Bowe Bergdahl, the American traitor for whom Barack Obama swapped five Taliban fighters, just got more bad news today. A judge has just decided not to toss out his case over then-candidate Donald Trump’s comments about him – as was previously talked about.

Bowe Bergdahl Judge Refuses to Toss Case Over Trump’s Comments
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A military judge denied a motion by attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to dismiss his case in light of comments made by President Donald Trump.
Col. Jeffery Nance said Monday that Trump’s criticism has not prevented Bergdahl from having a fair sentencing hearing.
Bergdahl, who abandoned his post in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009 and then was captured by the Taliban, faces life in prison. He was released in 2014 in a prisoner swap by President Barack Obama, which was criticized by Trump and other Republicans.
While running for president, Trump disparaged Bergdahl, 31, as a “dirty rotten traitor” and called for him to be executed by firing squad or tossed out of a plane with no parachute.
Good men lost their lives because of Bergdahl’s desertion. He deserves no sympathy.
