The pardons of a president who, on the campaign track, expressed support for "harder" tactics than water tables and went after the terrorists' families could come "on or around Memorial Day," two US officials told the Times.
A military official told the Times that the White House made its request to the Justice Department Friday, and that while trust files typically take months to gather, the Justice Department had emphasized the files to be completed before the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
Times said that those who could potentially receive subsistence include a Navy SEAL facing attempts to shoot unarmed civilians and murder a wounded person along with a number of others accused or convicted of shooting or killing unarmed civilians .
Trump previously expressed sympathy for Eddie Gallagher, Navy SEAL in the matter, in a March tweet saying he would be moved to "less restrictive confinement" prior to his trial.
"In honor of its previous service to our country, the Navy Seal # EddieGallagher will soon be moved to less restrictive confinement while awaiting his day in court. The process must go fast! @Foxandfriends @RepRalphNorman," Trump tweeted.
Last year, Gallagher was charged with various violent incidents in Iraq in 201
7.  On the trail of the campaign, Trump indicated that he would support torture detainees as president, and after substantial recall of his enthusiastic comments on waterboarding and killing the families. Terrorists, he turned the position into a statement. But just days after taking office, Trump again said support for torture and said he "absolutely" thought it was working.
Trump's potential suffering for accused and convicted war criminals, if issued, would mark the latest US President's gesture against a change in US war effort standards and treat detained as he pointed to the campaign track.
Earlier this month, Trump resigned Michael Behenna, a former military soldier who was sentenced to 25 years in prison to kill a prisoner he drove into the Iraqi desert and shot twice. In April, the Trump administration revoked the visa to the main lawyer of the International Criminal Court, and a spokesman said at that time that the United States would take the necessary steps "to protect our people from unfair investigation."
The ICC, of which the United States is not a member, sought authorization earlier to open an investigation into crimes committed by US troops in Afghanistan.
