Vern Buchanan: No Pardon for Bowe Bergdahl

With the New York Times reporting that Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who was caught by terrorist forces and exchanged for five terrorists, is now asking President Barack Obama for a presidential pardon, a Florida congressman stressed his opposition on Tuesday. 

“It has been seven years since Sgt. Bergdahl chose to abandon his fellow soldiers in Afghanistan during a time of war,” said U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., on Tuesday. “He should be court-martialed and held accountable.”

Buchanan pointed to reports that Bergdahl’s actions led to the death of several American soldiers.
