Take the time to watch this. This veteran hits the nail on the head 100% on the court-martial and other things. https://t.co/SFV7yxMsdF

Well this is certainly convenient news for Democrats in an election year:

From Fox News:
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his combat outpost in Afghanistan and spent five years in captivity, will be court-martialed under a new commander-in-chief.
A military judge decided Tuesday to delay Bergdahl’s trial from August until February to provide time for resolving disputes over the defense team’s access to classified documents.
A platoon mate of Bergdahl’s blasted the delay this morning and summed up the Obama administration in just a few seconds:

In 2014, the Obama administration traded five Taliban commanders who were being held at Gitmo for Bergdahl. President Obama made the announcement of Bergdahl’s release in a Rose Garden appearance with his parents. Susan Rice at the time also said that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”
The court martial delay might spare Democrats some awkward election-year questions, as well as make sure the story isn’t in the headlines during the final months of Obama’s presidency.
@FoxFriendsFirst This should have been over with months ago. I can just guess at who wants this trial to be held in 2017.

The Administration must be grateful for a delay since the Rose Garden show erroneously put a deserter on a pedestal. https://t.co/5ZrT1zsqNO

@FoxFriendsFirst FIFY –>Bowe Bergdahl court-martial delayed until 2017 to avoid embarrassing optics for Dems ahead of November election

More like to prevent Obama being further embarrassed while in office. https://t.co/jUOeeJNlDg
