Andrea Gallagher appeared on Fox & # 39; s & # 39; America & # 39; s Newsroom in an attempt to inform the president that her husband Edward – accused of shooting Iraqi civilians and killing an injured ISIS teenager – to reportedly restricted.
& # 39; It is an absolute nightmare. And I just want to let the President know he's being lied to, & said Andrea Gallagher. & # 39; Corruption is involved from above and we want to expose it. & # 39;
Andrea then turned her attention to financial misery.

& # 39; In the meantime, I suffer, & # 39; she added. & # 39; This case – only legal costs – will amount to almost half a million dollars. Which military family can afford that? & # 39;
Along with premeditated murder, 39-year-old SEAL Gallagher is charged with severe mistreatment.
& # 39; We have been endlessly tortured, ashamed, ashamed. Defamed. Enough is enough, & his wife continued. & # 39; The president said to unleash my husband. They have actually imposed on him a restriction that amounts to imprisonment. We need the president to take a good look. & # 39;
& # 39; Corruption is involved from above and we want to expose it, & # 39; she said
Andrea & # 39; s comments come after lawyers for Gallagher filed a 19-page motion in court against Naval Special Warfare Group 1 Commodore Captain Matthew D. Rosenbloom, according to Fox News.
The legal team at Gallagher accuses Rosenbloom of exceeding his authority, since the decorated SEAL is now being held in a factory in San Diego.
The lawyers ask the court for the & # 39; custody conditions that were unlawfully imposed on him & # 39; to delete.
& # 39; Despite numerous attempts to bring the illegality of these actions to the attention of CAPBURG Rosenbloom, hoping that he would turn the course, CAPT Rosenbloom has remained unyielding and rebellious towards both the Orders of the President of the United States as the basic principles of the Constitution, which he vowed to uphold and defend, & # 39; attorney Timothy Parlatore wrote in the submission.
The attorneys of the accused war criminal Eddie Gallagher accuse the navy of undermining President Trump's orders (above) by & # 39; unnecessary and punitive restrictions & # 39; to impose

Gallagher's lawyers say their client is required to be in & # 39; completely uniform of the day at all times between reveille and ticks & # 39 ;.
Gallagher also claims that he never & # 39; may wear civilian clothing.
The only meal options from Gallagher are a & # 39; vending machine and a limited selection of processed food & # 39; which is sold at a supermarket on site.
He cannot contact his wife and son, who live in Florida, except & # 39; in the presence of a commanding officer or defense lawyer & # 39 ;.
Gallagher is also not allowed to drive to the offices of his lawyers. If he wants to contact his lawyers, he may only do so under the supervision of a commander or a watchstander.
Perlatore says that the restrictions mean that Gallagher & # 39; cannot have privileged communication … while a third party is present & # 39; so & # 39;[ing] helping him prepare his own defense. & # 39;
In a letter to Gallagher's lawyers last week, Rosenbloom wrote that he had issued & # 39; those orders under the authority provided in me & # 39 ;.
Gallagher (shown this week in handcuffs) is confronted with accusations of premeditated murder and severe assault, including allegedly 15-year-old prisoners of war. His trial is in May
Last week a group of home republicans sent a letter to the Secretary of the Navy to raise their concerns about the treatment of Gallagher
& # 39; I have a reasonable conviction: crimes have been committed by the court martial; SOC Gallagher commits the crimes; and the restraint that is ordered is required by the circumstances, & Rosenbloom wrote.
& # 39; In accordance with findings made earlier by both the Internal Reviewing Officer and the Military Judge, I consider the restrictive provisions necessary to prevent attempts by SOC Gallagher to intimidate witnesses and impede the law. & # 39;
Rosenbloom also denied the claim of Gallagher & # 39; s lawyers that their client was denied access to medical care or legal assistance.
But Gallagher's lawyers criticized Rosenbloom's letter.
& # 39; Instead of engaging in meaningful discussions, CAPT Rosenbloom hides behind false pretensions of witness intimidation and false claims that SOC has full access to his defense team & # 39;
Gallagher was removed from the vault the same day, President Trump sent this tweet
Eric Trump tweeted a photo of Gallagher hugging his son. His brother Don Jr retweeted it
& # 39; CAPT Rosenbloom could not possibly have risen to the leading position he now holds and still lacks a fundamental understanding of the applicable constitutional principles or that limited phone access from the back deck is not sufficient to communicate with his lawyers.
