Despite the fact 6 US military soldiers lost their lives searching for Bowe Bergdahl while he left his post and ended up with the Taliban, a judge who may have wanted to make a political statement against President Trump announced the shocking decision to let Bergdahl off with no jail time whatsoever.
Where is the justice for these 6 brave Americans who DIED searching for the traitor?
As reported at FoxNews
President Trump tweeted Friday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s sentence– a dishonorable discharge, but no prison time for leaving his post in June 2009 — was a “complete and total disgrace.”
More than eight years after Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan — and unwittingly into the clutches of the Taliban — Bergdahl walked out of a North Carolina courtroom a free man Friday. Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades, was fined, reduced in rank to E1 and dishonorably discharged — but he received no prison time.
Trump, aboard Air Force One en route to meetings in Asia, tweeted his disapproval of the sentence.
The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military.

“The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military,” Trump wrote.
As part of the sentence, Bergdahl will forfeit his pay of $1000 per month for ten months.
Bergdahl was shaking and appeared emotional as the verdict was quickly read.
Bergdahl’s defense lawyer has told reporters after sentencing that his client “has looked forward to today for a long time.”
