissed against him due to prosecutorial misconduct. Among other things, sources familiar with the matter say, the prosecution administered a lie detector test to Gallagher–which he passed–and did not disclose that to the court or to the defense. Couple this with prosecution spying on the defense and on the news media through email tracking programs, and it is easy to see where the lack of truth and lack of evidence lies… with the Navy JAG/NCIS agents.
