Bergdahl's lawyers said they know of at least two times Abrams has met with prosecutors behind closed-doors for consultation. They called the conversations a "flagrant disregard of his obligations as an official statutorily charged with the performance of judicial acts" in a motion they filed earlier this month.
Lt. Col. Frank Rosenblatt, one of Bergdahl's lawyers, said that the conversations are inappropriate. Abrams, the four-star general over U.S. Forces Command, referred the charges against Bergdahl for court-martial.
