Bowe Bergdahl

Sgt Bowe Bergdahl’s lawyers want to meet Trump over his comments about their client being a ‘no good traitor’

Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said they may seek a deposition from Donald Trump or call him as a witness at a legal proceeding, saying they fear his comments could affect their client’s right to a fair trial.

Bergdahl’s attorney Army Lt. Col. Franklin Rosenblatt asked Trump in a letter dated on Saturday for an interview to discuss his comments about Bergdahl, who faces military charges after walking off a post in Afghanistan in 2009.

Defense attorney Eugene Fidell previously asked, publicly, that Trump cease making comments about Bergdahl, such as his comment in October that the soldier was a ‘traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed.’

    and given the fact that hillary c did far more damage to the country than that douche…

      Hillary makes one long for the days when she would have been drawn and quartered.

    Trump wants tougher libel laws to protect his ego & brand from insult. Yet he can’t seem to manage a single campaign speech without committing libel.

      Oh piss off!
      Read the story and actually think about it (if you can)! This is nothing more than defense lawyer maneuvering. It has nothing to do with libel. If it had ANYTHING to do with libel the lawyer would have filed a libel suit. Your Trump Derangement Syndrome is so extreme that you grasp at any straw to try to attack him.

      It’s about creating headlines. Distracting the judges’ attention from the actual content of the trial, about forcing the military tribunal to feel a subtle obligation to his client and generating sympathy.
      As well, I wouldn’t doubt the army lawyer has a long view eye on his private practice when he leaves the military. Attacking Trump is a pretty big feather in his cap and since 99.999% of lawyers are left wing elitist shitbags his career would be elevated to the stratosphere.
      In short it’s Johnny Cochrane/OJ type sleaze. You’re too dim to see it or too dishonest to admit it.

      I’m sure you want us to be good little sheep and support whatever pre-programmed establishment fuck that the backroom boys place out for us. But I don’t feel like that thank you. The rich, backroom scumbags had their chance many times and look at the mess.

        Trump epitomizes rich scumbag.

          Certainly, when dealing with nervous nellies (or nervous ninnies), I find myself pointing out: It’s not about Trump. It’s about whether the American aristocracy really owns the United States, whose inhabitants are serfs. Whether that aristocracy can prance around on the global stage, enriching itself off third world labour and then do-gooding abroad or “saving the planet” as it pleases, like Mother Angela Merkel–safely indifferent to the local outcome.

            The American people own the United States.

        • G

          And you epitomize an establishment sheep.

          • No need for personal invective, Trump does have some silly notions, one of them is Libel law.

          • andycanuck

            Except the MSM keeps literally lying about him like the “David Duke endorsement” that Luna believes because it was in a newspaper (about someone she hates).

          • luna

            Define establishment.

          • G

            LOL! You have no defense engage in hair splitting, debate minutia and count angels on pin heads.
            Wow! You and (thankfully dead) Johnny Cochrane would have been best pals.

            BCF I regret and apologize for disrespecting your blog. But as a canadian I can’t vote for Trump but I CAN attack his opponents. If Luna(tic) wants to post absurdities about a candidate North America desperately needs then I will attack her.

            I’m afraid Trump fractured all legitimate opposition to Islam.

      Er, slander is the word you are searching for.

      • Kell

        slander or defamation, though its unlikely bergdahl has any to defame!

    • Brett_McS

      It’s standard demagoguery, but instead of “I feel your pain”, it’s “I feel your anger”. Yeh, sure.

      Don’t vote angry, people!

  • BillyHW

    Bergdahl’s family should be executed too. His father is ano-good jihadist.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      That photo op at the white house with zero and bergdahl’s parents is one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen.
      And I used to clean public washrooms at a wedding hall.

      • BillyHW

        It was certainly barf-worthy.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          It was more than that.
          It was How Fucking Dare You.

    About Their Client Being A ‘No Good Traitor’

    What’s to disagree with?

    • Clausewitz

      At least in the US, truth is still a defense, unlike Canada where the truth carries no weight in our “Legal” system. Remember we don’t have a Justice system in the Great White North.

  • andycanuck

    It’s not a civil trial so there’s no jury to contaminate; and officers sitting on a board are sworn to be impartial.

    • Clausewitz

      You mean like our Canadian Supreme Court? Yeah that works well, they’re not the least bit impartial.

  • ntt1

    Trump understated the bergdahl treason by limiting it to bowe ,the entire family is just a marginally better spoken version of the Kadr family. The only hope for bergdahl senior is to claim mental dimishment through rampant drug abuse.

    • simus1

      The bergdahl crowd, including their shysters, should be spread eagled upside down over a glowing charcoal fire with a drum full of broken hockey sticks nearby for those who would like to take things to the next level.

  • Pavelina

    I believe we’re still free to express our opinion. Many people, including I, believe Bergdahl is a traitor. And I’m not shy about saying so.
