    Remember Bowe Bergdahl? He is the former American soldier who abandoned his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

    During the search to find him following his disappearance, as many as six soldiers were killed. Obama then ended up trading five suspected terrorists to bring Bergdahl back to the U.S. as a result.

    His court-martial conviction has now been thrown out due to a claim of bias against the judge, reported The Gateway Pundit.

    A former U.S. Army soldier who pleaded guilty to desertion after leaving his post while deployed in Afghanistan and was subsequently captured and tortured by the Taliban had his court-martial conviction vacated Tuesday, reported Fox News.

    The ruling by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton in Washington D.C. said that military judge Jeffrey Nance, who presided over the court-martial of Bowe Bergdahl, failed to disclose that he had applied to the executive branch for a job as an immigration judge, creating a potential conflict of interest.

    Walton noted that former President Trump criticized Bergdahl during the 2016 presidential campaign. Bergdahl’s lawyers argued that the criticism placed command influence on Nance.

    Walton rejected that argument, but he said a reasonable person could question the judge’s impartiality under the circumstances. It was not clear if the ruling could possibly result in the reinstatement of rank or change of status for Bargdahl’s dishonorable discharge.

    Lawyers. judges and lawgivers are NOT and have NEVER been the stalwarts of Justice. Lawyers, judges and lawgivers are the DESTROYERS of Justice. That will be ending soon enough. I hope their money and remembering of how they destroyed civilization, keeps them cool in Hell.

    THERE WAS A TIME IN THE PAST WHEN LAWYERS WERE OUTLAWED IN THE COLONY OF MASSACHSETTS I THINK, BUT NOT SURE THE DEATH PENALTY WAS EVEN INVOLVED.

    I think the only fair thing is to drop Bergdahl off where they found him

    He was appointed by GWB but then became the presiding FISA Judge. He arraigned Roger Clemens for 'lying to congress" I guess at one point in time it was a crime to lie to congress.

    I suppose we should consider ourselves fortunate that the activist judge did not decide to force federal taxpayers to give the deserter several billion dollars in "reparations".

    My Dream: A UCMJ Judge with a gigantic pair, finds a case and ruling by this activist judge, and reverses his ruling. Hopefully letting a criminal out of jail. Let the games begin!
