Trump Hints at His Next Possible Pardon
 
President Trump has announced he will look closely into a case involving a Green Beret who is being charged with murder for the killing of a bomb maker in Afghanistan.

According to The Daily Wire:

President Trump on Sunday vowed to review the case of a former Army Green Beret who has been charged with the killing a man in Afghanistan whom he suspected was a Taliban bombmaker.

Army Maj. Matthew Golsteyn was charged with murder on Thursday, long after he acknowledged the killing in a 2016 Fox News interview.

"Major Matthew Golsteyn's immediate commander has determined that sufficient evidence exists to warrant the preferral of charges against him," said Lt. Col. Loren Bymer, a spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command. "Major Golsteyn has been charged with the murder of an Afghan male during his 2010 deployment to Afghanistan," he said.

...

Trump said that many have requested he look into the case, which he pledged to do.

  The alleged murder was brought to the attention of authorities during a polygraph test when Golsteyn was interviewing for the FBI. The murder charge was then brought seven years later. This is a death penalty offense.
