U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper indicated Thursday that it’s possible Navy Capt. Brett Crozier, who was relieved of his command of the USS Theodore Roosevelt after raising concerns about a coronavirus outbreak, could be reinstated.
An investigation into the incident was completed last week, and the Navy is now reviewing its findings, Esper said on the “TODAY” show Thursday.
“It will come to me at some point in time. As I’m in the chain of command, I can’t comment on that further, but I got to keep an open mind with regard to everything,” Esper said.
