Many of the men who served with Bowe Bergdahl have described him as a deserter but that didn’t stop Obama from trading multiple foreign terrorists for him a few years ago.
Now Bergdahl wants Obama to give him a pardon. Anyone surprised?
The Hill reports:
Bergdahl asks Obama for pardon
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive for five years and freed in an exchange for five Taliban prisoners, has asked President Obama to pardon him before leaving the White House.
A source told Fox News that Bergdahl wrote a letter to Obama thanking him for rescuing him in 2014 and trading him for the Guantanamo Bay detainees.
White House and Justice Department officials also told the New York Times that Bergdahl submitted several copies of a clemency application that were sent to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the White House immediately after the election.
The pardon would avert Bergdahl’s court-martial trial, which is slated to begin in April. He faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, endangering fellow soldiers.
President-elect Donald Trump was highly critical of Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor” who “should have been executed.”
Anyone want to bet Obama gives him the pardon?
Wouldn’t it fit right into Obama’s record to do so?
