Opinion: This piece of human garbage should be put up against a wall and shot. However, Obama with his preference for fellow Muslims, called him a hero. In reality Berdahl he was a spoiled brat who wanted to be a man by joining the Army. Unfortunately for the Army, Bergdahl never made the grade, instead left his fellow soldiers in the field, running away like a coward. As a result of Berdahl’s betrayal, and capture by the Taliban, eight brave men lost their lives attempting to rescue his worthless ass.
Now this spoiled child’s lawyers are putting President Trump into the mix. Trump rightly inferred Bergdahl was a disgrace. However, no matter what his failed ambulance chasers say, Bergdahl is guilty of cowardice and desertion in the face of the enemy. In my opinion the last sound Bergdahl should ever hear is the sound of a shell casing hitting the ground as he begins his journey into hell….WFM
(Not a word of mention of these heroes made by Obama – a total disgrace)
Bowe Bergdahl’s lawyers seek to know if jurors voted for Trump….
By Douglas Ernst, The Washington Times, June 22, 2017
Comments made by Mr. Trump during his 2016 Republican campaign for the White House have influenced one of the most high-profile, court-martial cases in U.S. Army history. Lawyers for Sgt. Bergdahl, the soldier who left his post in Afghanistan in June 2009, have a private 41-question survey for a Fort Bragg judge to consider. One of 17 questions objected to by prosecutors involves support for Mr. Trump’s campaign.
“The principal issue has to do with ensuring we are able to identify people who have been nominated to be on the court-martial panel — the jury — who are not in a position to render an impartial judgment,” Eugene Fidell, Sgt. Bergdahl’s lead attorney, said Wednesday during a pretrial hearing, Stars and Stripes reported.
The judge overseeing the government’s case, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, acknowledged that Mr. Trump’s campaign rhetoric may be “problematic,” but will hold off on a decision regarding the question until later this week.
Army Maj. Justin C. Oshana, one of the prosecutors, countered that asking potential jurors if they were familiar with Mr. Trump’s comments (60 negative remarks over a three-month period) would suffice.
“A person not aware of any of the comments made by Mr. Trump, but who voted for him, is not a prejudice issue,” the officer said, the newspaper reported.
