According to The Gateway Pundit
On Monday, Marine Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was arrested and sent to the brig after he publicly excoriated Biden’s leadership over the United States’ catastrophic evacuation from Afghanistan that left 13 service members dead and several more critically injured among countless other atrocities.
Despite tendering his resignation over a month ago, he now sits in a cell indefinitely awaiting trial for simply questioning the chain of command.
On Tuesday night, Lt. Col. Scheller’s lawyer – Tony Buzbee – joined Tucker Carlson on his show to discuss the unprecedented political imprisonment and provide an update on the case.
Buzbee confirmed that the decorated Marine commander has been sitting in jail “indefinitely” since he was taken into custody and that he currently has no formal charges against him. There is “supposedly” an initial hearing set for this Thursday, but they have still not been notified about what his charges will be.
“When somebody tried to speak out and say: look, we could have done a lot better. We owed these marines, and sailors, and army personnel better than that.” – They not only told them to shut up, but when he didn’t shut up they put him in jail.”
Thankfully, Lt. Col. Scheller – who is a husband and a father – is in high spirits and has been optimistic throughout the ordeal. According to Buzbee, the support they have received from the public has been “overwhelming;” one group has already raised over $200,000 to donate towards his legal expenses.

Lt. Col. Scheller is a true American. The people have his back, they will not stand for this.
“People see this for what it is. They see this from the top brass trying to shirk responsibility and when somebody in the chain of command speaks up, they’re silenced – we can do better than that.
“All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud. He was asking for accountability. In fact, I think he even asked for an apology that we made mistakes, but they couldn’t do that, which is mind-blowing…
They had a gag order on him and asked him not to speak. He did, and they incarcerated him.
They don’t know what to do with him.”
