There wasn't any earth-shattering breaking news from my mini-Bergdahl beat today (other than a motion the defense filed was denied), so I used the time to enterprise. I dove a little more into the documents his defense team has been filing & their attachments.
One thing that stuck out to me - his defense team was tracking each time Trump made a comment about Bergdahl on a national stage. And they were using that as a way to push the judge to overturn the protective order barring the release of Bergdahl's interview with Army investigators. His lawyers told me that the interview would be a way to combat the barrage of negative publicity, most notably of which, was coming from Trump.
I scored an exclusive interview with Bergdahl's civilian lawyer Eugene R. Fidell.
