Bowe Bergdahl's Sentencing Delayed Over Trump's Comments

Source: NBC News, by Morgan Radford and Corky Siemaszko

The long-awaited sentencing of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was delayed Monday after a legal battle erupted over the word "but" in President Donald Trump's most recent remarks about the case.

Bergdahl's defense team argued that their client could not get a fair shake from the court because Trump, during a Rose Garden appearance on Oct. 16, at first said he couldn't talk about the case and then added: "But I think people have heard my comments in the past."

Bergdahl’s lawyers argued Trump’s remarks while running for office made a fair trial impossible because as commander in chief, everybody involved in the trial answers to him.

Nance said Trump’s comments were “disturbing and disappointing” but did not constitute unlawful command influence because they were uttered before he was elected.

Sounds like what the so-called Commander-in-Chief has to say NOW makes a difference.

About Trump's deferments and why his sons have not bothered to consider military service?
