Urgent Petition to Donald Trump

by Lt.Col. Allen West: President Obama refused to pardon an innocent U.S. soldier before he left office.

Now I'm asking you to sign this PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE urging President Trump to do what Obama refused to: send this innocent soldier home where he belongs!

In July, 2012, 1LT Clint Lorance was sent to Afghanistan to replace a platoon leader who was seriously wounded in a Taliban attack. On his third day on the job, Clint and his men were on patrol when a U.S. helicopter radioed that a motorcycle was sitting outside of the village near a road only used by the Taliban. When the motorcycle started gunning toward the platoon, 1LT Lorance ordered his marksman to fire.

Two of the riders were killed. The other was captured in the village, where days earlier a U.S. soldier was shot in the neck.

Those of us who have been stationed in Afghanistan know the tactics and actions of the enemy.

Without a doubt, these men posed a threat to Clint's platoon. And as the commanding officer, Clint knew he was responsible for getting every single one of his soldiers back to base alive.

1Lt Clint Lorance
Yet our own government didn't agree. 1LT Lorance was convicted of murder and sentenced to 20 years at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. And even though the government withheld critical evidence during the trial that could have proven Clint's innocence, the three judges on the Army Court of Criminal Appeals recently ruled that Clint will stay in prison.

You see, it is customary for U.S. Presidents to grant high-profile pardons just before leaving office. However, when Obama's term came to an end on January 20, 2017, he refused to commute Clint's sentence.
  • Instead, Obama did commute the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning, who leaked sensitive national security information and put our troops at risk.
  • He did commute the sentence of Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was serving 50 years in prison for plotting to overthrow the U.S. government and whose group killed four Americans in a New York City bombing in 1975.
  • And of course he pardoned and commuted the sentences of hundreds of criminal cocaine and heroin dealers.
As a combat veteran, I'm disgusted that Obama let traitors, drug dealers and murderers out of prison early – while 1LT Lorance is left to serve a 20-year sentence for protecting his men on the battlefield!

But now that Donald Trump has taken office, you and I have a new chance to finally free 1LT Lorance.

My friend, Clint Lorance signed up to serve his country and risked his life on the battlefield to protect your freedom. When his men were threatened, he did exactly what our military trained him to do.

As a combat veteran with 22 years of service, I can't turn my back on this young soldier. And I hope you won't either.

That's why I'm asking you on behalf of the United American Patriots (UAP), an organization founded by another combat veteran who knows just like I do that you can't second-guess our young men for their split-second actions behind enemy lines.

UAP provides legal defenses for soldiers like Clint who have been unfairly accused of crimes for their actions in deadly combat zones. In fact, they're assisting 6 other wrongly accused soldiers who are sitting behind bars at Fort Leavenworth, in addition to funding 2 separate efforts to free Clint – a new appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces and of course this Presidential Pardon campaign.

But as a non-profit organization, UAP doesn't receive a dime of federal funding. Instead, they depend on the big hearts of American patriots like you who support them and their mission.

Every penny raised will support UAP's efforts to collect millions of Petitions on Clint's behalf – and cover the legal fees for other innocent soldiers – so if you are in the position to send a tax-deductible gift, I pray you will.

1LT Clint Lorance served our country honorably and courageously for 10 years. He does not deserve to be treated as a cold-blooded murderer for doing his job.

On behalf of 1LT Lorance and his family, his legal team and UAP, thank you in advance for your support. PRESIDENTIAL PARDON PETITION FOR ARMY 1LT CLINT LORANCE.