& # 39; The only rational conclusion is that CAPT Rosenbloom fully understands these principles and flagrantly violates them to try to exert an improper influence on the outcome of this case. & # 39;
Gallagher's lawyers are asking the court to allow him to stay with his family in Florida before his trial begins.
& # 39; We respectfully request that SOCRALES provide this Honorable Court with the requested assistance so that it can enjoy its constitutional right to freedom – a right for which it has risked its own life – and so that it can adequately and effectively assist in the preparation of his own defense while fighting to preserve his innocence, & # 39; the lawyers wrote.
Last week Gallagher was allowed to see his wife and son after Trump intervened on his behalf.
Gallagher, 39, was released from Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar, a military prison in California, and transferred to another Marine facility in the San Diego area on Saturday.
The move came the same day Trump tweeted: & In honor of his former service to our country, Navy Seal # Eddy Gallagher will soon be moved to less restrictive detention while awaiting his day in court. The process should go fast! & # 39;
Gallagher, who served eight on duty for fifteen years, is confronted with allegations of premeditated murder and severe mistreatment. His lawsuit is scheduled to start next month.
He is accused of murdering an Afghan prisoner of war in Afghanistan by repeatedly stabbing him in 2017, conducting a reenlistment ceremony with the body of a militant and firing sniper rounds at civilians during his deployment in Iraq.
In addition to murder, Gallagher is charged with conducting a reenlistment ceremony with the body of the militant, and firing sniper rounds at civilians during his deployment in Iraq
Congressman Duncan Hunter, a Californian republican who defended the Gallagher case, said at the Brian Kilmeade Show last week that the prison guard was allowed to meet his wife and son after a transfer from the brig of a meal in a Denny's play golf at the naval base driving range, Fox News reported.
The wife of Gallagher, Andrea, posted an update on the Facebook page & # 39; Free Eddie Gallagher – Navy SEAL Chief & # 39 ;, thanks to Trump for exercising & # 39; real leadership in the together rewarding the struggle of our lives against false accusations. & # 39;
However, Andrea Gallagher complained that even after the intervention of Trump & # 39; Navy bureaucrats & # 39; have tried to pry her family & # 39; and threaten to put her husband back in the brig.
& # 39; We are so thankful for @realdonaldtrump and we thought that this would be an opportunity for our family to find some normality, but the reality is that they will do anything to manipulate this case – even an order from the president of the united states defying & # 39 ;, she complained.
The SEAL's wife recorded a number of intimate photos of her long-awaited reunion with her husband, in which she showed that Gallagher gave his wife a passionate kiss and embraced their son.
The son of President Eric tweeted a photo of Gallagher who hugged the boy and argued that after lifelong service, the Navy SEAL deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Trump & # 39; s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., later retweeted his brother's message, and added: & # 39; I disagree !!! #EddieGallagher. & # 39;
Hunter had a chance to meet Gallagher and described his way as & # 39; a little bit outside & # 39; but & # 39; extremely happy to be out of the safe & # 39 ;.
Gallagher was a decorated soldier who served for 19 years and was deployed eight times in Iraq and Afghanistan
Last week, a group of 18 home republicans condemned what they call the & # 39; horrific & # 39; circumstances that Gallagher had seen in prison while waiting for the trial.
The Navy SEAL allegedly had limited access to food, medical care and his legal team prior to his trial, and that he was imprisoned alongside convicted criminals.
& # 39; Chief Gallagher is a decorated war hunter who, like all members of staff, is entitled to the presumption of innocence awaiting the council of war, & # 39 ;, a letter from the politicians to the minister of Marine Richard Spencer.
Gallagher was a decorated soldier who served for 19 years and was deployed eight times in Iraq and Afghanistan. He had earned the Bronze Star with V for Valor, twice as good as a deserving unit bonus and a trio of medals for the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement.
Although Gallagher is called a hero, he is confronted with serious accusations of becoming a & # 39; monster & # 39; on the front line after almost two decades of service for years, according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors said witnesses said that Gallagher brags about killing up to 200 people – & # 39; three a day & # 39; during his deployment in 2017 to Mosul, Iraq, according to the San Diego Tribune.
In February, a military judge dropped two charges against the vet – allegations for allegedly performing the reenlistment ceremony next to the corpse and for operating a drone over the corpse. He will appear in court on 28 May.
