Description

An unusual battle has broken out between President Trump and top military commanders over the future of a Navy SEAL commando.

Today, how a high-profile war-crimes investigation has prompted a war of words from the commander in chief — rocking the highest levels of the military. Guest: Dave Philipps, a national correspondent covering veterans and the military for The New York Times. For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily. 

Background reading:

  • Why Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher was investigated for war crimes, and why his fellow SEAL members broke the group’s code of silence to testify against him.
  • Order within his ranks was a “deadly serious business.” Now, Richard V. Spencer, the secretary of the Navy, has resigned after clashing with the president over Chief Gallagher’s demotion.
