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

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
