Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, in an interview that aired Sunday, said President Trump had slandered American troops by considering pardoning servicemen accused of war crimes -- and said the proposal threatened to undermine the countrys legal and moral foundations.
When you serve, you are agreeing to serve the Constitution and uphold the law and, frankly, his idea that being sent to fight makes you automatically into some kind of war criminal is a slander against veterans that could come only from somebody who never served, the South Bend, Ind., mayor said on ABC News This Week.
Buttigieg, an Afghanistan War veteran, was responding to remarks Trump made Friday in which the president said he was looking at possible pardons. The New York Times had first reported Trump was considering granting pardons to soldiers accused of war crimes around Memorial Day.
Some of these soldiers are people that have fought hard and long, Trump told reporters. You know, we teach them how to be great fighters, and then when they fight, sometimes they get really treated very unfairly.
Trump said he was considering pardons for two or three of them but said he hadnt yet made a decision.

Buttplug is nuts!
Does he know that is an asinine characterization of the President's position? Or is he utterly deluded?
Pete.....dont talk with your mouth full.
Butt, butt, butt...
He should keep hid mouth shut period.
Hey, stake whatever contrived position you want...
Yeah Petie old boy? What’s your view on obama negotiating with terrorists for a TRAITOR?
What exactly did Buttigieg do in Afghanistan? Stuff that might be similar to what Bowe Bergdahl did, maybe . . . ?
Pete spends a lot of energy looking for villains, even when none truly exist. He started with talk about VP Pence.
Yeah I don’t get that statement, doesn’t make any sense. Another twisted logic sound bite.
That faggot would have been removed from my Squadron.
Asshole sex is just that. Demented F-stick he is.
He is only demonstrating his own ignorance and hate towards the military.
“Does he know that is an asinine characterization of the President’s position? Or is he utterly deluded? “
He’s a clueless kid who spouts what he is told without an ounce of comprehension. What the President said is in no way
Related to hat the three dollar bill said.
He went to Afghanistan thinking he would be in a meat market among US troops.
You’d think somebody who self-proclaims he was a soldier in a warzone would be more understanding and sympathetic of his fellow brothers and what they had to endure.
Or then maybe he was a desk jockey...
Homos are mentally unstable and need medical attention. Should have a whole team of Doctors working on that warped brain .
Butti-Judge can be pretty righteous in his condemnation of how President Trump mitigates the wrongs heaped upon combat veterans who were doing their duties to defend the nation to the best of their ability. These sentences were passed by doctrinaire legal minds far from the heat of battle, and some very mistaken motives were attributed to the defendants charged under the relevant articles, as if the charges were simply made up altogether and with no relation to the realities.
