Three men in the defense team of a Navy SEAL leader accused of war crimes have close ties with President Donald Trump.

There have been reports in recent days that Trump is both Edward & # 39; Eddie & # 39; Gallagher wants to grant others favor on Memorial Day.

Gallagher is accused of killing a prisoner and shooting two unarmed civilians, a violation of military law, during the deployment in Mosul, Iraq, in 2017.

It has now become apparent that Marc Mukasey, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, and Bernard Kerik have joined the legal defense team at Gallagher. Task and purpose.

Mukaskey recently went to court in an attempt to prevent Deutsche Bank and Capital One from passing on Trump's financial information to members of the House of Representatives. The move was blocked by a judge.

And Kerik is the former business partner of Trump's lawyer and former mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani.

But that is not the only connection. Gallagher's main defender, Tim Parlatore, is Fox News's morning lawyer Pete Hegseth.

Hegseth spoke privately with Trump in an attempt to convince him to convict various military members accused of war crimes, including Gallagher, according to the Daily Beast.

The news report reported that Hegseth told Trump that it was & # 39; very unfair & # 39; was related to how Gallagher was treated.

In turn, Trump tweeted in March Gallagher would be moved to & # 39; less restrictive detention while awaiting his day in the courtroom & # 39 ;.

Gallagher has not pleaded guilty to all the accusations made against him.

He is accused of being dead – with a hunting knife – an injured and unarmed ISIS hunter who was captured by US forces receiving medical care.

The Navy SEAL reportedly posed for photos with his corpse and endangered spectators to remain silent, the Daily Beast reported.

Gallagher would also shoot unarmed civilians, including a schoolgirl and an older man.

The New York Times reported that when members of the Navy SEAL Team 7 Alpha Platoon first reported Galllagher crimes, they received no response.

Rumor has it that Trump (pictured, May 2019) will forgive Gallagher and other soldiers accused of war crimes on Memorial Day

When they met their troop driver and asked him to conduct a formal investigation, the commander warned them that whistleblowers could cost their careers.

Last week, Gallagher lawyers accused military prosecutors of installing tracking software in emails.

According to The Associated Press, the software is said to be hidden in a logo of an American flag with an American bald eagle.

& # 39; I've seen some crazy things, but for a case like this it's complete madness, & # 39; said Parlatore, chief lawyer. & # 39; I was absolutely astonished … especially considering that it is so obvious that the government is the one that is leaking it. & # 39;

The Gallagher trial is currently scheduled for 10 June.
