Obama does have a soft spot for people who hate or betray this country so who knows, maybe he’ll do it.

Via Breitbart.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is accused of deserting his Army outpost and was taken prisoner by the Taliban for five years before being freed in exchange for five Taliban prisoners, has requested a pardon from President Obama.

A source told Fox News that, in a letter, Bergdahl both thanked the President for rescuing him in May 2014 in a controversial exchange for five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay and asked for a pardon.

Bergdahl’s legal team submitted copies of a clemency application to the White House, the Pentagon, and the Justice Department immediately after the election, the New York Times reported.

The pardon would avert Bergdahl’s court-martial trial, which is slated to begin April 18.

He is facing charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy that endangered fellow soldiers.

President-elect Donald Trump criticized Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor” who “should have been executed,” the Hill reported.

Trump has also criticized the policy of hostage trading, while promising to be tougher on terrorism than Obama.

    One cowardly little wuss pardoning another. Now maybe we see why he’s not tried and convicted.

    Well, Trump will not pardon him. He also does not believe in using terrorists to control the population…

    When President, Trump should hold a Rose Garden presser with family of Daniel Pearl, and possibly other similar families, saying that he will not coddle terrorists nor trade prisoners or give ransom.

    Couple of things: Where does he work and how could any self respecting serviceman or woman stand to be in the same room with this pos. But I know why…if they say anything they will be kicked out of the service. And has his father shaved his beard?
