It would be nice if our fearless leader would see fit not to pardon Bergdahl and further stain his place in history as the worst president the USA has ever been subjected to.
Up until his release in exchange for high ranking Taliban and Al Qaeda military leaders, full-sized billboards could be seen along Interstate 90 here in the Inland Northwest. As soon as the skinny on this traitorous coward became commonly known; the billboards vanished. Those billboards depicted traitor Bergdahl in uniform, not smiling in the arms of bloodthirsty murdering muslim psychos.

Bergdahl is a cowardly scum that mailed his uniform back to his parents, along with messages stating that he was disillusioned with America's mission in Afghanistan, he had lost faith in the U.S. Army and was considering desertion. Bergdahl told his parents he was 'ashamed to even be American'.
Attorneys for the disgraced soldier recently filed clemency applications on his behalf with the White House, Justice Department and the Pentagon, the New York Times reported Friday, citing multiple government officials.
A court-martial slated to start in the spring will determine if Sgt. Bergdahl, 30, should be punished for deserting his post and consorting with the enemy. If convicted, he faces the possibility of life imprisonment.
Sgt. Bergdahl’s lead defense lawyer, Eugene R. Fidell, declined to comment the legal team’s efforts when reached by the newspaper prior to publication. If the case is still pending when Mr. Trump is inaugurated next month, however, then Mr. Fidell said he’ll file a motion for dismissal arguing that a fair trial isn’t possible under the next presidential administration.
Mr. Trump repeatedly condemned the soldier while campaigning for the White House, at one point calling him “a no-good traitor who should have been executed.”
“Thirty years ago he would have been shot,” Mr. Trump said during an Oct. 2015 event.
Sounds fair to me.
