Likely Charges Announced Against Lt. Col. Scheller for Speaking Out Against Military Leaders Who Surrendered to Taliban and Armed them with $80 Billion in US Weapons
Congressman Troy Nehls (R-TX) contacted Col. Maura M. Hennigan from the Marine Corps Liaison Office to get some answers on Lt. Col. Stuart Sheller’s pre-trial confinement.
Rep. Nehls was told by Col. Hennigan that Lt. Col. Scheller is being held in confinement due to coronavirus. WTH?
She then listed off a number of charges Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller will likely face for daring to rebuke military leadership for surrendering to the Taliban, arming the terrorists group with $83 billion in US weapons, and stranding thousands of Americans and green card holders in the country. When 13 American servicemen and women were slaughtered by an ISIS bomber Lt. Col. Scheller spoke out.
Here is the information Rep. Troy Nehls tweeted out today.
Today, I reached out to Col. Maura M. Hennigan from the Marine Corps Liaison Office to get some answers on Lt. Col. Stuart Sheller’s pre-trial confinement. I was concerned that he is being unjustly held for merely speaking out against his superiors.
This was her response:
LtCol Scheller is assigned to School of Infantry – East, Training Command. He was placed in pretrial confinement on September 27, 2021 in the Marine Corps Installations East Regional Brig aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. He is in an initial fourteen-day period of isolation in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.
Charges have not yet been preferred but LtCol Scheller is suspected of violating:
1.) Article 88 (contempt toward officials),
2.) Article 90 (willfully disobeying superior commissioned officer),
3.) Article 92 (failure to obey order or regulation),
4.) Article 133 (conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
These are allegations and LtCol Scheller is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
A commander has probable cause to order pretrial confinement when there is a reasonable belief that: (1) an offense triable by court martial has been committed; (2) the person confined committed it; and (3) confinement is required by the circumstances. Within 48 hours of the imposition of confinement a neutral and detached officer will review the adequacy of the probable cause to continue pretrial confinement. If continued pretrial confinement is approved, the commander shall prepare a written memorandum within 72 of the imposition of pretrial confinement stating the reasons why the requirements for pretrial confinement have been met.
Within seven days of the imposition of pretrial confinement, a neutral and detached officer from outside the confined Marine’s chain of command will conduct a hearing to review the commander’s probable cause determination and the necessity for pretrial confinement. LtCol Scheller’s hearing is scheduled
