UPDATE: A Tragic Miscarriage of Justice for Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.08.19

On the morning of July 2, 2012, in the most dangerous warzone in the world, Lieutenant Clint Lorance took command of his small band of American paratroopers at the spearhead of the American War in Afghanistan. Intelligence reports that morning warned of a Taliban ambush against Lorance’s platoon. Fifteen minutes into their patrol, three military-age Afghan males crowded on a motorcycle and sped aggressively down a Taliban-controlled dirt road toward Lorance’s men.

Suicide-by-motorcycle had become a common Taliban murder-tactic against Americans.

Lorance had seconds to react. Either open fire and protect his men, or ignore the speeding motorcycle and pray like hell that his men weren’t about to get blown the hell up. In a split-second decision, Lorance ordered his men to fire. When no weapons were found on the Afghan bodies, the Army betrayed one of its finest young officers and prosecuted Lorance for “murder.”

“This Veteran’s Day, President Trump should emulate Lincoln by disproving the findings and the sentence to set Clint free, returning him to active duty,” reports the Washington Examiner.

“Imprisoned at Fort Leavenworth for more than six years, Clint has gotten no pay or benefits in prison. He gave 16 years to our country. A military pardon won’t restore Clint’s back pay and benefits, nor will it remove the stain of a dishonorable discharge. Disapproval of findings and sentence will accomplish all that, and finally right this national wrong,” adds the Examiner.

In my 15 years with the Sean Hannity Show, I have seen some of the most wonderful, amazing and truly incredible efforts by our listeners and viewers to help their fellow man. Unfortunately, I have seen the other side as well, a side where good men go to prison, while pompous and arrogant elitist spread ‘fake news.’

Today, I am reaching out to our audience to alert you to a tragic miscarriage of justice. Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance is sitting in Fort Leavenworth for a crime he did not commit. He is innocent, and after dedicating his life to this great country we have repaid him with a brown uniform and a jail cell.

Clint’s story has been widely reported, following the attack on July 2, 2012 in Afghanistan on his platoon. Like so many of our officers, Lorance and his platoon served under Barack Obama’s rules of engagement (ROE). These ROE were nothing but handcuffs for the brave men and women who were unfortunate enough to serve our nation during his tenure.

Clint’s situation has taken a turn for the worse with Brigadier General Berger, the Chief Judge of the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, who has the authority to oversee his case. Berger spoke out of turn against Clint, betraying his uniform and the people of this nation with the lies he has told about an innocent man.

Berger took to the stage to speak at CSIS where he proceeded to defame Lorance and lie about his actions while in Afghanistan. He was abusive and cruel with the words he ascribed to him, but further and most importantly, he LIED.  Clint’s attorneys informed General Berger that his  accusations were factually incorrect. Berger at first seemed eager to remedy his actions. But instead, he has chosen to allow that lie to live on and has not yet corrected the record.

One of Clint’s attorney’s Don Brown has written a book about the trials and tribulations of Clint’s case (Travesty Of Justice: The Shocking Prosecution of Lt. Clint Lorance) and has an entire chapter on General Berger; the salient points related to this article are here:

Now, we are bringing General Berger’s actions to the forefront. How can a man lying to hundreds of people about Clint’s ‘crimes’ be expected to rule fairly in his case? How can a man who is accusing Clint of crimes that he was acquitted of by a jury of his peers, be trusted to protect our nation and the men and women who serve it? I tell you this, I want Clint Lorance freed, but I also want General Berger held accountable for his disgusting behavior.

Hiding crucial evidence from the military jury, and ordering his own men to testify against him or face murder charges themselves, they railroaded Lorance into a 20-year prison sentence at Fort Leavenworth, where he remains today. TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE chronicles the true story of the most despicable political prosecution in American military history.
