Navy secretary 'fired' for proposing 'secret agreement' with White House in SEAL case

In an extraordinary move, the Pentagon chief “fired” the Navy secretary for going outside his chain of command by proposing a “secret agreement with the White House,” according to a senior defense official. The agreement that led to Defense Secretary Mark Esper forcing Navy Secretary Richard Spencer’s resignation involved the case of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.
