Edward Gallagher remains in San Diego, California, for a large number of war crimes including murder and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say that he killed a young ISIS hunter in Mosul in 2017 by stabbing him twice and that he enjoys the boy's death.

Gallagher insists that he did not kill the hunter or intends to kill the hunter and says he opened his neck with a knife to make him breathe through a tube because he had a collapsed lung.

Despite another man confessing to cover the tube with his thumb to kill the boy in a gesture of grace so that he would not be tortured to death by the Iraqi forces, the prosecutors continue their case against Gallagher.

His wife Andrea spoke with ABC news this week in an interview that will be broadcast on Monday in which they beat their efforts and said the case was weak.

& # 39; The (Uniform Code of Military Justice) UCMJ is really struggling with this, and also the fact that the NCIS investigator lead agent, Joe Warpinski … we will really get a chance to share all the things he did to be considered and corrupt.

& # 39; We believe that this case would never have come to this point if a real investigation had been made. The honesty aspect is what we had always opted for, & she said.

& # 39; I feel good after listening to the government witnesses for a week. I am more confident than ever that my husband will finally get his day in court and have the ability to prove his innocence.

& # 39; The contradictions of the witnesses were just as powerful as those of Corey Scott. I felt that every single witness they brought up was rather inconsistent, & she said.

She added that her husband is sure that he will be acquitted.

& # 39; He is confident. My husband has always maintained his innocence from the beginning; he has had faith.

& # 39; He wanted to start the trial. We have waited so long for this opportunity. & # 39;

Previously, his lawyer said that he was founded by a group of Millennials who are not of his leadership style & old school & # 39; loved it.

Corey Scott (left in a court sketch) was summoned on Thursday as a witness-witness in the case against Edward Gallagher. Gallagher (right) has been accused of killing the young ISIS militant by stabbing him several times in the neck and sides, but he denies it and claims it is being erected.

& # 39; This whole thing was built on a small group of people who had personal hostility toward Eddie Gallagher.

& # 39; The younger millennial SEALs were just there to say they were SEALs. This is not a murder, but a mutiny, & Tim Parlatore said.

& # 39; This is a group of young, unsatisfied sailors who did not like to be told that they were cowards and so they decided to swear together to take down the chief. They have made up a story and that is why we are here. & # 39;

On Friday, SEAL Team 7 & # 39; s Dalton Tolbert confirmed that he had shot a warning at an old man during their tour in 2017 and then the man was hit by another shot.

He claimed that he later heard a voice on the radio say & # 39; you missed him but I & # 39; and it sounded like Gallagher. But he replied to the defense that he did not know where the shot came from.

Regarding stabbing the ISIS militant, Tolbert said he arrived after the prisoner died, but he later learned that Gallagher said something similar: & # 39; I thought you were cool with it. & # 39;

However, Scott told the court that he did it because he thought that the boy would have been killed by Iraqi forces anyway and that he did not want him to be tortured.

& # 39; I knew he was going to die anyway and wanted to save him from waking up to what would happen to him & # 39 ;, he said.

He said Gallagher was not guilty of murder and added: & he has a wife and a family.

& # 39; I don't think he should spend the rest of his life in prison. & # 39;

Conquered prosecutors hit back.

& # 39; You can stand there and you can lie about how you killed the ISIS prisoner, so chief commander Gallagher does not have to go to jail, & # 39; Naval Attorney Lieutenant Brian John told him.

Gallagher has long claimed that, instead of stabbing the hunter, he used a knife to open his throat and insert a ventilator tube.

He had a collapsed lung after being injured during a strike and unable to breathe, he said.

The boy died in May 2017 after another group of SEALs had informed the men of Gallagher that they had him.

Gallagher and his men were on the battlefield and other witnesses testified that he said, "leave him, he is all mine."

When they arrived, the boy was still alive, they said.

Gallagher approached him to help him, but, they said, out of nowhere, he stabbed the boy in his neck and in his side.

One claimed that after the boy died, he tried to justify it by giving him & # 39; just an ISIS garbage bag & # 39; to name.

Photos that were shown at the court also showed him how he posed with the boy and held him to the head.

But Gallagher insists that he only tried to help him.

Thursday, Scott supported Gallagher & # 39; s version of the events and said he put his thumb over the tube as soon as Gallagher placed it.

He admitted that Gallagher would have stabbed the boy in the side, but said he thought he would have survived if he hadn't closed his breathing tube.

Prosecutors were stunned by the admission and told the court that it was the first they had ever heard.

Scott & # 39; s testimony on Thursday is the first to support Gallagher since the trial began on Monday.

Others have painted him as bloodthirsty and say he enjoys attacking the Iraqis.

Gallagher has always denied that he killed the hunter and says that he is being set up by the other SEALs because they don't like his leadership style.

His lawyer says they were angry that he had called them cowards.

One of the SEAL & # 39; s told the court on Tuesday that he had also seen Gallagher shoot at an older Iraqi man and a group of women gathering water from a river.
