Judge Nap: White House Hoping People Forget About Bergdahl Case
It's been three and a half months since alleged Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl began making national headlines.
The soldier was in the news for weeks after President Obama made a controversial decision to trade five Taliban commanders for Bergdahl.
The Army's investigation of Bergdahl's disappearance from his platoon is progressing slowly. Judge Andrew Napolitano was asked this morning what he thinks is going on.
Critics wonder whether the investigation is going to become a "whitewash" in order to protect the White House.
Napolitano believes that the White House does hope that people forget about Bergdahl because the president is "personally involved." He argued that at a military trial, questions could be raised about whether President Obama provided material support to terrorists by releasing the "Taliban Five."
He said there could also be questions about Bergdahl's mental state, so that could be delaying the case.
Napolitano also noted that "it's unheard of" for an investigation like this to be led by a general, adding that they're usually handled by lower-ranking officers.
