This morning, U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl pled guilty to one charge of desertion and a charge of misbehaving before the enemy.
The charge stems from Bergdahl's decision to walk off his combat outpost in Afghanistan in 2009. He was eventually captured by the Taliban. Bergdahl was later released in a prison swap with the Taliban in 2014 after five years in captivity.
During last year’s presidential campaign, Donald Trump called Bergdahl “a no-good traitor who should have been executed.”
The charge of misbehavior before the enemy is punishable by life in prison. No word as of yet as to what sentence Bergdahl will be facing.
