According to The Associated Press, Army Col. Jeffery Nance ruled on Friday that while Trump's comments were "disturbing and disappointing" they hadn't prevented the soldier from receiving a fair trial.

Bergdahl's lawyers have maintained that the case against their client should be dropped in light of Trump's public remarks. Trump repeatedly blasted Bergdahl during the presidential campaign, labeling him a "traitor."

"We're tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who's a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed," Trump said in October 2015.

“Thirty years ago, he would have been shot,” he added.

The prosecutors, however, argued that the comments are not relevant to the case since they were made before Trump became the commander in chief.

Bergdahl is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy after walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

Should be 2 TRAITORS SHOT !  

Yep!

this will be interesting to watch

I wished I could be on that Jury for this worthless Mus-slim scumbag! He is like the rest of his brothers-WORTHLESS & should face a firing squad ASAP! Some of his fellow solders died while searching for this deserter! Put him in Guantanamo & feed all those "camel humpers" to sharks! Take BO with him, too! Hopefully, sharks eat human dung! Sorry sharks!!!

Follow the letter of the LAW! And then EXECUTE!!!

         OTHERS WERE KILLED TRYING TO FIND HIM !  NO DISMISSAL !! 

No, let the men he served with decide. 

Give him to them for a 24 hour period, with total control as to what happens to him without impunity. 

No waste of time, no money spent on a free lawyer that we pay for, no housing him in a swanky prison, no money spent feeding, clothing or medical expenses for him forever. I can insure you, he would disappear, never to be heard from or seen again. End of story!!!

I hope the noose is waiting for this traitor as well as the retard obama!

He was known to have deserted his post to connect with the enemy. Why in the world was he promoted two enlisted ranks?

And shot he should be!!! He is a traitor and has caused the deaths needlessly of other soldiers.

Good or great he should stand trial.

When I was in the Army in the 60's I was given a special court martial because I missed an Adjutant General inspection even though I was in an auto accident the night before and was admitted to and was in the hospital for three days! I don't know what it is like today but when I was in the Army, if asked why you did something not consistent with military protocol, there was only one answer! NO EXCUSE SIR! For this infraction I was confined to post for 30 days and reduced one grade!

I also got a summary court martial for not getting a haircut, for this infraction I was given two weeks on KP and reduced one grade!

This bastard Bergdahl deserts his command and his fellow soldiers and he gets a promotion! If any President had a mental problem, it was Obama!

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
