Bergdahl's Lawyers Ask to Drop Charges

Lawyers for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl requested on Monday that the charges against him be dropped due to the claim that comments from Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain violated his due process rights. The filing references McCain saying last year that if Bergdahl has no punishment, "we're going to have a hearing in the Senate Armed Services Committee." Bergdahl faces a court-martial and a potential life sentence for charges of desertion and endangering U.S. troops.
