Your moment of Fox and Friends nausea for a Friday. Pete Hegseth being all chummy with Blackwater founder Erik Prince.

Hegseth has been pushing Trump, on television and in face-to-face lobbying meetings, to pardon war criminals convicted of killing civilians. Daily Beast:

If the president pardons U.S. servicemen...involved in high-profile cases of gunning down civilians or killing detainees...accused and convicted of war crimes, you can thank one of Donald Trump’s favorite cable-news hosts.

Trump had previously considered [Hegseth] for senior posts in his administration...

And this morning Hegseth referred to "so-called" war crimes. Adorable.
