The comments came as Rep. Duncan Hunter of California vouched for a Navy SEAL chief facing allegations that he killed a war prisoner.

“Eddie [Gallagher] did one bad thing that I’m guilty of, too,” he said, “– taking a picture of the body and saying something stupid.”

Hunter confirmed that he subsequently shared the images he took. He previously defended Gallagher among other service members facing charges, decrying “what happens when Military prosecutors become more obsessed with career advancement and sensational headlines than executing the rule of law.”
