Fox & Friends Pete Hegseth conducted a compelling interview with Major Mathew Golsteyn, a young man who went from military hero to enemy of the state after he killed a Taliban bomb-maker who had killed two men in his unit. Major Matt Golsteyn, a former decorated Green Beret was fighting in Afghanistan in 2010, when they captured a Taliban bomb maker. He was cleared of wrongdoing in 2015 after he admitted to killing the bombmaker, but after an interview with Fox News’ Bret Bair, the Army decided to reopen the case in 2016.

Fox News reports – Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, a decorated former Green Beret who has been charged in the death of a suspected Taliban bomber, defended his actions on Sunday ahead of an Article 32 hearing next month.

During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Golsteyn said he is facing a minimum of life in prison or the death penalty if he is found guilty of premeditated murder — a charge he disputed vigorously.

“Over these years, what the U.S. Army seems to be intent on doing is characterizing an ambush as murder. Those routine combat actions are now being characterized as murder,” Golsteyn told “Fox & Friends.”

Golsteyn said the Army has kept him from his legal counsel and his family by restricting him to Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Enter President Trump, who just tweeted this update on Major Golsteyn’s murder case:

The case of Major Mathew Golsteyn is now under review at the White House. Mathew is a highly decorated Green Beret who is being tried for killing a Taliban bombmaker. We train our boys to be killing machines, then prosecute them when they kill! @PeteHegseth

He was convicted under President Obama, who sent our troops to Afghanistan to play board games with the Taliban. Will President Trump fight for the release of former Green Beret Major Golsteyn?
