According to a report by The Military Times, President Trump was considering intervening in several Court Martial decisions with the intent of pardoning some military members and outright setting aside (overturning) the conviction of at least one other. From the article:
Defense Secretary Mark Esper has talked to President Donald Trump about the commander in chief’s plan to potentially pardon two soldiers and a sailor, an action CNN reported Wednesday is intended to serve as a Veterans Day gesture.
Navy Times reported Monday that Trump discussed restoring SEAL Edward “Eddie” Gallagher’s pay grade to chief petty officer, a week after a demotion to petty officer first class was allowed to stand.
The president also has mulled pardoning Army 1st LT. Clint Lorance and dropping the case against MAJ. Mathew GOlsteyn, Navy Times indicated.
“I’m not going to comment on that,” Esper told reporters at the Pentagon on Wednesday. “As you know, I’m in the chain of command and I’m very conscious of my remarks. But I do have full confidence in the military justice system and we’ll let things play out as they play out.”

Esper added that he met with Trump on Tuesday and had a “robust” conversation about the proposed pardons.
